Time flies and I can’t believe it has been nearly 2 years since Method made its first appearance in Las Vegas for the Sleeter Conference. This week, the Method team returned to Las Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino for the AICPA Tech+ Conference.
What a completely different feeling it was this time around when answering a very simple question, “So what do you do?”, by visitors at our booth. I can only laugh about it now, but if you speak with anyone who visited our booth in 2007, they would have to agree. Our response to their question back then was “We can be anything you want it to be”. Boy was that the wrong answer.
This time we had a clear message and product vision – “We provide a suite of customizable web-apps that integrate with QuickBooks”. Now why couldn’t we think of that before?
Greg LaFollette, who wrote an article on Method in January 2008 just after the Sleeter Conference, asked me to join him for a vendor showcase with 5 other vendors he selected. My goal was to present Method to CPA firms and show the audience why Greg thought this was something worth taking a look at. Packing everything Method can do into 11 minutes is hard to do, but it was plenty to get interest going. This spurred some serious excitement and traffic at our booth that lasted right through to Wednesday morning.
Now that we are back from Las Vegas, I am looking forward to spending some time here in Toronto until our next show in August at the 2009 Midwest Accounting & Finance Showcase in Chicago.
I've included some pictures from our visit to Vegas below
Las Vegas – see you next year!
