What is the iQmetrix Meetup?
The iQmetrix Meetup is a 3-day conference for wireless and specialty retailers who want to learn from their peers, harness their true revenue potential and make meaningful and lasting connections with the industry's brightest minds.
The event brings together like-minded folks who share a passion for revolutionizing retail and constantly strive for great customer experiences.
With such a massive event coming and going, it's easy to get overwhelmed. That's why we put together this handy guide to help you get the most out of your experience!
What to Expect?
With over 20 booths in the vendor showcase and close to 300 attendees, you can expect to find anything you want or any person you want in the industry.
Find new products and services to introduce to your stores, attend highly-anticipated learning sessions with respected speakers and network with peers. Just be sure to take it all in at the beautiful Gaylord Rockies Hotel & Convention Center.
On our side, we will be hosting a panel on best practices around customer outreach, as well as hosting the Wednesday Night Party - a 90s themed tribute to iQmetrix's 20th anniversary. More on both of these sessions below.

Must-See Booths at the Vendor Showcase
This is the time vendors go all out with eye-catching booths. Don't miss out on the latest merchandise from industry staples like Otterbox, Jabra, and the fan-favorite Popsockets.
It's not all about the merchandise though. Your experience isn't complete without interacting with a few technology vendors. We'll be exhibiting throughout the three days, so be sure to book us in for a meeting before it's too late.

Keep it Light: Unwind with These Four Activities

A Final Word on iQmetrix Meetup
The best thing about attending the Meetup is the learning opportunities. Chances are you'll hear something you haven't heard before and you might meet someone new.
Nevertheless, while conferences are fun, they involve some hard work. Be sure to have clear goals in mind for your team before you show up. If you are making purchase decisions, make a list of vendors you need to meet. If you are looking at new technology, book a demo with them ahead of time to get a personalized experience.
See you there!
