Convergence is Here, Now!

Super9 sounds like some catchy super hero group, but it is much more! Super9 was a big idea that came from the partners that we work with every day.  Super9 started with a group of nine super heroes that were determined to be the best at providing supplier agnostic services to their customers.  Through an intensive, three-day, hands-on education session, these partners learned how to essentially do more with less, and dive deeper into their customer’s seen and unforeseen business problems. The success that this group had grew into over 200 more of these super heroes, consisting of VARs and telecom agents completing these sessions in 2017.  Fast forward to 2018, and another big idea was born.  What if we brought all of these super heroes together at one event to network and add more tools into their tool belt?

Super9 Convergence was held in March in New Orleans, right in the heart of the French Quarter.  We did the unthinkable, bringing agents, VARs, suppliers and vendors together for one event.  We kicked the event off with networking on the rooftop of the Roosevelt Hotel and ended with a party at Brennan’s where the famous Bananas Foster was born.  You will need to attend a Super9 to get an idea of all that happened in between, but here are a few numbers:

Super9 attendees:

  • Increased their MRR by 119%
  • Had 50% growth in new Cloud Revenue
  • Have generated $90.4 Million in contract value since attending

Super9 Convergence in New Orleans:

  • 216 VARs/Agents attended
  • 383 Total Attendees

We encourage you to start adding additional revenue streams to your business.  Did I mention that we ended the Super9 Convergence event with a police barricaded parade, with a brass band down the streets of the French Quarter? That was epic, but your chance to join us for the next Super9 Convergence will be here before you know it.  Join us in Nashville, TN March 10-13th for the 2019 Super9 Convergence event.  If you would like more information on the event and/or how to start adding additional revenue streams in your business, please reach out to convergence@scansource.com.
