Also, the summit is likely to have thought of exciting openings, stress on sponsors to speak about use cases and also to have better interaction between the sponsors and the members than ever. All partners are expected to appreciate and take a lot of inputs.
“We have a wider set of sponsors in terms of technology. Hence it will be beneficial for partners to look at allying with newer solutions providers. We have some exciting speakers who will touch upon the market conditions, whats good, whats bad and how to grow business overall.
