The Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas may have officially kicked off on Wednesday, but for all intents and purposes, it got going as early as noon on Tuesday when ScanSource held its 1COMM on the Road event.
Also on Tuesday: the AT&T First-Time Attendee Reception, the Women in the Channel event and the Cable Zone party.

Channel Partners and our title sponsor, AT&T, welcomed a large crowd of “first-timers” to the AT&T First-Time Attendee Reception Tuesday night at Lavo, inside the Palazzo Hotel and Casino.
ScanSource‘s 1COMM On The Road event in conjunction with the Channel Partners Conference and Expo drew several hundred registrations and was sponsored by Avaya, Ruckus, Polycom and others.
ScanSource CTO Greg Dixon discussed the “J curve” inherent in moving from break/fix to managed services and how the distributor’s packaged offering can ease the transition.
As part of a Women in the Channel panel conversation, Level 3 SVP Lisa Miller said her company sees real value from a mix of voices.
Also on the panel, Telarus’ Patrick Oborn gave his mother props as a role model for women in telecom.
