It's hard to believe Navigate 2015 is right around the corner when it seems like just yesterday, we were all walking along the pavilion of flags to the Seaport or catching baseballs from President & CEO of the Boston Red Sox, Larry Lucchino. Well, you can mark the 2015 calendar you probably received as a gift this Holiday season because Navigate 2015 is officially open for registration! And that's not all - keep reading to find out how you can save a pretty bitcoin, roughly 200 of them.
Haven't signed up yet? Here are 6 reasons to jet off with us this September...
1. Vivaaaaa Las Vegas!

That's right! This year, we're blasting off to Las Vegas, Nevada. The city popularized by The King himself, Elvis Presley, provides the perfect backdrop for our three-day user conference. With countless shows and concerts and a string of world-famous restaurants conveniently located just minutes away, Navigate 2015 will be even more "edutaining" than its predecessor! Are you a fan of the Food Network and popular TV chef personalities? Eat at Gordon Ramsay Steak or Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar! Follow your meal with an evening of laughter at The Riviera Comedy Club or see the Broadway hit musical, Jersey Boys! These things to do coupled with the actionable lessons you'll learn will have you raving about your stay long after you leave. If the connections you made and followed up with at Navigate 2014 are any indication, what happens in Vegas, won't stay in Vegas!
2. The Cosmopolitan
Did I mention Navigate 2015's right in the heart of the Las Vegas strip? You'll be staying at luxury resort and casino, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas! You certainly won't be heartbroken at this hotel. With 13 restaurants boasting world-class chefs, 12 boutiques to spend your Blackjack winnings at, and 3 different pools to dive into, it's no surprise The Cosmopolitan was named one of the "500 best hotels in the world" by Travel + Leisure.
Our marketing team recently toured the spacious and space-like venue. Even Sr. Marketing Programs Manager, Mike Barnes, couldn't help but admire the hotel view!
3. More Stellar Sessions
If you thought the breakout sessions at our inaugural user conference were good, just wait until Navigate 2015! With over 40 out-of-this-world educational sessions covering topics such as business strategy & economic models, sales & marketing, and industry trends, you'll walk away with the tools and tips you'll need to grow your profit margins faster than the speed of light. Houston, you may have a problem, but we're here to help solve it!
4. Partner Pavilion Showcase Opportunity
Want to establish yourself as a thought leader in the managed IT services industry? Think other MSPs could benefit from the lessons you've learned over the years? Showcase at Navigate 2015!

5. Robin Robins Keynote
There's a reason countless MSPs turn to Robin Robins, as the industry's most sought after marketing and sales trainer. Why? Because she understands the conditions and constraints of the managed IT services world. As developer and author of the Technology Marketing Toolkit, Robin specializes in helping VARs, system integrators, MSPs, solution providers and IT consulting firms build marketing programs that generate more qualified leads, thus growing their business and adding new revenue streams. I bet I can guess your main marketing deterrant - lack of time.

Ok, so that might be a bit much, but remember how much fun you had this year at our conference in Boston? Maybe you missed the keynote addresses your peers were buzzing about afterwards or weren't able to network with other MSP business owners facing the same market challenges aboard the Autotask-sponsored harbor cruise. Now's your chance to catch up! Not that this is a space race or anything. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. What words come to mind with this Navigate 2014 Facebook photo album?
So there you have it! Not that these six reasons even scratch the surface of the benefits you'll get when you register for Navigate 2015, but I hope you're excited for what's to come! Stay tuned for more updates, but until then....see you in Vegas, baby!
Remember: the early bird gets the worm. Register before January 31st and get our early bird, discounted ticket price. $600 down to a $399 cost of admission. It's a no brainer, right?
