The VAR Guy has another conference to add to its 2015 technology conference calendar: Penton Technology Group's Channel Directions Live, slated for Sept. 28-30 in Tampa, Florida. The three-day event is designed for partners looking to address the challenges of the evolving IT sales and service marketplace.
What's different about this event? First off, it features an agenda created BY partners FOR partners and content presented by our experts, editors and analysts (in other words, no vendor content). During the event, an awards presentation is planned for MSPmentor 501 and Talkin’ Cloud 100 list honorees.
Ryan Morris of Morris Management Partners will headline the Channel Directions Live and deliver the keynote address. Editors of all three Penton channel sites—The VAR Guy, MSPmentor and Talkin' Cloud—also will be there.
Channel Directions Live also will feature challenge-specific breakout sessions designed to help IT solution and service providers succeed and thrive in a new era, including:
- Market forces affecting the IT channel that require whole new strategies
- Business model implications for solution providers, managed service providers, cloud service providers and VARs
