Fresh from representing Corvil at FIA Chicago, I’m eager to share some insights as a newbie on the trade show circuit. I was in awe of the variance of products exhibited and the number of visitors who came to the show – from vendors and buyers to recruiters and job seekers – basically anyone and everyone involved with the futures or derivatives business was in attendance.
While the crowd was wide-ranging in its expertise, including both techies and non-techies, everyone there held a role that was absolutely necessary to running a business, and expertly elaborated on their positions in various presentations. This underlying theme of the conference goes hand in hand with Corvil’s core message: bridging the gap between business and IT. At our booth, we presented demos of our product solutions to demonstrate how we can deliver on that message, giving visibility to both business and IT in different and relevant ways.
It was gratifying to witness attendees’ astonished reactions during their first introduction to Corvil, and watch their eyes light up as we dove deeper into Corvil’s functionalities. Many had never seen functionalities like ours before, and immediately understood the practical applications of the product. The Corvil crew on the ground – Doug, Jerry, Mike, Aoife, Scott, and I – helped walk attendees through the demos, and particularly enjoyed meeting attendees who were interested in exploring partnerships with Corvil. If you didn’t get our contact info at the event, feel free to contact me here.
Throughout the event, it quickly became apparent that many attendees were searching for opportunities to keep up with technology innovations, and find banking and risk management solutions. I am confident that Corvil is a special product that can help specialized business now.
