Are you ready for Channel Partners Homecoming? Because we’re getting ready for you.
Channel Partners Homecoming’s two colocated events, the Channel Partners Conference & Expo and Channel Futures MSP Summit, have released their fall conference agendas and speaker lineups. Featured are subject matter experts focused on delivering channel technology, business and leadership content. These gatherings are designed as a homecoming celebration for senior channel leaders wanting to engage in peer-to-peer discussions on best practices to help their businesses grow.
This conference is the industry’s only event that connects the entire channel — IT solution providers, agent and connectivity providers. Speakers selected for the Nov. 1-4 conference were chosen from an exhaustive list submitted as part of Informa Tech Channel’s Call for Speakers. Hundreds of individuals and organizations submitted content ideas to address how channel partners and MSPs can decipher the latest technology trends to better serve and lead their customers, develop new partnerships, boost sales and increase recurring revenue.
Exploring New Possibilities
Based on recommendations from members of the Channel Partners Advisory Board, the theme of “Exploring New Possibilities” focuses content on what the future holds for channel partners navigating their role, value and influence in a post-pandemic economy. There will be extensive vendor-neutral conference content sessions, main stage keynotes, an expo hall packed with 250 sponsors’ booths and demo areas, closed-door meetings, vendor briefings, a gala awards ceremony for the 2021 MSP 501 and networking receptions. And, since this is our first in-person event since COVID-19 shuttered live gatherings, we built in a lot of fun for our attendees.
In a nutshell, we expect the four-day event to be attended by 5,000 partners who will engage with not only their peers, but representatives from 250 key tech suppliers, master agents and distributors, and hear from more than 100 industry-leading speakers. The main stage will feature prominent CIOs, MSP thought leaders, top vendor executives, leading consultants and distributors, among others. Stay tuned for an upcoming Channel Futures blog that will provide details on our keynote speakers.
