VIRGO, an information distribution company focused on the most innovative and complex business-to-business markets that fuel the U.S. and world economies, announced that its fall event is being rebranded as Cloud Partners, a Channel Partners event. Cloud Partners will serve as a gathering point for providers and the channel to come together to explore and debut new cloud solutions. The event will take place Sept. 11-13, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
“We are excited about the introduction of Cloud Partners, a Channel Partners event," said John Siefert, CEO of VIRGO. “Attendees will be able to find new cloud solutions, discover new architectural approaches to meeting their customers’ needs and learn from industry thought leaders who are defining the space."
Cloud Partners will include an exhibit hall featuring cloud providers, distributors and master agents, and IT hardware and software companies that are enabling channel partners to build and/or deliver cloud solutions.
Cloud Partners also will include unique networking events and educational programming from 30-minute primers to multi-hour workshops. Channel Partners will be working closely with its partners CompTIA, Cloud & Technology Transformation Alliance (CTTA) and Cloud Services Community, to develop cloud-focused education sessions for the event.
“Based on input from the Channel Partners audience, we believe this is the perfect time to evolve our fall event into Cloud Partners in order to reflect the shifts and momentum around the cloud environment and how it affects our attendees, exhibitors and sponsors," said Katherine Clements, vice president of VIRGO’s Medical and Communications Networks.
