The Rivergate Marketing team traveled to New Orleans, LA to attend the 2023 Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) Executive Conference. At the event, the team was able to network with clients, vendors, and industry leaders.
Rivergate Marketing also had the opportunity to present at the conference in one of the breakout sessions. The session was titled From Hiring Top Talent to Driving Sales Growth, Your LinkedIn Presence and Activity Matters – Practical Tips to Gain Visibility. We received very positive feedback from the many attendees. If you missed it, you can download our presentation slides here! Stay tuned for the premiere of our presentation recording.
Here are some highlights from the team:
The 2023 CSIA conference was an incredible experience for me. It was amazing to connect with both present and potential clients, and it was equally gratifying to spend quality time with our Rivergate Marketing team. As a remote team, being in the company of so many like-minded professionals was truly remarkable, providing us with an invaluable opportunity for connection and personal development.
It was also an honor to have the chance to speak at the conference, discussing a subject that we are deeply passionate about: leveraging LinkedIn networking within the system integrator industry. I encourage you to stay tuned for a recap of our presentation!
I had a great time at this year’s CSIA conference. Marketing is my passion, getting to share that with conference goers was really fun and it was great to see other professionals in the industry’s perspectives. Thank you to everyone who participated in a podcast interview with me; each of you had such great insight and I’m excited to share it with our listeners. Make sure you’re subscribed to our podcast to be notified when our 2023 CSIA episodes premiere.
It was an honor to see Rivergate Marketing awarded the Partner Company of the Year, and congrats to the other winners as well! I can’t agree more with Georgia in her speech. To paraphrase, I look forward to continuing to help the system integrator community and grow the industry through marketing.
New Orleans was beautiful! There were so many sights to see. From live bands playing along the street to the gorgeous waterfront, not to mention the great food, there was a lot to take in. I’m grateful to have been able to spend time in person with my team. I’m lucky to work with such interesting and kind teammates. I can’t wait to see everyone next year in Dallas, TX!
I think the 2023 Executive Conference was the best CSIA conference to date! With a great lineup of keynote speakers, there was something for everyone. My favorite presentation was Alex Chausovsky from The Miller Resource Group (formerly at ITR Economics), whose down-to-earth economic presentation gave SIs a roadmap to navigate the upcoming economic uncertainty. I was excited Rivergate Marketing was asked to give a presentation on LinkedIn, and enjoyed sharing my knowledge with an intrepid group of attendees who found their way to the track 2 meeting room which was a bit out of the way. We had a great Q&A session afterward, and I look forward to answering additional questions in upcoming episodes of our podcast.
It was wonderful to catch up with our existing clients, and make lots of new connections at all the conference social events – especially speed networking! The real highlight of the event for me was getting to spend time with our team in person.
I found the 2023 CSIA conference to be an inspiring and stimulating experience. As a first-time attendee, I was unsure of what to expect from such a large, high-profile event. I found that there was a certain air of excitement, curiosity and willingness for collaboration. In between seminars and networking activities, attendees were enthusiastic to share observations and recent creations. With the backdrop of New Orleans, I was able to bond with not only the Rivergate team, but also clients and professionals from around the globe. Watching our team speak to our company’s values and present on cutting-edge topics was topped off by being presented with the CSIA Partner of the Year Award. Joining this year’s CSIA conference was a true privilege and I look forward to next year’s!
