We know you go to Channel Partners to learn and soak in everything that could improve your business, but we acknowledge that you’re there to have a good time as well.
For the first time ever, Channel Partners is hosting its own party! We’ll open the doors to the keynote room immediately after the conclusion of the Excellence in Digital Services and Channel Influencer Networking Reception on Wednesday, April 10. More details including the time in the gallery below.
Also below you’ll find a sampling of parties, including traditional ones hosted by the big master agents — think Intelisys, Avant and WTG. But that’s not all. A number of other companies are inviting you to parties and networking events that we’ve included as well.
Not much of a partier? That’s OK. What follows also includes all the swag you can take home, from vacations to Apple products, Amazon gift cards, bacon – yes, bacon – and more.
Check it out!
