  11. Inventures View of Industry • Conferencing resurgence due to reduced travel • For one reason or another - hasn’t been a more fortuitous time for IMTC visibility • IMTC member companies can all benefit from increased market awareness

  12. IMTC Focus – Next 6 mo. • DRIVE IMTC awareness/visibility via Marketing • Create white papers, business model, vertical collateral • Map & implement media & analyst education program • Map & implement conference and speaking opportunities • Dedicated marketing support to augment Marketing AG • Increase membership and member engagement • IMPROVE web site with technical content, etc. • INCREASE and MAINTAIN Liaisons with related organizations

  13. Key Focus Areas • Message Creation (“Value of Conferencing”) • Proactive PR (Make News) • Industry and .org presence (Consistency) • Horizontal/Vertical/Developer Content for Web and Other (Creation) • Member Communication (Newsletters etc.) • Member Engagement (Traction with key AGs)

  14. Messaging/Branding Issue: • IMTC needs clear, concise statements on what it is and why it is important Solution: • Develop a core messaging platform • Communicate IMTC’s Value to the industry • Communicate IMTC’s Leadership in Testing (Interoperability Testing, SuperOp!)

  15. Public Relations Issue: • Proactive vs. Reactive/Sporadic Public Relations Solution: • Create news • Issue bi-monthly press releases • Conduct private ‘market influencer’ briefings • Build awareness within other consortiums by actively pursuing speaking opportunities at their events • Deliver content through PR agency (BH)

  16. Content Issue: • IMTC needs enhanced collateral to assist in educating the market, increasing awareness, and building community Solution: • Create Collateral to demonstrate IMTC’s neutral position with related standards

  17. Website Issues: • Requires updating on a regular basis. • Content must be created as site expands and new sections are created. Solution: • Create content internally– provide a reason for repeat visits • Manage & support Developer community

  18. Member Communication Issues: • Need constant activity pings. • Need to generate IMTC Member Identity Solution: • Quarterly Newsletter, Monthly Updates • IMTC Reach - Market Managers, • IMTC Material - Plaques, Web Cross links, Logo Display, etc.

  19. Recommendation • Recognize need for positive traction next 6-9 months • Recognize leadership flux • Recognize committee volunteers are well intentioned but priority and time conflicted • Continue decision thread with Technology • 0,5 FTE for 4 – 6 mo. at Inventures to make things happen. • Cost = $7500/mo. • If no significant engagement at that time, we will discontinue effort.

  20. Summary We are committed to providing superior service to IMTC Thank You!
