If you have a product that dove tails nicely into what MSP’s do to support their clients and would like to be introduced to potential customers, then supporting the maturity of their business is a great way to do it. You will be noted as the sponsor of the session and have an opportunity to include a slide which will be shown a few minutes into the session when the audience is maximized.
