Canalys has revealed the name of some of the sponsors at the Canalys Channels Forums 2021, a virtual event targeting the channel community.
Dell Technologies, Google Chrome Enterprise, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), HP, Lenovo, Nutanix and Trend Micro are some of the main sponsors at the Canalys Channels Forums 2021.
AMD, Wasabi, Secureworks, Acer, Citrix, Datacore, Eaton, Equinix, Fujitsu, Kaspersky, Schneider Electric, Veeam, Vertiv and WatchGuard are also sponsoring the IT event.
Gemma Edwards, VP Events, said: “Our experience running the Canalys events, and many more through our events platform, Canapii, has shown that attendees need a break from relentless programs full of back-to-back video presentations. We are putting together an exciting new format for 2021 called “Expert Hubs.”
“These are a series of intimate, facilitated interactions with partners, distributors and vendors around dedicated topics, led by Canalys analysts. The emphasis of these is on bringing true engagement, with partners educating vendors and participants learning from their peers.”
Canalys has invited important resellers and MSPs. Leaders and experts from these partners and the most important distributors in each region will be active participants in the Expert Hubs. Topics for these sessions cover five critical areas identified by Canalys analysts as those where our industry can thrive in the coming years. They are cybersecurity, IT as a service, digital workplace, strategy and sustainability.
Headline sponsorships now entirely sold out. There are some sponsorship opportunities available at other levels. These provide a chance for channel-focused cloud, device, infrastructure and cybersecurity vendors to come on board to connect with many of the world’s channel partners and distributors.
