Spark trade show presenter, event staff shine for Cisco Live exhibitor


May 20, 2014

San Francisco, CA–Spark owner and trade show presenter Andy Saks is helping a client smash its trade show lead record this week.

Saks is giving Plixer’s booth presentations at the Cisco Live! IT trade show, running at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California.

Saks is delivering a seven-minute scripted trade show presentation roughly twice an hour. The presentation introduces attendees to Plixer’s Scrutinizer product for IT NetFlow.

Coupled with Plixer’s coveted booth prize, an ornate, glowing “NetFlow Knights” sword, the presentation is propelling Plixer toward a new company record for trade show sales leads. Nearly all booth presentations have filled the seats and created a thick ring of attendees watching from the surrounding aisles.

Plixer also utilized a Spark trade show event staff, Tamara Barton, who is serving as booth assistant and crowd gatherer.

Cisco Live is Cisco Systems’ largest annual customer conference, held in the US, Europe, Mexico and other locations around the world.

Plixer is expected to book Saks again give its trade show presentations at next year’s Cisco Live US 2015 show, which runs from June 8-11, 2015, at the San Diego Convention Center.
