The second annual Pivot to Profit event, hosted by NSCA, PSA Security, and SYNNEX, is attracting big names in technology. These companies want to teach integrators how to “pivot” to take advantage of new revenue opportunities.

Pivot to Profit will take place on Sept. 28-29, 2017, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel & Conference Center, Chicago O’Hare.

Keynote speaker James Waddell, Cannon Design’s managing principal of digital buildings, shares what Cannon Design clients expect today from their building technology – and what the A/E community expects from integrators as a result.

Attendees will find out what clients really want when it comes to IoT, XaaS, intelligent buildings, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence.

Other Pivot to Profit sessions include:

  • “What to Measure for Better RMR” (Nick Points, CharTec)
  • “Don’t Take on Cyber Risks” (Rob Simopoulos, Launch Security)
  • “What XaaS Will Bring in the Future” (Peter Luff, Science Logic; Sean Devereaux, Tech Electronics)
  • “The Lowdown on Financing for Managed Services” (Lee Rozeboom, GreatAmerica)
  • “Are You Selling or Building?” (Paul Cronin, Cronin Corp.)

If integrators spend two days at this event, they’ll walk away knowing what they need to do to continue to stay relevant.”
