It's Saturday – pre-summit and the staff at IAOP has been super busy preparing for the event. The JW Marriott Desert Ridge Phoenix is fantastic – couldn't have asked for a better location. We're looking forward to having everyone here soon, so get ready...we have lots in store for you!
The Summit program includes one hundred speakers and more than 50 educational sessions, including the new Wednesday “Fun, Fast and Focused” programming; 15-minute mini-sessions that are informative, inspiring, profound and provocative.
We have some great special events planned for this year's summit:
Are you here all day on Sunday? Well, keep on reading...
New for Sunday the IAOP Publishers Cup – you'll be mixing it up on the green with colleagues, clients and fellow outsourcing professionals for a round. Not a golfer? Check out our “Getting to Know You” Networking Event – join us by the pool on Sunday for an informal meet and greet. Later Sunday evening, our Champagne Welcome is sure to entice – come down to the registration desk, pick up your materials and raise a glass to another year! New this year we have the Global Services Mall Sneak Peak – in addition to fun and informative networking receptions on Monday and Tuesday evenings, you’ll have an additional chance to check out the exhibit hall on Sunday evening following the champagne welcome.
Once the summit begins, we'll have many refreshment breaks...be sure to stay hydrated here, it will keep you energized for 3 action-packed days:
-> Two Global Services Mall Receptions: Join the conversation - meet potential partners
-> Customer-Only or Provider/Advisor-Only Networking: Identify delegates like you and share how you turned challenges into successes.
-> A Taste of Nova Scotia: Your hosts, Nova Scotia Business Inc., invite you to share in some fine wine and savories from their neck of the woods.
-> Awards Luncheon: See who’s next to be inducted into The Outsourcing Hall of Fame, who will receive IAOP’s GEO Awards and celebrate IAOP’s Member of the Year.
-> By Popular Demand! New Advanced Track: Advanced sessions in every round led by IAOP’s Certified Outsourcing Professionals (COPs)!
Year after year, The Outsourcing World Summit brings the global community of outsourcing professionals together for an unparalleled knowledge sharing, networking and personal and business development experience you can count on. The 2013 Outsourcing World Summit will continue this tradition of excellence.
See you soon!!
