Vendor FAQs

There really is no comparison. The most important difference is who you are able to connect with. We believe quality takes precedence over quantity. We target, pre-qualify, and deliver your direct C-level or equivalent decision making audience, who shape the buying trends of today and tomorrow. Also, unlike the typical expo-type trade shows, RTSS delivers a highly-structured, intimate environment conducive to conducting business with your target audience. You are provided with the format and tools needed to identify, meet with and present your products and services to VARs in a variety of settings:  one-on-one meetings, group boardroom presentations, educational settings, and an endless variety of networking and social activities. Thus, your connections with prospects will prove more productive, and your exchanges with peers more enlightening, equaling personal satisfaction for time well spent.
The mission of RTSS is to foster focused and productive interaction between vendors and VIP hosted-guest value added resellers. Our number one priority is to provide YOU the means to achieve productive connections with our value added reseller audience. The Boardroom Vendor Presentations enable vendors to meet with and discuss their product(s), service(s), and solutions to select groups of VARs. Highly interactive and carefully focused, these meetings enable vendors to connect with top executive prospects about their products and services while exchanging valuable insights and strategies. Our boardroom scheduling and allocation processes assure an optimal match of vendors and VARs based on needs and business objectives. The Summit Solution Showcase enables vendors and hosted-guest value added resellers the perfect means to follow-up on boardroom presentations. Additionally, Executive Premier Presentations and a dynamic series of networking events, are designed to reinforce and solidify interaction between all RTSS participants. Our commitment to vendor satisfaction and success is ensured by an unparalleled level of customized service and personal attention. We make every effort to accommodate your particular needs and special requests.
At RTSS, you as a vendor are able to make scores of successful face-to-face sales calls during an intense, highly concentrated two and a half day period. Sales calls far more substantive and much more targeted than those found at typical events. RTSS represent an incredible consolidation of marketing expenditures, sales calls, travel time, and expense vouchers.
That is one of the most exciting aspects of RTSS. Every activity - Boardroom Vendor Presentations, Summit Solutions Showcase, Executive Premier Presentations, networking opportunities, and more - levels the playing field by providing each vendor, regardless of size, with access to the same audience. The smallest start-up company has the same opportunity, as the industry giants, to see and sell to the same attending hosted guest VAR audience.
Your opportunities are virtually endless - before, during and after the Summit. If you opt to sponsor an Executive Premier Breakfast Presentation, you are able to deliver your message to every attending Executive at one time. At your Summit Solution Showcase booth, you can introduce and discuss your products and solutions at length, face-to-face. And as a participating summit vendor, your company is eligible to work with the summit marketing staff on customized opportunities for reaching and engaging the attending VAR audience enhancing your company's opportunity for success. Of course, as a Sponsor, you will benefit from inclusion in all marketing materials, website content, signage, and Summit directory materials.
Companies of all sizes and types have recognized the potential advantages of RTSS as the premier business development event for the Retail Technology Industry. The unique opportunity RTSS provides to establish customer relationships, recruit partners, educate/ train, and gain valuable feedback is incomparable. As participating vendors have realized, a boardroom-based event spells success for small and medium companies, as well as the top Industry leaders.
