Call for companies to visit on The Power Trip at ASAE Annual Meeting

At ASAE’s 2016 Technology Conference, I hosted The Power Trip, a guided tour of the trade show floor to introduce participants to CEOs of leading association technology companies with various funding models, and to learn about how their funding philosophy affects product delivery and support.

I’m going to do round two of The Power Trip at ASAE’s 2017 Annual Meeting in Toronto, August 12-15, 2017. Today, I’m calling all technology companies that would like to have a handful of highly tuned-in association technology executives and consultants delivered straight to your booth for a meet and greet, and to tell the story of why your funding model makes your company awesome.

Requirements:

  1. CEO must be present in your company’s trade show booth at an appointed time to greet participants. I’ll work with you to arrange a time that agrees with your schedule.
  2. I’m looking for a good mix of privately-held, private equity backed (majority and minority owned), and venture capital backed companies.

Go on “The Power Trip” at ASAE’s Technology Conference, Dec 13

After doing some research, I was stunned to learn that more than $100M has been invested in association technology companies this year. Why is all this money suddenly flowing in the association technology market?

During The Power Trip, CEOs and C-Level executives at some of the best-known association tech companies have agreed to take your questions about the money flooding into our sector.

The Power Trip is a 90-minute conversation criss-crossing the ASAE Technology Conference trade show floor on Tuesday, December 13, you’ll hear directly from top executives on how Venture Capital and Private Equity money has affected their customers and businesses. As a counterpoint, you’ll also hear from a technology company CEO who refuses to accept funding, and the rationale behind that decision.

There’s no fee to participate in The Power Trip, but I do ask that you RSVP.

If you’re curious about how high finance is affecting your association’s technology suite, this is a conversation you’ll definitely want to join.
