"Attending Gartner Symposium is vital to networking with our clients and other companies, as well as analysts and innovators across many industries," said Valerie Belli, vice president, Business Services Division, Canon Solutions America.

In addition to attending Symposium events, educational seminars, and manning the booth at ITxpo, Canon attendees also hosted a "Green Screen Photo Experience".

Then, by visiting the Canon booth on the ITxpo floor, they could choose their own background image and print the file right in the booth. Green Screen participants were then entered for a chance to win their own Canon Digital SLR camera.

Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014 provided attendees with a unique, in-depth view of the digital technology industry. Along with showcasing the latest cutting-edge products, the symposium also consisted of comprehensive analyst discussions regarding the impact these innovations will have on technology providers and the community, as well as the future of digital business and information technology.
