Grapevine, Texas. Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Columbia, Missouri. Minneapolis, Minnesota. It almost takes CrescentLink’s sophisticated mapping technology to keep up with all the networking that Palmetto Engineering’s pros accomplish at trade shows throughout the country.
Where engineers go, clients, in a sense, go with them. That’s because trade-show participants bring back tools and technology that they apply to CrescentLink. At the same time, they share CrescentLink and its possibilities with their peers, along with Palmetto Engineering’s best practices and other resources.
At many of these tradeshows, networking and learning opportunities are everywhere, from demo theaters to enclosed spaces for private, spur-of-the-moment meetings to hands-on labs for exploring new software. Of course, there’s the fun stuff, too – golf outings are part of the game, because working out the world’s technical kinks requires some relaxation on the links.
Primarily, trade shows offer opportunities to meet telecom, OSP, network, and countless other sorts of engineers from all 50 states and from dozens of countries. Shared expertise leads to shared solutions, and shared solutions benefit everyone from global corporations to smaller companies to individual clients and, ultimately, to each and every person on any and every network.
At the same time, Palmetto Engineering’s participation in trade shows also gives other managers, experts and influential decision-makers throughout the industry a look at why CrescentLink offers the best available network-mapping solutions.
Perhaps most important, trade shows offer what technology often doesn’t: relationships. While people are more connected than ever before -- thanks to fiber-optic cables and other such hardware -- it’s when professionals gather face-to-face that critical intellectual and social mass builds. And those kind of relationship-building opportunities help keep CrescentLink on the cutting edge of work that leads to a smarter, healthier, and safer world.
The fact is, collaboration leads to innovation, innovation to progress and progress to solutions for one and for all, and trade shows and other such networking environments and opportunities spur, nurture, and insist on collaboration. After all, CrescentLink is built on collaboration that starts in-house, with PEC engineers, the professionals who then carry their team efforts to peer groups everywhere.
In a word, then, when one thinks of a “trade show,” in the case of CrescentLink, the show itself isn’t about being in the trade – that is, in an industry of highly trained, highly specialized people -- but rather about those committed professionals getting the opportunity to trade expertise and experience.
