your preferred hot topics and offer everyone
a voice, with expert facilitation from our network
of analyst partners.

Meaningful dialogues
through the 1-1 meetings

A small number of senior executives from leading and alternative suppliers are onsite. They’re not there for a 1-way ear bashing, but for 2-way personalised dialogue to learn more about your challenges and concerns, and to discuss how
they may help.

Why invest in the Cloud & DC Edge Experience?

Meeting_icon-02

Come face-to-face with
your target market

Nothing is as powerful as meeting face-to-face, but time poor, key decision makers, are incredibly hard to access. For 6 years ADAPT has put people and organisations in unique and powerful positions of advantage via proven events and intelligent matchmaking platforms.

Stand_icon

Tailored exhibition space for Technology, Product & Literature Display

There is a limited amount of exhibition space as part of the Summit. As the only event offering a hybrid of face-to-face meetings with actual technological display – this presents your executives with the opportunity to have onsite demonstration of your company’s products and solutions.

Timing_icon

Insight and timing
is everything

Traditional sales cycles are inefficient and laborious. A key challenge for solution providers is to meet the right decision makers when they plan to invest.
ADAPT’s deep customer knowledge and survey data on Australian organisations is shared with all Strategic Partners to discover and highlight the most
suited opportunities, including their 6-24 month investment priorities
and incumbent suppliers.

Intelligent_icon_2

Intelligent Matching

To connect the right people at the right time for the right reason, we bring stakeholders together at Cloud & DC Edge event based on a qualified data-driven match making system. Qualified VIPs with specific investment plans and business drivers are matched to strategic partners with aligned core capabilities, the capacity to deliver, ability to service, and desire to grow.
