This well established conference is the annual forum in which resellers can meet to discuss the potential direction of the UK IT Channel for the following year.
The conference offers a rare opportunity for reseller leaders to share best practice with their peers, as well as perspectives from leading vendors, distributors and independent market specialists.
With the UK IT channel evolving faster than ever, effective leadership is crucial for the survival of any channel business. The growth of cloud computing and the consumerisation of IT onslaught will push this evolution even further; resellers need to be planning for the future, as well as dealing with the ‘now'.
This event will present a unique occasion for those at the helm of channel businesses to discuss key issues and define strategies for the next 2-3 years of growth.
