Put away your coats, throw open the windows, and celebrate: Spring is HERE! And with the blooming flowers comes tradeshows and events season — and blossoming opportunities.

As the Integrated Marketing Manager here at Vertical IQ, this is one of my favorite times of the year. Aside from the travel — which is always awesome — there are so many opportunities for us to connect with our customers and prospects in person. If you know us, you know we’re all about relationships, so we’ll take any chance we can to get out from behind the Zoom screen. We love any opportunity to shake a long-time customer’s hand or eat lunch with some newfound friends, and that’s the real beauty of these shows. Coming back well-caffeinated, energized with swag-filled bags, and full of lots of stories for the team — it’s pretty easy to understand why we always love this time of year.

And of course, having the chance to share the power of our Industry Intelligence at these events is always a huge plus. So if you happen to be attending any of our upcoming events, we’d love to see you! Here is where you will be able to find our VIQ colleagues this Spring:
