"By gaining access to an ecosystem of partners, we’ll put distribution at the center of our channel strategy,” summit participants said.

Ingram Micro held its Cloud Summit this week in Miami Beach. More than 1,700 attendees participated in the conference, including the individuals featured in this gallery.

When asked what they hoped to get out of the event, several attendees had similar answers. Many just relished having face-to-face time and meaningful conversations with partners. Others had more specific responses tailored to their companies’ needs. Ingram Micro’s last cloud summit was two and half years ago. The pandemic forced company organizers to cancel the conference during that period. And that may be why there was so much renewed enthusiasm during the event this week.

For others, this was their first summit experience. Take the team at Nord Security. The Berlin-based security firm is seeking to expand globally. However, they weren’t the only international presence. Anyone listening closely could hear German, Dutch, Spanish and even Lithuanian being spoken on the conference floor. If Ingram Micro is seeking to expand its global reach, this conference is a testament to that.
