Customer Newsletter



Dear Valued Customer,

It’s officially October, which means that CEC’s annual Business Technology Conference is just around the corner. BTC is one way that we like to share our passion for technology by offering you free education to support your technology and business decisions. Our 2015 events will be held in Iowa on Oct. 13 at the Coralville Marriott, and in Wisconsin on Oct. 28 at Lambeau Field. Join us for:

An "About CEC" breakfast, offered due to customer requests, where our team will share key information about CEC and how to better work with a systems integrator. 

One of my favorite keynotes, Jesus M. Villahermosa Jr., founder of Crisis Reality Training. Jesus will make sure your company and staff are ready for workplace violence threats with his valuable guidelines and tips for incorporating technology into your plans.

An expanded Convergence Corner and Technology Showcase, where CEC technical teams showcase even more integrated technology solutions. 

And don’t miss our education sessions, which give you key information that you can bring back to your organization. Registration is still open for both events at www.btciowa.com and www.btcwisconsin.com.

We look forward to seeing you in a few weeks. 

Matt Dlouhy
