Become a Strategic Partner

The Summit’s Partners are strategically selected solution providers chosen by their product portfolios and expertise relevant to the requirements and investment plans of the attending executives. In parallel to enhancing their market leaderships, our Partners engage with the qualified audience of C-suite and Operational Executives using a variety of interactive formats.  The pre-arranged 1-2-1 meetings enable to qualify business opportunities in person, the thought leadership sessions will educate attendees about your products or expertise and themed-round table chairmanships will allow you to engage in the debates with smaller groups of the desired targets with the specific investment focus. We provide our Partners with the tools that allow post-Summit engagement and support follow-up activities with all attendees even if they do not engage in person on-site. Our goal is to deliver a measurable ROI and build long-term working relationships.
