IT By Design, a Master Managed Services Provider (MMSP), announced today that Eli Manning, the former quarterback for the New York Giants and two-time Super Bowl champion and MVP, will be a featured speaker at its annual industry conference, Build IT LIVE, which will be held from Wednesday, July 27, to Friday, July 29, at the Hyatt Regency on the Hudson in Jersey City, NJ. The conference is designated a “Top 50” channel event and last year hosted more than 400 attendees.

Attendees seek answers to vital questions for their managed services provider (MSP) businesses, especially regarding such critical areas as security, sales, marketing, and culture. As a highlight of the show, they will travel to nearby MetLife Stadium – the home of the Giants and The New York Jets – receive a tour of the venue and then be hosted by Manning for a fireside chat. He is expected to share his thoughts on leadership skills and the importance of teamwork using anecdotes from his 16-year professional football career. He will also conduct a meet-and-greet autograph session.

Manning spent his entire career with The New York Giants and holds the franchise records for passing yards, touchdown passes, and completions. He was a four-time Pro Bowler and the 2016 recipient of The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award, which is presented annually by the National Football League honoring a player’s volunteer and charity work.

“Each year we try to create a memorable experience for our attendees as part of our educational conference,” said Kam Kaila, ITBD President. “This year we’re thrilled to have Eli Manning as a featured speaker and share lessons from his storied career to enlighten and entertain our guests.”
