SDMMagazine and VerticalXchange announced a partnership for the 5th annual SecurityXchange event to be held July 16 to 19, 2006, in Park City, Utah. SecurityXchange is a strategic sales event developed to connect senior executives representing North America’s leading systems integrators with innovative vendors of security technology. This annual, invitation-only event brings together security decision makers for pre-planned, uninterrupted, 30-minute private meeting sessions.

“Our goal at VerticalXchange is to build high-touch, high-quality forums for buyers and sellers. We look to work with the leading media company in each of the different business categories that we address,” said Greg Geisler, CEO of VerticalXchange.

“In 2006 we are launching many new media initiatives to provide more unique and vital information for our subscribers than ever before. And we are creating more opportunities for marketers to interact with their customers. SecurityXchange is an outstanding program and in alignment with our business goals,” said Mark McCourt of BNP’s Security Media Group.

The purpose of the event is to provide time for substantive conversations with top decision makers that might normally be difficult to schedule – in a neutral environment away from the demands of the office. SecurityXchange offers unique advantages to both vendors and systems integrators. Both sides choose which companies they want to meet with prior to the event.
