Salt Lake City - IT Company, VLCM, LC kicked off their Second Annual IT Exchange Tech Expo, February 4 at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, Utah. Featuring 50 partners including Platinum Sponsors Hewlett Packard Enterprise and HP, the air was electric with innovative technology solutions for organizations from startup to enterprise. The expo not only included a trade show from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., but was host to sixteen breakout sessions with topics ranging from Finding ROI in the Cloud to Rugged Mobility Solutions. VLCM expresses their utmost gratitude for each partner that took the time to set up an engaging table, and for the 360 customers who traveled as far as Wyoming to attend the yearly event.
Equipped with ShoreTel-sponsored tote bags, an exclusive IT Exchange shirt, and Superhero USBs in hand, attendees were able to eat, network, learn, and win their way through the expo. The large hall comfortably fit 50 vendor booths, dozens of tables to sit down and relax at, and thousands in prizes.

2016 featured a 44% increase in attendees, and a 21% increase in companies from the previous year. The expo however wasn’t all business and networking, vendors were able to engage customers with Xbox games, a basketball shootout, drawings, and even balloon animals.
The praise was extraordinary from both partners and customers. First-time IT Exchange partner, Ty Goulding from Crestron noted that he had attended “countless trade shows & customer/integrator events. Some large, some small, some well-organized, and others not as much. Without going over the top on kudos, the VLCM IT Exchange has been the best of them all…The little things that a sponsor like us notices; double sided badges for when the lanyard gets twisted, constant flow of food/snacks to keep attendees comfortable & happy, [and] plenty of giveaways… [VLCM] did an outstanding job.”
VLCM would like to again thank all partners and customers who attended the expo. If you can’t wait till next year, sign up for our monthly newsletters for news on all upcoming IT events. Stay tuned for 2017’s save the date, and an exclusive video from Epic Marketing.
