Channel Futures, the sister site to Channel Partners Online, on Wednesday announced the launch of its 11th annual MSP 501, the IT channel’s largest and most comprehensive ranking of leading managed service provider (MSP) organizations worldwide. Managed service providers can apply to be counted among the top 501 MSPs worldwide here.
In addition to a place on the industry rankings, applicants can also submit supplementary entries for the 501’s coveted special awards such as the Vanguard Award for the company that demonstrates thought leadership in terms of digital transformation; the Lifetime Achievement Award for an executive who has demonstrated commitment, perseverance, creativity and ingenuity over an entire career; the Newcomer Award, bestowed upon a first-time MSP 501er that is shaking things up; and more.
“We are excited to participate in the industry-leading MSP 501 ranking list, which has been held as a standard of benchmarking within the channel industry for more than a decade,” said Lorna Garey, editor-in-chief of Channel Partners Online and Channel Futures. “This year’s 501 will include new awards, deep insights into the channel ecosystem and recognition of the world’s leading managed service providers at our fall Channel Partners Evolution conference, Oct. 9-12, in Philadelphia.”
Winners will be honored at a special MSP 501 gala Channel Partners Expo this year.
The survey closes at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 31. Managed service providers can submit their applications here.
