We are updating MSPmentor's Events Calendar with key conferences, Web seminars and executive summits designed for managed service providers. Here's a quick look at three events I plan to attend over the next few weeks.
- February 7, Philadelphia - Executive Luncheon: Do IT Smarter, Xerox, MX Logic and Sonic Wall are hosting a luncheon for established and aspiring managed service providers. I attended one of these luncheons in Boston in December 2007. It was a great opportunity to network with a few dozen VARs and to begin to learn more about hardware-as-a-service opportunities, particularly managed print services. Do IT Smarter also described how you can get into the managed services market without writing out a huge check to start. More Info Here.
- February 14, New York - Breakfast on Broadway: I will be one of the keynote speakers at an event hosted by Telehouse America. We'll explore how small and midsize businesses are embracing management services -- and we'll examine many of the challenges facing MSPs and the broader software-as-a-service market. For more information, you can email me (joe [at] ninelivesmediainc.com).
- March 30-April 1 - MSP Alliance Atlanta Conference: A great destination for anyone who is seeking to network with MSP platform providers, VARs, integrators and the managed services community. More Info Here.
