Each year Bridgepointe hosts a Technology Summit that brings together our top agents and suppliers for multiple days of learning, business and relationship building, and of course — FUN.

This year’s theme was S33 MOR3 — all about seeing more signal, technology and connections. S33 MOR3 2019 was held at the iconic Parker Palm Springs in mid-September.

Here’s a recap of our unforgettable event…


The first day kicked off in style with a discussion on all things Bridgepointe followed by a one-of-a-kind battle between our Diamond Sponsors. The UCaaS/CCaaS battle had industry titans 8×8, PanTerra, TalkDesk and Vonage squaring off on the strength of their solutions.

The battle included a no-holds-barred discussion on how big players like Amazon, Google and Microsoft, are moving into the UCaaS market and what that means for companies migrating to UCaaS. The fighters cited their singular focus on UCaaS as being a key differentiator because they have the vision, service and experience in the market that the bigger players simply can’t rival.

To replenish after the battle, everyone grabbed a cocktail and then headed to Parker Pointe, an exclusive Bridgepointe enclave, for presentations from AT&T and Masergy, followed by a Diamond Dinner.


Day two was jam packed starting with breakfast and followed by presentations from Diamond sponsors CenturyLink, DRT, IBM, TPx, BCM One and Switch.

Each sponsor shared insights on their solutions with no PowerPoints allowed. From these talks, it was abundantly clear that each of these suppliers is evolving with the market. All of them have capabilities and services beyond what they’re typically known for, which is great knowledge for BPT clients and agents.

The afternoon featured Bridgepointe’s co-founders Scott Evars and Brian Miller giving an update on what the company’s been up to and what’s to come.

Next up was keynote speaker Mike Robbins, who spoke about leading in business and life with authenticity and appreciation. Completing the afternoon was the Agent Panel, where some of Bridgepointe’s largest producers shared their secrets to success.

With a successful day in the books, it was time for the evening to begin with none other than a BPT signature extravaganza: our S33 M0R3 From the Top Lawn Party. You really just had to be there!


Wednesday morning kicked off with a Gold Sponsors only breakfast followed by their panel discussions, featuring Aryaka, Comcast, Flexential, GlobalGig, INAP, Telestra and Verizon Business. These rapid-fire panels had suppliers thinking on their feet.

The day continued with the supplier fair, where the participating companies were on hand to answer questions and network with agents.

We wrapped up the day with some fun in the sun, because after all, what’s a trip to Palm Springs or a Bridgepointe event without a pool party? The revelry continued well into the night with agents, suppliers and the BPT team having time to connect with one another and unwind.


S33 M0R3 wrapped up with a session on Selling Data Centers and Colocation with Equinix and our VP of Technology, Mike Pereira, where they discussed the needs of different types of customers. As Mike explained, buying retail colo is very different than wholesale, and each brings distinct considerations.
