Our team is back from Channel Partners Evolution 2019 and we’ve got some highlights to share with you!

Channel Partners Evolution (CPEvolution) was held September 9 to September 12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. The channel tech conference was attended by 3000 of the industry’s leading solution providers, vendors, distributors, IT professionals and media, with over 150 exhibitors. Here’s our recap:

Notes from the Conference Floor

Though it didn’t always feel like it with the trade show floor being open for 11 hour days, the Imagit booth was busy. We met a lot of new people in the new channel and found several prospective new partnerships. We walked away with over 100 new contacts from scans at the booth, and business cards acquired throughout the show. One common theme was channel convergence. It’s affecting different companies in different ways, but the one thing that resonates across the board is a need to add more capabilities to take on new types of projects and add more value to customers.  Imagit is well positioned to help with this need thanks to our team of 400 network and systems engineers + smarthands who can almost any project need for partners across the US and Canada. The demand for more ‘as a service’ offerings also remains prevalent, and we are feeling very excited to launch our new LAN as a Service (LANaaS) offering after some great conversations with channel partners. If you didn’t get a chance to learn about that, we are offering channel partners the ability to sell LAN equipment, configuration, remote and onsite support with a 4hr SLA nationwide with no capex and a flat monthly cost. Contact sales to learn more about how you can leverage this to add value to your customers either as a white label or sold and commissioned model.

Networking Opportunities

There was no shortage of after show activities in DC. From happy hours, to rooftops, to house parties and spy museums the Imagit team had a great time networking with partners and making new friends in the channel. We may be a bit biased, but our favorite event was the Imagit house party from 9pm – 1am on Tuesday night. We took over a downtown mansion a few blocks from the convention center, and had a great time. We would like to thank everyone who made it to help make this channel partners event a great one, and hope you all enjoyed it as well.
