Layered Tech Preps LT PACT 2008

January 29, 2007 — (WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) — Conferences and exhibitions play a significant role in the hosting industry, helping companies to broaden their market reach and potentially draw in new customers and partners.  But like some other areas of the industry, the market has become saturated with dozens of conferences and exhibitions being held each year, including giants like HostingCon and ISPCON, a challenge for the operators of smaller events. 

LT PACT 2008 Hosting EventFor two years, utility hosting services provider Layered Technologies has worked to distinguish LT PACT event as an important consideration among hosting related events.  Though it is held by a hosting company, LT PACT is not strictly self-serving, but is designed to benefit its attendees and the presenting companies within the context of the environment of Layered Tech’s customers and partners, says president and COO Todd Abrams.

“It’s not directly a sales objective for Layered Tech,” says Abrams. “It’s really about broadening the overall knowledge base of the people there, as well as experts of the industry that our clients and partners don’t really get to talk with.”

Returning to Las Vegas, Nevada’s Caesars Palace Resort from June 25 to 27, LT PACT 2008 will offer presentations from industry analysts, key industry players, Web hosts and other leaders, discussing issues that are pertinent to the industry.  The conference, now in its third year, will provide attendees with further industry insights, the ability to interact with new products in workshops and ways to boost their revenue with improved business practices.  Read on >>
