The Channel Partners Excellence in Digital Services Awards is our newest awards program where we recognize partners who deliver stellar business outcomes for their clients. Winners get honored during a networking reception at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, April 9-12, 2019.
If that sounds a bit like the Channel Partners 360° Business Value Awards, you’re right. The Channel Partners Excellence in Digital Services Awards are the next iteration: Winners still need to demonstrate that value. But now, we’ll recognize specific achievements across 10 categories, plus two very special awards. Rather than judging done solely by our editorial staff, the Channel Partners Advisory Board will be involved, bringing a real-world eye to entries. And rather than having 25 winners who all had to meet the same level of proficiency, we will now recognize standouts in various aspects of channel services and digital transformation.

The Channel Partners Choice Award recognizes vendors for innovations in their channel-partner programs. Anyone in our community may nominate a vendor partner; winners will be recognized at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. The submission deadline for the 2019 awards is March 1, 2019. Download the nomination form, then submit it to Buffy Naylor, email@example.com. Learn about our 2018 winners.
The Circle of Excellence is Channel Partners’ program that recognizes IT and telecom channel leaders who are helping their partners create business value for their customers. The Circle of Excellence honors executives for their vision, innovation and advocacy of the indirect channel during a time of transition and convergence. Selections are made by Channel Partners.

Are you a managed service provider on the leading edge of digital transformation in the channel? Then stand and be counted in the Channel Futures MSP 501 list and survey. The 501 is the IT channel’s largest and most comprehensive ranking of leading managed service provider (MSP) organizations worldwide and recognizes partners of every size, vertical, specialization and geography. How will you stack up against your competitors and peers? There’s only one way to find out! Applications for our sister site’s 2019 honors will become available in March.
Also from Channel Futures comes a revamp of its Talkin’ Cloud 100 application to find those companies that are enriching the ecosystem and bringing significant value to cloud-first customers. We’re transitioning from ranking cloud service providers based primarily on revenue to shining a spotlight on companies making substantive contributions to the community. After all, as we see with some of the cool startups in the cloud-supplier and CSP space, earnings are far from the only indicator of success.
2019 Talkin’ Cloud 100 awardees will be all about innovation in the CSP space; these awards will reflect the way CSPs are now defining the possibilities of cloud services. We will also use the information we receive from applicants to develop new benchmarks of excellence and guide our future efforts in serving the evolving CSP community. Complete your Talkin’ Cloud 100 application today!
Talkin’ Cloud 100 applications will close Feb. 15, 2019.
