The largest event for the technology services community is almost here.
The Channel Partners Conference and Expo, April 17-20, at the Venetian & Sands Expo in Las Vegas, will bring together more than 6,000 participants – agents, VARs, MSPs, integrators, consultants, service providers and more – to share ideas and drive discussion on the topics shaping our industry.
And in the expo hall, attendees will have access to 275 exhibitors, Channel Partners Studio, the MSP Pavilion, Cloud Computing Pavilion, Game Zone, Pub Crawl and more.
And to bust a myth — this isn’t just a telco show. Our roots are in telecom, and you’ll see a big presence from the likes of AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink and others — we’re proud of that. But we’ve added a staggering amount of IT suppliers to the show floor; in fact, the list you’re about to scroll through will be very appealing to VAR and MSP partners. Don’t worry, telecom agents — there’s still plenty here for you as well.
The expo hall’s numerous first-time Channel Partners Conference & Expo exhibitors include such big names as Kaspersky Lab, IBM and Office Depot. That’s right — they’re making their first appearance in the expo hall, and we doubt it will be their last. These companies will show off their latest offerings around cybersecurity, SD-WAN, UC, data-center services and other technologies.
Browse through our gallery below to see our first-time exhibitors and learn about their products and services. Then return to this guide when you’re cruising the show floor to see who can be found where.
There’s still time to register for our biggest-ever event.
