The ASCII Group, a membership-based community of independent North American MSPs, VARs, and solution providers, has announced new event cities, conference content, and keynote speaker for its 2018 IT SMB Success Summit Series. The summits will heavily emphasize professional development for the attendees, leaving extended time for discussion of business challenges.

The summits bring together over 1,400 IT solution providers and dozens of technology vendors in a two-day format that includes extensive networking, education and training. With events in nine markets across North America, The ASCII Group continues its mission of 33 years to help IT business owners grow and thrive.
