On June 12, 2013 over 150 people poured into Busch Stadium ready for an action packed day of education and fun! After months of planning the day ran smooth and left all attendees satisfied and more knowledgeable. This day was geared toward everyone regardless of industry and size, making it a perfect reason to get out of the office, enjoy the great location, and sit in on any of the all star presentations in the line up!
The day began with a Welcome address and company review from President/CEO Steve Leidholdt and Marketing/Event Coordinator Lauren Ross. Moving right into the keynote presentation “What’s New In Technology, and Why Should You Care?” Presented By: Patrick D. Scott from Avaya.
Following the keynote presentation guests got the ballpark food experience! Filling up on BBQ, desserts, and all of the home-style sides you crave with your BBQ. After we were filled with our ballpark favorites, breakout groups began. We had 6 breakout groups, and attendees were able to choose two discussions to attend. Breakout session were focused around:
- Avaya IP Office “It really does everything for your office except make coffee!
- Motorola Wireless “Secure wireless networks and devices that really work.”
- Radvision Scopia “Collaboration on the device of your choice.”
- Computer Instruments “Interactive Voice Response Can Save Your Budget.”
- Mutare Software “Voice to text, Voice to CRM, Voice to Billing Systems, Smart Notification, and BYOD Strategies.”
Gathering back in our main presentation area, all guests were entered to win one of our many prizes! This included 5 iPads, and Cardinals gear! A big thank you to our sponsors for donating our iPads, and a huge CONGRATS to our 5 iPad winners!
Richard Beasley – Innovet, Johnna Ferguson – Gray, Ritter, and Graham, P.C., Scott Huckabee – A1 Truck & Auto, Ray Weston – UniGroup, Inc., and Kevin Oshea- UniGroup
$1,000.00 donation was made to St. Louis Charity The Bridge. Beginning in March we asked for nominations from friends, coworkers, and business associates for someone who spends their time volunteering with a charity or community cause. One winner was chosen from these nominations, and that individual received opening day Cardinals tickets to the Champion Club courtesy of STL Communications. The winner also got to choose the charity that our donation would be made too! Executive Director of The Bridge, Kathleen Wilder joined us at the Technology Fair and accepted the $1,000.00 donation check.
We wrapped up the day of education and fun with tours of Busch Stadium, and drinks and snacks in the Champions Club! With a professional photographer set up on the field, we had a great time posing as “wanna be” baseball players!
This was an outstanding turn out, and we are very thankful to all who were able to attend! We look forward to hosting a Technology Fair every year! Until then, don’t miss our upcoming events:
