Simplex-IT at BizConCLE 2018

Wrapping up October's seemingly back-to-back event craziness, we exhibited at BizConCLE last week. This was our first time at BizCon and we certainly enjoyed ourselves! Of course we had Giant Jenga set up at our booth again due to the attention it got at our previous event, and I'd say it got even more praise at this show except maybe from the woman who got caught under the toppling tower.

Simplex-IT and the Cleveland Accounting Show

October 30th, 2018

Simplex-IT has been a long time supporter of the Ohio Society of CPAs (OSCPA) and this year was no different. We had our booth ready to go, and even lucked out by having a neighbor this didn’t show up, so we got to encroach on their space. It was great because we played Giant Jenga, and those Giant Jenga pieces sure can travel when they fall! Bob spoke for over an hour on The Dark Web and Cybersecurity to about 100 people, and gave away his book to all participants (and anyone who wanted one at the show too). We raffled off a gift basket containing a regular sized Jenga game, with an absurd about of candy – Congratulations to our winner Lynn.
