Coffee with Craig and James Episode No. 122: Ingram Micro, MSP 501 Edition

Find out best practices for applying for the MSP 501; plus, some big sessions for agents at CP Expo.

It’s MSP 501 season. The final day to apply for the biggest and best awards program in the channel is April 30. With that rapidly approaching deadline in mind, we decided to dedicate this podcast to the Channel Futures MSP 501.

First, we welcome in Ginette Andre, senior marketing associate for Channel Futures and VIP liaison for the MSP 501. Ginette offers up some frequently asked questions for candidates who are applying for the list.

Then comes the team from Ingram Micro, sponsor and longtime supporter of the 501. The distributor’s execs discuss the value of landing on the list. They also cover some important managed service provider trends for 2023.

Also, it wouldn’t be an episode of the podcast without talk of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. James tells us about two of the sessions he’ll be hosting and why you should be there.

Finally, what’s in a name? A common email mistake that flusters some of our colleagues.
