"Brainworks Software felt there was only one way to introduce our newest and latest media industry specific product, Stratica Advertising & CRM, and that was at the Mega-Conference in Las Vegas in 2019. The Mega-Conference attracts the high level executives that we wanted to showcase our company and latest product to, so it was a no-brainer to be a proud sponsor. The customer service provided by the event organizers is and always has been top notch. You can tell they really care about their sponsors by their professionalism, quickness to respond and strategic guidance leading up and during the event. The continuous success of the Mega-Conference is a direct reflection of the event organizers' constant drive and desire to see their sponsors succeed. We are looking forward to being a proud sponsor in Fort Worth in 2020!"
