The spring 2022 Channel Partners Conference & Expo, the channel industry’s largest partner event, has opened its call for speaker applications for industry leaders looking to elevate their voice and message.

The Channel Partners Conference & Expo, part of Informa Tech’s Channel division, which also operates the Channel Futures media platform, is looking for subject-matter experts who can help partners advance their businesses, acquire new customers and explore new technology opportunities. Content should appeal to senior leaders of channel organizations that provide information and communications technology solutions to small, midsize and enterprise customers in both the public and private sectors.

You can find out more about applying to lead a breakout or appear on the main stage as a keynote speaker here.

The theme of the spring event is: “The Best is Yet to Come — Today’s Channel Is Poised for Greatness with Unprecedented Opportunities for Growth.” Our advisory board, sponsors and attendees expressed a high degree of optimism about the future of the channel and believe some of the greatest growth opportunities are present now. The event will take place April 11-14, at Las Vegas’ Venetian Resort & Expo. It will bring together the entire channel under one roof with specialized content sessions scheduled for the Channel Partners Conference and The MSP Summit.

After a record-breaking event this November in Las Vegas, the spring conference will once again connect the entire channel to understand how IT and connectivity solutions are reshaping the industry, customer buying behaviors, vendor strategies and partner go-to-market tactics. The event, like the fall conference, is expected to attract some 100 speakers, 6,500 attendees and more than 300 exhibitors and sponsors.

“If you want your message to be heard, this is the event to bring your unique content and perspective to for maximum exposure,” said Janet Schijns, founder of the JS Group, a longtime channel leader turned industry consultant.

Content presenters should focus their applications on what the future holds for the channel as the event focuses on what is next for the partner community. Audience members include entrepreneurs, established leaders and a new generation of partners who are coming together to redefine their businesses to accelerate growth. In attendance will be the direct-selling agents of telecom and cable service providers, MSPs, MSSPs, solution providers, IT integrators, cloud providers, VARs, consultants, technology and communications providers, distributors, tech solution brokers and many other channel organizations.

“With over 150 global events in the technology industry each year, there are very few opportunities to get in front of over 5,000 people at one time. CP Expo and The MSP Summit not only bring together the best and brightest across the telco and tech community, it provides a complete platform for speakers to accelerate business and personal branding,” said Jay McBain, principal analyst, channels, partnerships and ecosystems, Forrester.

Speakers are encouraged to provide content on the following business, technology and emerging tech trends including:

  • Marketing Strategies

  • Optimizing Sales

  • Industry Trends & Outlook

  • Leadership Development

  • M&A and Exit Strategies

  • Operations & Finance

  • 5G & Next-Gen Platforms

  • Security

  • Cloud

  • Unified Communications/Network Infrastructure

  • Mobility

  • Edge Computing

  • Remote Monitoring & Management

  • Emerging & Disruptive Technology

Speaker and industry analyst Anurag Agrawal, CEO of market researcher Techaisle, said, “As the technology industry continues its breakneck speed of innovation, channel partners are accelerating their transformation and moving past their respective inflection points.  In this transition period, partners need insights and real-world answers to questions on sales and marketing investments, resonating programs and practices, coverage and solutions.”

The Channel Partners Conference & Expo will review all applications and announce its final agenda in the coming weeks so please stay tuned for more information.
