Azione Holds First System Designers Conference

Azione’s March meeting puts the needs of system designers front and center, providing opportunities for peer-to-peer idea-sharing, networking, and education

Azione Unlimited is holding its inaugural System Designers Conference — part of its trio of Key Leaders initiatives for 2019 — March 13-14, at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas. Devoted solely to systems designers’ unique needs and challenges within the home technology industry, the Azione Key Leaders System Designers Conference brings together employees from 40 leading integrator companies across 18 states.

During this two-day event exclusively for Azione members, system designers will be presented with a number of educational opportunities to ultimately help them operate more efficiently, obtain growth, and be more competitive. The conference will feature several dealer presentations and solutions talks, including “What Are the Biggest Challenges of My Job?” which identifies pain points for dealers and helps them move past them to success.

Efficiency is important when you are trying to operate with limited on-staff resources, as is the case with many system integration firms, small and large. Chris Smith presents two insightful talks based on his own experiences as chief operating officer for Cloud9 Smart. “What’s Included in a Document Set?” and “Workflow: Sales to Engineering to PM” will both help systems designers streamline day-to-day business operations and workflows for greater profitability.

Azione has also curated a number of topics for roundtables and open discussions at the System Designers conference, including:

  • The Handoff from Sales to System Design
  • Project Design Software
  • Brand & Product Selection
  • Coordinating Teams with Your Designs

These talks will give Azione members the ability to work with peers to find solutions to common problems, discover industry best practices and tools, and free them up to focus on other areas of their businesses.

Azione manufacturer partners including Samsung, JL Audio, Legrand, Nortek Security & Control, Liberty AV and SurgeX are also presenting at this year’s conference as resources for Azione system designers.
