Top Ten Reasons to Attend the MAPPS Winter Meeting - #2, Networking

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Wednesday, January 2, 2013
Going to a MAPPS conference is NOT meeting with your competition.

Rather, it is your "coopetition" or "competimates” -- firms with whom you also partner or cooperate.

Every year, hundreds of millions of dollars in business-to-business transactions occur between MAPPS member firms, much of it originating from relationships at MAPPS conferences.

MAPPS members have said attending a MAPPS conference is an enormous savings in time and money. You can see over 100 clients - principals of other firms you work or want to work with - at a MAPPS meeting. It would otherwise take months, and thousands of dollars in airfare, hotels, and other expenses to see these same colleagues separately.

MAPPS attracts the top people in the geospatial market -- the principals, owners, partners and senior executives of the leading firms in the community. The deal-makers. The decision-makers. The people YOU want to meet with.

Quality time with your peers at MAPPS is not five minutes in your booth on an exhibit floor. Rather, MAPPS meetings provide an opportunity to meet with your colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere at a venue that facilitates partnership-building, networking, and developing business-to-business relationships.
Register today. In addition to the networking opportunities, check out full conference program of sessions and presentations. Take a look at who is already registered to attend.
