Key to the success of this Summit is our Business Partner sponsors showing clients your solutions to help them solve their most critical business problems. We continue to adapt our Solution Centre offerings, based on your feedback, to make this event the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your products and solutions.

Our attendees value the interaction, strategy, and hands-on learning that our session tracks, Business Partners, and interaction with IBM subject matter experts bring. They choose to attend in order to find innovative ways to extend their investments in our products and solutions and to understand how the IBM ecosystem of products, Business Partner solutions, and peer-to-peer best practices can improve their business. It is this dynamic and personal interaction that makes the IBM Smarter Commerce Global Summit 2013 a must-attend event for our customers and prospects and we believe there is a distinct advantage for Business Partners who have a presence.
