The Channel Partners Conference & Expo shattered another attendance record, and some of the partners and vendor reps onsite provided Channel Futures with a handful of most memorable quotes from the world’s largest independent channel event.

But let’s start with the numbers: more than 8,000 attendees. That’s right — 8,000. That beat the old record of 7,400, set just last year. We were up nearly 20% coming out of COVID, and that number kept growing in 2023. A surge in managed service providers (MSPs) participating in the event has been a big reason why, but the strength of technology advisors (agents) coming to Channel Partners is stronger than ever as well.

We also set a record for sponsors and exhibitors, with approximately 350. That was probably obvious to anyone who stepped inside the expo hall, which was packed on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons with suppliers and partners meeting, building relationships and setting up deals.

Some of the show’s highlights included a panel on how to prepare your business for a sale; a two-hour MSP workshop featuring advice from some of the biggest names in the industry; a motivational keynote from retired astronaut Capt. Scott Kelly; and a state of the agent market report from tech advisors themselves.

See our slideshow above for some of the most memorable quotes, both on stage and behind the scenes, at CP Expo.
