The Channel Partners Conference & Expo truly has become a global event.
We’re welcoming more than five-dozen first-time exhibitors to the show floor — that’s right, more than 60 companies that you’ll be able to interact with in the Channel Partners expo hall for the first time.
They not only come from all over the U.S., but now as far away as China and Australia. A handful of these companies attended their first Channel Partners event – Cloud Partners – in Boston last fall. The majority are making their maiden voyages with CP.
This list, led by software behemoth Microsoft, and distributors such as Synnex and Tech Data, also features some names you don’t know, but should.
Click through the next several pages to see where you can find these businesses on the show floor, plus a brief description about them. Meeting with one of them just might take your business to the next level.
It’s not too late to sign up for the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. Register here.
