CRN is never a title that stands still, and to continue this tradition we have launched a brand new event called Channel Partner Connect (CPC) today.
We are confident the event, which takes place at the Coventry Ricoh Arena on 12 May, will be something the channel embraces.
It truly will be something that has not been done before.
The aim of CPC is to encourage networking between top level executives from resellers, vendors and distributors, and to showcase the latest offerings in five different technology areas: Software, Networking and Comms, Peripherals, Infrastructure & Hardware and Web Services & Cloud.
We are working hard to get a top notch education programme in place featuring top industry names and covering topics we know through research that you - our readers - want to hear.
We already have IBM confirmed as a speaker and by the time you read this we will have HP on board as well.
For the first time ever, the event will have its own micro-site, featuring news, interviews and whitepapers all exclusive to CPC, where you can register to attend and keep up to date with the speaker programme.
We hope you will register and look forward to seeing you there.
