What our attendees are saying about VISTAS

What an amazing event! I was incredibly impressed by the demos and the people...learned a lot and came away with many ideas for future projects.​

Great evening events! Great content in the sessions and great presenters as well! Loved downtown Chicago!

The smaller meet the expert appointments cleared up so many questions and gave us the sense that we really mattered to the Vistex staff.

Great presentations (both Vistex and clients), nice venue, excellent food and location, fun networking events!

Networking with the rest of the colleagues from different businesses allows (for great) interacting about the benefits of Vistex platforms.

Assortment of customer sessions, access to Vistex information, good networking and social events. Vistex staff is terrific. Well paced agenda. I appreciated that evening events were close to the hotel.

Very organized session schedule with enough time between sessions. Just top notch!

VISTAS is halfway over, and I’ve already learned much from this great company and its customers. I’m happy that my presentation on the impact of ease of doing business resonated with the channel folks attending. Thank you Vistex for having 2112 and I participate.

All party, no commitment! Wedding Banned is a cover band formed in Gas City Indiana. After being dubbed, “too wild and crazy,” by their hometown, the Banned hit the road looking for gigs. Their first break came when they landed a Thursday night gig at The Cubby Bear in Chicago, Il. Word spread and that performance turned into a seven month long run. Wedding Banned filled Cubby Bear with people who wanted to see their unique performance that combines music, audience interaction and comedy. The band relocated to Chicago.

Keynotes

Sanjay Shah's VISTAS 2020 Keynote

Sanjay Shah

Vistex Founder, CEO, and Chief Architect

When: Wednesday, October 2

Time: 9:00am-10:30am

The pace of business is relentless. With so much hype and noise it can seem endless, making results often elusive. And in the face of constant demand for measurable outcomes, perspectives are often siloed. To cut through it all, to keep our worldview fresh and relevant, you cannot afford to lose sight of the big picture. Anyone who falls back on the tried and tested, sticking with dogmatisms in a fast-changing world, is asking for trouble. In his keynote, Sanjay will provide crisp commentary on how to view progress through a wider lens. Get the inside track into the thinking that shapes Vistex’s portfolio; and a vantage point on how our solutions can help take your business further – and faster.

Scott Bloom VISTAS 2020 Keynote

Scott Bloom

Corporate Entertainer

When: Thursday, October 3

Time: 9:30am-10:30am

Scott provides an insightful, interactive, laughter-packed experience that energizes and transforms. What makes Scott so successful is his ability to connect with audiences by speaking their language.
