MangoCon 2016: Refreshing Your IT Knowledge


By: Danielle Ralston

August 26, 2016


Rochester, NY – Locally owned GroveSocial, LLC announced today their first IT Training Conference.  MangoCon comes in response to the online IT forum and the need for high-level IT training not revolving around a single product.  IT pros need all around training and the ability to ask questions of those that offer and use IT-related products in real environments.


MangoCon — We are super excited to have our event not only be local to our offices, but on an intimate scale of about 100 people total (we are currently at about 60 attendees), so that both vendors and IT pros can really get to know each other in both a technical and social situation.


Real in-depth IT training: MangoCon is created by IT professionals for IT professionals. Our primary goal is to equip IT professionals with knowledge of IT-related products and services. Thus, training sessions are designed to actually provide more focused training, instead of a large variety of surface-level engagement of topics.  We also realize the importance of holding this gathering to create an opportunity for our members to put faces with the names they interact with everyday online. This is a great time for vendor representatives to interact in a social setting. We’ve witnessed over and over again the value of decision-makers getting to know the people who provide the products and services that they want to use, and there is no better way to market than to literally let your audience get to know you.


GroveSocial & – At just over 2 ½ years old GroveSocial is a social media marketing consultancy. was started to give people working in IT a place to ask related questions and not be pigeon-holed by a single product forum.  With about 12,235 posts per month and 13,881,923 total views last month (including views from 32,677 new, unique visitors), we are growing quickly.
