By TechLeaders Conference
January 9, 2013 – Irving, Texas – TechLeaders, the annual broker-dealer technology conference, will take place this year on March 13-15 at The Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas, and registration has opened. Executives from independent and regional broker-dealers will gather to explore the latest developments, innovations and products related to operations and technology.
Key areas of discussion at the 2013 event will include technology solutions critical for the growth of broker-dealer businesses, namely customer relationship management (CRM), account opening and the creation of ‘dynamic’ workstations. Leading up to the conference, TechLeaders executives and participants will drive insightful dialogue around top broker-dealer technology issues through a podcast series, a LinkedIn discussion group, and technology trend surveys.
“The TechLeaders Conference brings together broker-dealers and technology providers to tackle the industry’s top operational issues and ensure that technology continues to evolve in direct response to client’s needs,” said Chip Kispert, Editorial Director of TechLeaders. “With a strong list of sponsors and attendees already in place, we expect the 2013 conference to be fruitful for the industry.”
In addition to leading the conversation on the latest innovations in broker-dealer technology, the 2013 TechLeaders Conference has received the support of industry heavyweights and sponsors such as LaserApp, Redtail Technology, and Salespage. AdvisorOne has been confirmed as lead media sponsor for the conference.
Doreen Griffiths, Chief Information Officer of Securities America and member of the 2013 TechLeaders Advisory Board commented, "Broker-dealers and technology providers value TechLeaders because it offers us the opportunity to share ideas and insight on the most pressing issues. This emphasis on dialogue and participation is invaluable; most conferences don't offer these opportunities."
TechLeaders, the annual broker-dealer technology conference — unlike any other event—has an agenda dedicated only to presenting the technology solutions that best serve the needs of the financial services community — Broker/Dealers, in particular. The conference is designed to give attendees and sponsors exposure to the technology vendors who are solving the problems that Broker/Dealers and their Representatives are facing every day. The TechLeaders event, held annually, will be supported by discussion groups, online user forums, and direct access to the technology vendors creating new solutions — to create a dialog through which new products can evolve in direct response to user need.
