Exhibitor and sponsor vendors are foundational to CS Week. New in 2019, platinum and gold sponsors presented TED-style™ information talks in CS Week’s Innovation Alley. They also staged accredited College classes, led Synergy Groups focused around their solutions, presented Sponsor Solutions workshops and participated as panelists and speakers throughout the Week. What benefits do sponsors and exhibitors derive from this investment? Enhanced visibility, year-long advertising and access to CS Week’s vast database are just a few of the many benefits. Vendors can also meet customer service and IT decision-makers face-to-face and help guide utilities regardless of their maturity along their customer engagement journey. Through this partnership with CS Week, vendors reach deeper and wider into the utility market to showcase their success stories and promote their products and services. Listen to five vendors’ perspectives and appreciate why their annual investment in CS Week brings innumerable paybacks and important insights.
