HOW YOU’LL SPEND THE DAY

Arrive early

Techtober 2022 will be a full-day event, starting with registration and breakfast from 8-9 am. We also encourage guests to arrive on Wednesday and take advantage of the discounted hotel room rate.

Informational vendor booths will be up all day and we’ll have a full schedule of interactive classes you can choose from.

Popular sessions will be offered twice. This keeps classes small and gives everyone a chance to participate.

Full day of value-packed opportunities

Techtober is an all-day event. There are ample opportunities for you to ask questions, watch demos, engage vendors and peers, and most importantly, have fun.

Bring your appetite!

We’ll serve food throughout the expo including breakfast, lunch and a cocktail hour with hors dourves.

Ask The Experts – Interactive Q&A

Everything about Techtober is interactive. From classes to demos and vendor booths, you will have chances to have technicians, engineers and executives answer your questions.

Join peer user groups

Brainstorm and share best practices with other leaders in your industry about how to overcome challenges – like remote or hybrid work.

Door prizes and giveaways

It’s not all about education! We’ll break for fun and games, too.

Build key relationships

Stick around for networking at the cocktail hour after the event wraps. You can tour the casino and gamble if you want. We also have discounted hotel rooms for attendees who would rather spend the night.

 

TECHTOBER HAS INSIGHTS FOR EVERY INDUSTRY

The classes, demos and user groups will address both general audiences and industry-specific needs.

Everyone will benefit from information shared about popular solutions like MiVoice Business System.

During sessions and at booths you’ll find experts ready to answer your questions about E911/Kari’s Law/RAY BAUM Act Compliance, migrating to the cloud, and integrating Microsoft Teams into your current Mitel solution.

Speakers with deep knowledge about communication solutions for specific industries, like hospitality and retail, will lead sessions.

Credit unions, financial services companies and healthcare providers will not want to miss out on what’s shared about contact centers – especially Mitel’s contact center roadmap.

We’ll also have consultant user groups for governmental entities and schools.

You won’t be overwhelmed by choice

Once you sign up, we’ll help you identify which classes to attend, and who to speak to one-on-one so that you hit the information jackpot at Techtober.
