MADISON, WI, May 4, 2018 - The Gordon Flesch Company (GFC) partnered with Canon USA to host the successful 2018 Wrigley Field Technology Summit in Chicago, IL. Following on last year’s technology summit at Lambeau Field, Gordon Flesch and Canon plan to continue showcasing cutting-edge technology across the Midwest.
The 2018 summit kicked off on Tuesday, April 24 at the Brickhouse Tavern with an introduction by William Flesch, Senior Executive Vice President of the Gordon Flesch Company. Attendees then broke into groups for an hour-long tour of the Wrigley Field ballpark as well as sessions to learn more about GFC hardware, software and business solutions and cutting-edge Canon® products. Sessions included demonstrations of the newest hardware from Canon®, discussions on Managed IT Services, Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Managed Print Services (MPS).
Wrigley Field was built in 1914 and is playing host to Major League Baseball for the 104th season in 2018. The ballpark provided a magnificent backdrop for the event, which coincided with one of the first warm spring days of the year. To close the event, attendees were treated to a visit from Hall of Fame pitcher and Cubs’ legend Fergie Jenkins at the Budweiser Patio overlooking Wrigley Field.
During the session, which was sponsored by Continuum, Gordon Flesch’s Managed Services Provider (MSP) partner, Jenkins answered questions from the attendees and signed memorabilia for the audience. “We’re thrilled to be able to partner with our colleagues at Canon and Continuum to bring technology events like this to some of the great, historical venues in our region,” says William Flesch. “We remain committed to helping businesses all over the Midwest discover the latest hardware, software and business processes that can help them find efficiencies and run businesses more effectively.”
