“Rich invited me to the first Executive Vendor Summit when I was just starting my company. I thought he was nuts to try to get competitors in the same room, but I went anyway. That Summit and every one since has been great. Over the years I have learned, networked, found competitors are decent folks, cut deals and made lifelong friends. I will never miss the Executive Vendor Summit—it has created many opportunities for me!”

“I look forward to the HU's EVS every year because it provides a unique way for vendors to collaborate and strategize without the distractions of our day-to-day routines. Where we may typically find ourselves competing for the same client, this event focuses more on the industry, where we are now and what we see for the future. This is a forum where we can openly discuss our challenges and celebrate our ‘wins’ in a relaxed, fun environment."

"For me, the Executive Vendor Summit offers the most unique opportunity to foster and extend relationships with executives from other companies that are selling to and serving a shared client base. Every year at the Summit, I walked away either having addressed a key client issue with someone's help, found a new opportunity or helped broker one, or started a new partnership. This is one conference where virtually everyone is in a position to make something happen. That's what makes the Summit so worthwhile."
