Places may already be limited for the CRN European Channel Leadership Forum (ECLF), but it is still not too late to register.
This channel conference with a difference is aimed at md/CEO/C-level execs from VARs/MSPs and is now in its third year. It encourages top-level networking and idea sharing without an agenda.
Last year the event boasted a range of top keynotes including England Rugby captain Will Carling, former Sainsbury's boss Justin King, Softcat CEO Graeme Watt and Insight UK MD Emma de Sousa. Read the top takeaways from the event here.
It was attended by over 50 delegates, many of them from the CRN Top 100 VARs, and received excellent feedback. See a video from last year here.
This year's event is taking place on Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 September at the Mondrian in London. The event takes the form of a gala dinner on 4 September with Sir Clive Woodward (pictured, right) as the guest speaker, and a conference on 5 September with Computacenter CEO Mike Norris (pictured, left) kicking off the keynotes the next day.
CRN is also delighted to welcome Dell Technologies as a keynote speaker for this event, and a top channel boss from the vendor (all will be revealed) will be sharing their predictions for the channel and where they see the industry going.
The ECLF stands out from other channel events because it features an exclusive CIO panel giving a no-holds barred view of the industry. This is a chance to hear directly from the customers exactly what it is that attracts them to technology partners and what it is they don't want from their suppliers.
Delegates will also hear the US viewpoint on trends and key factors shaping strategies on that side of the pond, and a Top VAR panel will discuss the skills gap and how to retain and attract talent.
There are yet more end user and industry speakers to be announced so keep an eye out for those, but the event is on track to be the best yet.
