Welcome to Channel Partners Evolution.

Why Evolution? Because that’s what’s going on with the most important people in our industry – end customers. A decade ago, most businesses needed a few phone lines, a standalone office suite and some accounting software. Done. Today, every business is a digital business:

  • The best marketing? It happens on the Web and through social media.
  • Customers and sales processes are managed through digital services.
  • Supply chains better be automated.
  • Pre- and post-sale customer support? Inventory management? Automated.

And most importantly, all these processes must be connected, integrated and generating data that can reveal invaluable insights. That is, if the business knows where to look.

As end customers evolve, so must solution providers. And that’s what Channel Partners Evolution is all about. We’re talking hot new techs, innovative business strategies, insightful speakers and more. Agents, VARs, MSPs, integrators and consultants – join us in Washington, D.C. from August 14-17 to meet vendors with state-of-the-art services and partner programs, network with peers and take in a new slate of educational programming.
