This year’s Sleeter Conference was a special one for BQE Software. Not only did we win the Awesome App Award for the fifth time (click here for the press release), but we also sponsored the Grand Prize Passport which included an all-expense paid trip to Solutions15 next year and a one year free subscription to BillQuick. Our CEO and Founder, Shafat Qazi, picked the lucky winner and presented the award to him. But before the drawing, Shafat had a chance to speak about his company’s humble beginnings and how his strategic partnership with Doug Sleeter has helped BQE grow and prosper over the last 11 years, since the inception of the conference. You can watch his tribute to The Sleeter Group below:
Meanwhile, in the exhibit hall, you could spot the BQE BillQuick booth a mile away! Every corner you turned, you couldn’t miss our bright orange booth with flashy red carpet. Our staff was wearing bright orange T-shirts with the words “I’m here to _____” written on the front:
I cleverly wrote I’m here to “make you smile” and Ikhlaq Bhat, our Marketing Manager, wrote he’s here to “give away cash”. In fact, BQE Software gave away lots of cash, almost $1,500, to people wearing our customizable orange T-shirts. All they had to do was tell us why they’re here at the conference and we would write their message on the back of their shirt. This one was our favorite:
Then, they had to wear their T-shirt on the spot and walk around the convention for the remainder of the day. Here’s a few of our winners with their $50 prize:
Attendees wearing our orange T-shirts could also win our raffle’s grand prize: a brand new iPhone 6! They had to drop off their business card and be present during the drawing wearing their T-shirt in order to win the prize. Our lucky winner, Stacey Byrne, was very surprised when her card was pulled out of the box. Here’s a picture of our happy winner, Stacey with our CEO, Shafat:
Thank you to everyone for stopping by our booth and to all the organizers and speakers for making Solutions14 a very fun and rewarding experience. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year’s conference!
