Nothing's a better catalyst for change than having leading, like-minded industry leaders together to drive disruption across asset finance and purchase."
Sandhills Publishing is the CEMC 2018 Official Sponsor. "Since joining the event last year, it has been exciting to forge relationships with other members of the community and work hand-in-hand to affect meaningful change in the asset purchase and finance industry," said Shawn Peed, COO at Sandhills Publishing.
As in previous events, discussions will be kept private to encourage the free exchange of ideas among participants. The Innovation Summit is a unique opportunity to reach an exclusive group of leaders and disruptors who will inspire each other to rethink and innovate their business practices.
Summit participants will stay at the Ritz Carlton over the duration of the event and will participate in a series of discussions, presentations, Q&A sessions as well as casual networking opportunities.
