ASCII events have been nothing short of great. I have the ability to interact with fellow peers, manufactures and vendors. I am able to ask questions and get the answer directly from the source. Through the events I am able to learn about the growing trends of the industry. I consider the time spent to be a great investment to the future of my company.Stanley Louissaint

Great event! This was my first ASCII event. I came as a guest, but left as a member. It’s a superb forum for hearing about vendors and products I didn’t know about. The fact that the vendors actually are focused on the MSP community is even better. Some of the speakers helped me to see what I’ve been missing in providing services to my customers. What I learned will help me grow and help my customers. I’ll definitely be attending events in the future.James M. Golden
President, Golden Consulting Inc.
The ASCII Success Summit is a must attend event for me. It’s the perfect balance of peer-to-peer networking, continuing education and vendor interaction. I’ve made more professional connections attending ASCII events than I have ever made anywhere else.C.J. Ezell
