2017 marks the 20th year of SUMMIT. SUMMIT has come a long way since the early years when 10 people gathered in Vail, Colorado to hone their software skills and help shape future generations of software.
After all these years, the premise of SUMMIT is still the same… great training, great content and great discussions with the goal to help your organization navigate industry trends and achieve optimal efficiency through technology.
For those of you new to ZOLL, SUMMIT is held annually to bring together users and prospective users of ZOLL products, especially those focused on data. The SUMMIT agenda includes more than 150 separate education sessions conducted by subject matter experts, industry thought leaders and software power users. The purpose is to provide the inspiration, education and connections you need to transform your business or operation.
This May, ZOLL will host hundreds of fire and EMS professionals from all over the globe. Through inspiring keynotes, innovative talks, educational breakouts, hands-on training and tons of networking, you will learn how the SUMMIT experience, and especially our content, is truly remarkable.
Here are the top 6 reasons why you MUST come to SUMMIT in May
1. It's the 20TH Anniversary
With 2017 being the platinum anniversary of SUMMIT, we are shaking things up quite a bit! You are going to learn more, connect more and have more fun. We will do this through fresh content focused on current industry trends; more product training opportunities; facilitated networking opportunities; and exciting new evening events.
2. You'll Learn from Industry Leaders
There are very few conferences that focus predominantly on the latest issues that face Fire/EMS as well as the tools and technologies powering operational efficiency today. The knowledge and experience you will gain from this event will be hard to replicate elsewhere.3. Master Your Solutions
With product training for beginners or for advanced users, you can improve your product aptitude. If the trainings aren’t for you, schedule some time to discuss your unique challenges at the ZOLL Support Bar.
4. Networking Opportunities
We all think that our issues are completely unique. The truth is that there is a high probability that someone else is having that same issue, or better yet, had that same issue and found a solution. Create a list of your most pressing issues and then use our many networking opportunities to meet others who share your concerns.
We want you to make the most of the conference and own the experience. Contacts are there to be made, built and sustained. Make sure your boss knows you are going to spend time at the conference learning, networking and meeting people.
5. Reconnect with ZOLL
At ZOLL, we view SUMMIT much like a family reunion. Although we see or hear from many of our customers throughout the year, we cherish the time we get to spend with you at SUMMIT. SUMMIT is an opportunity to exchange ideas and concerns with ZOLL staff and strengthen our partnership.
6. Denver in May
While the weather can be pretty unpredictable in May, you are guaranteed to see some snowcapped mountains in the distance. I strongly suggest extending your stay through the weekend and visiting some of the many nearby attractions that only Colorado can provide. Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking:
- Check out the wildlife at Estes Park
- Visit the Stanley Hotel (inspiration for the Overlook Hotel in the movie The Shining)
- Take in the beauty at Garden of the Gods
- Visit the Red Rocks Amphitheatre (one of the best amphitheaters in the county)
- Hike one of the many 14ers
If you have never been to SUMMIT, you must come see what all the fuss is about. If you have been to several SUMMIT’s, and are thinking about sitting this one out, DON’T! Trust me, this is one you won’t want to miss!
