- Product/solution positioning
- The CATAPULT sales model that has propelled CATAPULT into the forefront of retail POS
- Industry targets
- Who your competition is and how to outsell them
Ignite 2018 is all about thought-leadership, education, networking and idea generation. Come mingle with sharp, like minded business executives like yourself and turn your plans into your retail success story, five years and beyond.
“The Ignite conference was more than just a look back at where we’ve come or a look forward to the cutting edge technologies on the horizon- it was an invaluable networking, leadership, and goal planning conference with wide reaching use for every industry. I will be back again, and again, and again!”
