This year’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo and Channel Futures MSP Summit will connect the entire channel at a time when every leader is focused at being the best in the business. In fact, the theme of this year’s conference which will take place April 11-14 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas is “The Best Is Yet to Come.” That fitting theme reflects the optimism all channel partners and their strategic suppliers have about the future of the business.
Under one roof, several thousand partners will gather to discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities facing them when it comes to technology trends, changing customer needs and the evolution of business models. There will be something for everyone, whether they are leading technology advisory firms that sell communications solutions, organizations that deploy managed services or the companies that supply both. The event bridges the communications and information technology channels at a critical time for partners looking to accelerate the success of their customers in a post-pandemic world. This new era is also one fraught with unpredictability as evidenced by repercussion of the Russian invasion of the Ukraine.
This year’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo will feature industry leaders on the main stage delivering game-changing keynotes packed with actionable advice, the debut of a new All-Star Speaker Series featuring the brightest minds in business today and the launch of the Channel Futures Peer Groups. On the main stage, attendees will also gain an understanding of the power of Informa, our parent company, via the vision of Informa Tech CEO Gary Nugent. And as the industry’s largest independent channel conference and expo, Channel Partners Conference & Expo gives attendees the opportunity to connect with more than 6,500 attendees, hear from more than 100 speakers and engage with 300 tech and communications suppliers.
Here’s some of what attendees can look forward to:
CIOs will take to the main stage as part of a panel discussion designed to help everyone in the channel understand the evolution of the buyer’s journey and what senior IT leaders want from their partners.
Channel leaders from some of the biggest names in the industry including Microsoft, Cisco, AT&T and ThreatLocker will come together to discuss how their organizations are transforming partner programs and opening new growth avenues for their network
M&A experts will help every attendee understand the state of mergers, acquisitions and the flow of private equity into the channel as part of a keynote panel. Attendees will then be able to hear specific M&A content in sessions tailored to the specific needs of agents and MSPs.
In a first-of-its-kind keynote, the 2021 Alliance of Channel Women LEAD award winners will appear on the main stage to discuss how they are empowering the next generation of women leaders.
The secrets of agents will be revealed in the main ballroom when today’s leading members of the communications channel — agents, direct sellers and technology advisers — join together for a riveting discussion about the future of their business.
The conference is launching an All-Star Speaker Series featuring experts in cybersecurity, leadership and marketing. Expert moderators will guide discussions that have key takeaways for channel leaders who are looking to lead into new markets, redefine their marketing strategies and understand cybersecurity’s changing landscape.
In the post-pandemic world, attendees of conferences want more value and depth of experience. That’s why we’re launching a new initiative called The Channel Futures Peer Groups where participants can have closed-door conversations about the business of being a channel partner. Peer groups are designed for MSPs focused on cybersecurity and for technology advisers/agents, but open to all technology providers who want to learn from their peers.
While our conference will help our attendees learn, the enormous Expo Hall will allow buyers and sellers to connect at a time when they need to engage in face-to-face engagement. And of course, as is our tradition, we promise to provide our attendees with fun and entertainment.
The Channel Partners Conference & Expo is now less than six weeks away. Between then and now, watch for previews of what’s on the agenda.
