ASCII Group Success Summit Heads Northeast

New Jersey was the latest stop in The ASCII Group’s MSP Success Summit 2022 series of educational and networking events for MSPs and IT business owners.

The ASCII MSP Success Summit 2022 series of business-building events touched down in Parsippany-Troy Hills, N.J., on September 28-29, where MSPs and IT business owners were hosted for two days of education and networking at the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel. Sessions featured MSP-led content from both ASCII members and industry thought leaders.

New Jersey was the seventh stop on the multi-city tour planned this year by The ASCII Group, a membership-based community of independent North American MSPs, MSSPs, and solution providers.

Day one of the conference started with an ASCII members meeting (pictured). The day also included presentations from Mark Wiener, president of BizCom Global, who discussed “How To Garner Larger Clients Without Managing Endpoints”; and Bradley Gross, Esq., on “Where MSPs Are at Risk When It Comes to Their MSA Agreements.” A thought leadership panel session addressed what top MSP performers are doing differently to build sales.

On the main day, ASCII member Stanley Louissaint presented, “How One MSP Hit $1M as a Solo IT Entrepreneur”; and Bradley Gross delivered part two of his legal review of MSA agreements.

Attendees also heard vendor presentations on billing, security, cyber resilience, zero trust, VoIP, and cyber insurance, and browsed the expo hall.
