Since 1987, PHONE+ had been serving the telecom channel, primarily the competitive long-distance and resale community. When the resale market expanded into data and local services, PHONE+ expanded its reader base. But there was no trade show or other in-person forum specifically geared toward the needs of the indirect channel. So, PHONE+ created one.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Details on that history will be revealed over the course of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. In the meantime, scroll through the image gallery above for some highlights of the last quarter-century of shows.
