Master-agent Avant recently welcomed partners and suppliers to its Special Forces Summit, held June 10-12, in Chicago.

The sales training brought together the channel community and thought leaders from the company’s key vendor partners for what Avant calls “the industry’s only conference dedicated to sales strategies, tactics and tools that will enable partners to transform their businesses to that of a true trusted adviser.”

Avant says the training had something for every partner looking to improve their skills selling the hottest and fastest growing technology products and services. It was designed for partners who are serious about “taking concrete steps” to increase their IT solutions sales acumen.

This summit also featured Avant’s 10th anniversary celebration, recognized by nearly 1,000 tech industry professionals in attendance.

Other highlights:

  • The rebranding of Avant’s BattleApp platform to “Pathfinder.”

  • The unveiling of Avant Analytics, an initiative to help partners help their customers make more informed tech buying decisions.

  • Always popular awards for partners and suppliers.
