A First Timer’s Guide to the 2014 Asigra Partner Summit

Posted by Maria Nicoletti

Attending next week’s annual Asigra Partner Summit for the first time? Don’t fret…so am I! I joined Asigra in autumn 2013 and Asigra Partner Summit Logo have been busy preparing for the Summit ever since, and can’t wait to meet our partners.

We’ve compiled a fantastic agenda filled with networking activities, an Asigra Genius bar and over 30 sessions across 3 tracks for Marketing, Sales and Technology professionals. Our keynote and guest speaker lineup is stellar – Steven Johnson, Marc Staimer, Hank Barnes, Meghan Anderson, Christine Laperriere and Krista LaRiviere will be on hand to inspire us. And don’t worry; we’ve incorporated this year’s World Cup into the event.

Here are 5 tips to help you get the most out of your experience at the 2014 Asigra Partner Summit.

  1. Embrace Your Newbie-ness

    Don’t be shy. If you have any questions throughout the Summit, visit our Registration Desk. This is your hub for everything to do with the Summit. Our team is on hand to help you. Keep an eye out for dark blue name badges - all Asigra staff members will be wearing these to help you pick us out in the crowd.

  2. Plan Ahead

    Check in at our Registration Desk on Monday to avoid the lineup Tuesday morning. Grab your Asigra swag and conference agenda. I recommend you figure out which sessions you want to attend in advance as rooms fill up quickly. Also, if you are an Asigra Partner Summit newbie, you definitely need to visit our Hands-on Lab. Open Monday to Wednesday, it has 16 tables covering a variety of technical topics and it is your best chance to gain hands-on experience with the latest Asigra technology. A newbie to the Asigra Partner Summit is the Asigra Genius Bar – next to the Hands-on Lab.

  3. Be Social

    Make the effort to meet other Asigra Partners. Expand your professional network and ask your peers’ questions that can help you grow your cloud backup and recovery managed services. Learn from their experiences! We have daily activities to help facilitate peer-to-peer networking, which brings me to my next tip…

  4. Have Fun

    On Monday we have a cocktail reception to kick off the Summit at the top of the hotel. There’s a networking lunch on Tuesday afternoon and in the evening we have a cocktail reception and the annual Asigra Hybrid Partner Awards dinner. On Wednesday we are introducing another Summit newbie – a birds-of-a-feather networking lunch. Say that 3 times fast. We’ll have the lunch tables arranged with a variety of pre-determined topics to help you share knowledge and experiences with one another. Just sit at the table with a topic you want to discuss. Asigra is known for throwing fun-filled parties, and this year is no different. World Cup will be in full swing and what better way to close the Summit than with a bit of footy! Join us for the World Backup Games as we head to Toronto’s historic distillery district to watch some World Cup games, put your foosball skills to the test and play some Wii. Last but not least, we have a daily selfie contest – post a selfie of you at the Summit to Twitter or Instagram using #asigrasummit and enter to win daily prizes.

  5. Stay Connected

    Stay up-to-date with all of the Summit happenings by following us on Twitter at @Asigra and #asigrasummit. Once the Summit ends and you return to your office, make sure you stay connected with the Asigra partner network. And please contact us if you have any questions about our Marketing, Professional Services, Training and/or Support offerings.

    I hope you find these tips helpful. For Asigra Partners that are Summit veterans – please share any additional tips below.
