In 2006 Toby Harris launched Quartz Events and set out to develop a conference format that dramatically enhances overall experiences for both attendees and exhibitors. To do this Toby called upon his diverse experience from his years running large scale trade show and trade publication companies. Following the launch of the first supply chain & logistics conference “SCOPE” in 2007 Quartz Events has matured into one of North America’s leading conference producers. Quartz Events now runs a successful portfolio of executive level conferences and summits that focus on technology driven industry sectors. The success of the SCOPE series saw a natural progression into the IT sector were Quartz now have two collocated events “CIO Visions” and “MIDTECH” with a specific focus on cloud, business intelligence and the mid-market. The portfolio and offerings continued to develop into 2012 and 2013 with the launches of the oil and gas summit “UpTech” and the manufacturing summit “IMPACT” respectively. Quartz Events continue to improve the quality and format of the summits by investing in key areas. Improving the events in this responsible way continues to attract larger numbers of senior-level delegates and world-class sponsors to the conferences. Quartz Events maintains a high energy and entrepreneurial work environment that continually fosters the guiding principal of delivering above and beyond customer expectations. This core company value is key to the continued success and creates first class educational experiences and meaningful business connections at each and every event.
