Reinforce Education With Digital Transformation

The Vertical is a series of events that showcase industry-specific digital solutions. This particular event is designed to bring your solutions to the right people within the right organizations in the Ed-tech industry.

Speaker List

The Challenges

New solutions tend to face resistance from the market. Selling into industry takes up a lot of time and effort. We find that the three main challenges faced by organisations in the Ed-tech space revolve around standing out to attract the attention of prospective customers, getting the message to a broad enough range of target customers and influencing decision makers in client organisations without prior referrals who they trust.

What the Vertical Can Help You Achieve

The Vertical, by design, is a series of industry-specific events that bring innovative solutions using cutting-edge technology to the decision-makers of businesses. It targets Tech vendors, ISVs, start-ups and, specifically, C-suite and decision makers who represent organisations of industry vertical.

Be in the Room Where it Happens!

Engage with the key decision makers of organizations in the specific industry. The Vertical is a strictly invitation-only event composed of handpicked attendees and highly influential stakeholders.
