By now many of you partners out there have heard about Xperience Efficiency (XE)2013 coming to Washington D.C. and Dallas, TX this June. Xperience Efficiency is a customer-centric one day event (sessions repeat daily for 3 days) with more than 30 breakout sessions focused on energy, sustainability, and innovation. Full details on the event can be found here.
We encourage you to invite your customers to attend this event but we also have a special evening planned just for you. The Partner Showcases will take place following the closing ceremonies on days 2 and 3 of XE 2013 (June 5 or 6 for D.C. and June 19 or 20 for Dallas). After some drinks and schmoozing, we will have interactive presentations and discussions on how to turn the Energy Dilemma into an Opportunity for growth by offering Energy Management Services. Later, we’ll have a catered dinner and a chance for more networking.
The evening will provide an opportunity for you to exchange ideas and best practices with thought leaders from around the world. Industry, technology, academia, and more will all be represented, and all will be focused on the same over-arching goal: Efficiency. Whether you’ve been active with Sustainability issues or not, you can bet your customers are receiving more and more pressure to do more with less – and they’re looking to you to guide them.
By bundling Energy Management Services with your existing offerings, you can help save your customers up to 30% in energy costs. That not only makes you their energy hero, but it also helps free up their budgets to buy more software, servers, storage, and Cisco switches from you. Selling Energy Services positions you as an energy consultant, and builds your short term and long term sales with upgrades and refreshes.
As an added enticement to attend, we will be giving away an iPad Mini at each Partner session, as well as 5 Energy Step 1 Data Center Assessments for your customers (a $1,500/each value with potential for 10x that amount in Projects that result from the recommendations made in the assessments).
Register here for the partner event in Washington DC and here for the partner event in Dallas TX , but be sure to do it immediately because space is limited and seats are available for this partner only event on a first come, first serve basis. As I’ve said before: Energy can be a dilemma or an opportunity. Will you seize this opportunity or allow rising energy costs and shrinking IT budgets to crush your growth potential? The choice is yours. Hope we see you in Dallas or D.C.
