WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, January 30, 2018 — The Technology Expense Management Industry Association, TEMIA, is mobilizing for its upcoming meeting in Nashville April 2 thru 4. The theme for the meeting is: “Managing in the Age of Disruption.” In addition to exploring the areas which are likely to disrupt the market, there will also be a focus on ways to profit from disruption. Members are seeking to network and partner with emerging players to increase their profits and serve clients' needs. TEMIA members are encouraged to register for the meeting today.
Mark Hearn, TEMIA President and President of Network Control, said, “I am really excited with the agenda and new topics the board has developed for the meeting. They are designed to stimulate discussion and challenge participants. One of the focus areas at the meeting will be industry standards and creating a “Bill of Rights” for billing with the Coalition on Billing.”
David Sonenstein, TEMIA Secretary and Executive Vice President of Ezwim said, “This is a unique opportunity meet and socialize with the executives of the companies that heavily influence decisions enterprise clients make on their technology management environments. The venue provides a perfect environment to learn about other firms in the market and develop valuable business partnerships. Many firms will be interested to learn about privacy management and the complexities of upcoming EU requirements for GDPR.”
Jane Sydlowski, TEMIA At-Large Board Member and President of AMI Strategies, said, “The exchange of ideas and specific approaches to grow our business and increase profits is welcome. I am excited with many of the topics including Artificial Intelligence, automation and other areas that are changing our market.”
