New Way Air Bearings - Motion Control Event
"In participating in the GlobalSpec Motion Control Online Conference and Tradeshow our primary objectives were to create brand awareness and provide education to the attendees. "
"We achieved our objectives. Participating enabled us to hone our message and it also gave us a new tool (a professional video recording of our presentation) for use on our Web site after the live event. We were able to educate hundreds of people who attended our educational session, and it enabled us to interact directly with a number of people in the Group Chat within the Knowledge Exchange. We were also given additional exposure in GlobalSpec’s pre- event marketing materials."
"My team was very impressed with the established program, the processes used, and the professionalism of the GlobalSpec team. We are looking forward to participating in more GlobalSpec e-Events."

"The wide audience in a virtual environment makes it a very economical and efficient opportunity to educate the industry on technological advances. This is why I decided to participate in GlobalSpec’s Motion Control e-Event."
"The process of participating as a speaker was surprisingly simple and organized. The end product was very professional as well. No “in-person” event has ever been this organized and made the process this simple in my experience. I would absolutely participate in another GlobalSpec e-event."

Atlas Copco - Fluid Power Event
"Atlas Copco decided to participate in GlobalSpec’s Fluid Power Event because it was clear that this would be a good opportunity to reach a larger audience with our message about energy recovery.

Oregon State University - Sensors & Switches Event
"I've done many traditional webinars in my career but GlobalSpec takes their events to a higher level and this was the best produced event I have been involved in. The process was simple, and the GlobalSpec team was well organized. It was fun to prepare and easy to execute with the GlobalSpec team – I felt my efforts were used efficiently. The time invested was more than justified by the number of participants from the event and I would certainly consider further participation if an appropriate opportunity arose."

"One of the major benefits of speaking at the Machine Tools & Metal Working Event was that we did not have to travel to America to reach GlobalSpec’s audience. We were able to use the camera from our office, making it easy and efficient."

Kevin King, Manufacturing Technology Director
National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA)
National Instruments - Industrial Automation Event
"National Instruments made a decision to participate in GlobalSpec's Industrial Automation event, due in part, to the promotional plan for the event. We were impressed with the promotion plan and felt it would be worth our time to participate in the educational conference portion of the online event, along with participating as an exhibitor and Knowledge Exchange sponsor."
"Our goal for participating was to create a greater awareness of our company in the application area of autonomous robotics and to also generate new leads and interact with customers during the live day event."
"The process for participating as a speaker was very easy - organized, many options for recording the presentation and flexibility on when/how to log on during the live day event. GlobalSpec's process was much more flexible than others. We had some valuable interactions with new customers, the effort was minimal with a big impact!"
Shelly Gretlein, Senior Group Manager
Rockwell Automation - Industrial Automation Event
"We were aware of GlobalSpec's online conference and trade show events prior to participating as a speaker in the conference portion of the Industrial Automation event."
"Our decision to participate in the educational program was due to the fact that we believe the development of digital marketing methods and the use of virtual technology are a critical component to meeting the needs of our existing and potential customers."
"Our goal was to educate our target audience about emerging trends and the use of new products and solutions to meet those trends."
"It was easy to participate, but I think that the challenges and successes associated with virtual communication methods, such as these, are quite different from face-to- face opportunities. It is important to sharpen communications focused on these methods to ensure success. Participating in another GlobalSpec online event is something Rockwell would definitely consider."
Dan Hornbeck, Market Development Manager, Safety
SEW Eurodrive - Industrial Automation Event
"We made our decision to have SEW Eurodrive participate in GlobalSpec's Industrial Automation event based upon our interest in using a new and different vehicle to communicate to our customers. GlobalSpec's audience is our target audience so it made sense."
"GlobalSpec provided great direction and schedules for the video production process which made participation easy and convenient. Taping the presentation was simple and it provided us with the opportunity to reach our audience with a very high quality presentation, rather than via a traditional presentation. We have used this presentation since the Event, as we have a copy of the video presentation, and have received excellent feedback from our customers."
Matt Murray, Corporate Trainer
OPC Foundation - Industrial Automation Event
"The value proposition for participating as a speaker in a GlobalSpec event includes the opportunity to increase awareness about your respective topic and corresponding content to a highly distributed and targeted audience, gaining additional breadth outside of one's normal domain. I often receive inquiries from professionals asking about OPC and what it is, and I viewed this as a great opportunity to educate the marketplace about OPC and it's benefits and to penetrate a different industry than we have traditionally targeted."
"I have always been very interested in partnerships and collaborations with various organizations and companies. We measure success by the level of audience participation and interaction. I decided to participate in this event because of the way the venue was structured - it allowed the opportunity for event attendees to ask questions during the presentation and again in the Knowledge Exchange where I spent time networking and chatting with event attendees following my presentation."
"The process for participation was very straightforward and GlobalSpec provided direction and timelines for every step of the process, making it easy to participate. The GlobalSpec Events Team was very patient and worked closely with all the speakers to ensure that the educational session was well choreographed."
Thomas Burke, President and Executive Director
Marine Current Turbines, Ltd. - Alternative & Renewable Energy Event
"Our decision to participate in GlobalSpec's Alternative & Renewable Energy Event was made in an effort to raise the profile of Marine Current Turbines, Ltd. in the U.S. This speaking engagement looked to be an excellent opportunity due to the audience that GlobalSpec would bring to the table for the event itself."
"GlobalSpec guided me very well through the preparation process for the presentation. Although I regularly give power point presentations, this was the first time I tried one using a video camera. With the great direction and support that was provided, this proved to be a reasonable and easy process. It was a good learning experience which will be useful for future presentations."
Peter Fraenkel, Technical Director
Marine Current Turbines, Ltd.
ZigBee Alliance - Electronic Product Design Event
"This was a new and very interesting way for me to conduct a webinar. Having the opportunity to pre-record the presentation at my convenience, allowed me to focus more of my thoughts and energy on the message I wanted to deliver. In a traditional webinar the presentation is usually delivered live and it's a little more stressful."
"The GlobalSpec Events Team provided a very high degree of flexibility, adjusting to my ever changing schedule. I appreciated the process of recording, reviewing, and conducting the webinar on my time schedule."
"After the actual event presentation on the Live Day event, I participated in the Knowledge Exchange where the amount and free form of discussion taking place with event attendees, provided me the ability and appropriate time to focus on answering additional questions from my educational session audience and other event attendees. It was a valuable experience."
Benno Ritter, Vice President
