Autotask Corporation Signs as Platinum Sponsor of First Major SMB Online Conference
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Small Business Technology author Karl Palachuk announced today that Autotask Corporation, the leading provider of hosted IT business management software, has signed on as a Platinum level sponsor of the Small Biz Thoughts online conference, “Managing for Success 2012.” The June conference will focus on building successful business processes and feature some of the best business and technology speakers in the U.S.
The online conference – Managing for Success 2012 – is the first event of its kind targeting technology providers and computer consultants. “We’ve built a great collection of speakers and sponsors,” said Palachuk, “and we’re very proud to have Autotask as a Platinum sponsor.”
Conference speakers include Stephanie Chandler and Patrick Schwerdtfeger. Chandler is the author of seven books, including Own Your Niche on the Internet and Beyond (Authority Publishing, 2012). Her Business Info Guide web site – http://www.BusinessInfoGuide.com – is an extremely popular destination for small business owners. Patrick Schwerdtfeger is an internationally recognized authority on social media marketing and the author of several books, including Marketing Shortcuts for the Self-Employed (Wiley, 2011).
The conference is “virtual” (online only) and will run 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day on June 26-28, 2012. Attendees can choose to listen live or also have access to the recorded sessions. In all, the conference will broadcast eighteen hours of programming in three days.
“Autotask has always been a strong supporter of the IT community,” said Palachuk. “Their involvement in this conference allows us to reach a larger audience and educate VARs all over the world.”
