The PPAI Expo Direct-2-You wrapped up last week, signaling the official start of 2021 for the promo products world! After a year full of “unprecedented times” emails, changed plans, adjusted expectations, and so much more, we’re all ready to start looking forward to a new year full of fresh opportunities, trends, and growth.
That’s where SAGE Conference 2021 comes in! For the first time ever, this year’s event will be completely virtual. We’re continuing our innovative streak with a 100% online, live format where you’ll be able to make connections, share ideas, and prepare for a bright industry future. But if you’re not already convinced, here are five reasons that you won’t want to miss out on SAGE Conference Virtual this March 24:
1. Be the first to hear about everything new at SAGE.
Nobody likes to be the last to hear big news! Get a front-row view seat at your desk or on your couch for sneak peeks at the latest SAGE enhancements to save you time and money. We can’t spill the beans about the new releases in this blog, but you definitely won’t want to miss SAGE CEO Eric Natinsky’s live session revealing everything new and coming soon.
2. Learn new techniques, tricks, and tips with innovative live education sessions.
The most successful doers in any business know that there’s always more to learn. In our live education sessions at SAGE Conference Virtual, you can get the inside scoop on website trends, learn expert tips to make your SAGE experience smoother than ever, and find out what other distributors are doing to stay at the top of the pack. You’ll also have the opportunity to get your business ready to succeed in 2021 with sessions covering creative ways to carve out a success story and adjust to the new normal we’re all still getting to know.
We’ll have recorded education sessions available for on-demand viewing, too! These on-demand sessions feature a live Q&A where presenters will be ready to answer all your questions and cover topics ranging from SAGE basics to project management, custom catalogs, and more.
Whether you pop in for just a few sessions or stay to watch them all, you’re sure to end the day with some extra wrinkles on your brain.
3. Get to know your fellow distributors.
Everyone misses getting together with industry peers to talk shop and build their network, but a virtual event doesn’t mean networking is off the table! This year, we’ve built in special blocks of time specifically for you to get to know your fellow distributors and to discuss the topics that are important to you. With eight different interactive roundtables, you’ll have the floor to share your opinions on the industry’s outlook, discuss company stores or email campaigns, hear how your peers are handling this year’s unique challenges, and so much more. We even have a session just for you to share your ideas on future SAGE product development!
4. Have all your burning SAGE questions answered.
Have you been sitting on a SAGE question that you weren’t sure how to get answered? No matter what kind of inquiry you’ve got – big or small, general or specific, new or old – our SAGE experts will be standing by to give you the answer you need.
You can also free receive personalized one-on-one training with no appointment, live from a SAGE Expert at the SAGE Answer Station. The Answer Station is first-come, first-served, so make sure to stop in and ask away!
