More Than 340 Attend Photizo’s Transform 2012 European Conference

MIDWAY, KY—Last week, 344 delegates traveled to Twickenham Rugby Stadium to attend Photizo Group’s fourth European conference, setting an all-time attendance record that outpaced the 2012 Global conference by more than 30 attendees.

The conference, which was headlined by keynote presenter Sir Clive Woodward OBE, featured 25 speakers, 26 breakout sessions, two panels, and a wonderful reception at Hampton Court hosted by Newfield IT and Nuance.

“The conference keeps getting better and the turnout this year was a great indicator of how much value the industry is placing on this event,” said Ed Crowley, CEO and founder of Photizo. “You know when you come to this conference you will get the information to transform your business and take away solutions to sharpen your competitive edge.”

Photizo Group’s conferences have continued to grow since the company’s first event—which was held in 2009 in San Antonio and Amsterdam—especially with channel partners.  More than 150 MSPs and dealers and almost 180 resellers attended the two-day event last week, and Ricoh, a Diamond Sponsor at Transform, brought channel partners from Europe and South Africa to align their organizational strategy and best practices. “What became clear is that MPS and end-to-end document-management solutions hold the key for the next stage of industry development,” said Aaron Warham, Director of NAPPS. “This is not exactly a surprise to the UK channel,” he continued, “but the conference gave clear evidence, case studies, and arguments on how the channel can transform and be fully prepared for its next stage of success.”

NewField IT, a Platinum Sponsor at Transform and host of the wonderful reception at Hampton Court, used the event as a springboard to launch a number of new business products, including a new business intelligence tool, CompleteView, and a browser-based version of Asset DB, WebSmart. The company also announced a new partnership with OpenText for enterprise fax solutions.

“In the last year, we have been very busy moving the business forward with new products, initiatives, and partnerships, and we are excited to use the Photizo Transform Conference to make several new announcements which will further shape our business for the next 12 months,” said Robert Newry, managing director of Newfield IT.
