SMB Nation Announces Theme, Agenda via New Web Site for its 2013 Fall Conference

SMB Nation announced that it will hold its 11th Annual Fall Conference Oct 10-12, 2013, at the Rio Conference Center in Las Vegas. With the conference kicking off officially with pre-day sessions on Wednesday, Oct. 9, this year’s theme is based on “LivExperience” and will be touted as an event that will give attendees the opportunity to master emerging technologies, explore the industry trends impacting their MSP practices and customers, and will feature numerous opportunities to network and meet potential business partners.

In addition, in order to keep attendees and sponsors abreast of all of the components surrounding this year’s fall conference, SMB Nation has also introduced and launched a completely brand-new Web site specifically dedicated to the 2013 Fall Conference. Go to:, where you will be able to find session descriptions, a full agenda, speaker bios, event details, plus a video from our own Harrybbb, discussing why this year’s fall conference is a must-attend for everyone in the SMB industry.


In true SMB Nation fashion, this year’s fall conference will give attendees the opportunity of focusing on one of three content tracks—the "Geek Speak,” Business, or Community track.

The Geek Speak Track contains highly technical content with a pathway that focuses on building the “Coolest Company In The World” (CCW), where you complete four classes in a row to understand and implement a complete SMB solution.  Following these sessions, you will be able to start building a CCW as soon as you return home from the SMB Nation LivExperience.

The conference's Business Track focuses primarily on sales, marketing and business opportunities in the SMB IT sector. Specific session titles include: “How to Sell Against the Cloud;” Strategies for On-Premise and Cloud Solutions-Hybrid IT;” and “Why Most Partner Programs #FAIL.”

The Community Track is geared toward channel members who want to network with their colleagues and understand recent developments in the SMB technology channel. This track features a number of SMB Nation community sponsors who will make educational presentations on the industry’s most pressing topics.

“When it came to deciding the theme and content for this year’s fall conference, my staff and I all agreed with a resounding ‘yes,” on one basic (yet very important) revelation: Feedback. Feedback. Feedback,” said Harry Brelsford, Founder and Chairman, SMB Nation. “The 11th annual fall conference has been re-architected incorporating community feedback on what you want a three-day, independent SMB technology conference to be. It’s resulted in a new approach to align with new emerging technologies, business models and conference formats.”

This year’s SMB Nation Fall Conference has already gained support from an enthusiastic and well-known sponsor community, which includes: D&H Distributing, Microsoft, Lenovo, StorageCraft and Western Digital.
