Mix & Match Among 5 Conference Tracks
#CPEvolution gives you the power to personalize your schedule so you can attend the sessions that suit your business needs.
5G & Wi-Fi 6 presented with Light Reading
5G is here, and that means self-driving cars and virtual reality for everyone, everywhere, right? The reality is that by 2025, only half of the U.S. population will be on true 5G networks. Wi-Fi 6 will be here sooner, but neither technology will be a game-changer for customer businesses without your help. Channel Partners Evolution is pleased to welcome Phil Harvey, U.S. news editor of our sister site Light Reading, as chair of our 5G and Wi-Fi 6 mini track.
- Demystifying 5G’s Arrival
- Wi-Fi 6 and Your Customers
When developing a long-term growth plan for your business, you can’t be tactical — it’s about more than setting prices and deciding on an SD-WAN supplier. Our most popular and well-attended sessions are all about how to put in place a set of guiding principles that everyone in your company can reference to make decisions, deploy resources and convey your vision to customers.

Careers presented with Channel NX2Z
Hiring and retaining skilled personnel is a continuous challenge for partners. In this mini track, presented with our Channel NX2Z group, we’ll discuss the need for continuous training and bring in a noted expert to discuss finding employees who will move your business forward.
- The Continuous Need for Professional Development
Marketing & Tech
Marketing is traditionally a pain point for MSPs, even with resources from their upstream partners. But without a plan to convey your unique value proposition, how do you convince customers that they should sign on for your managed services versus those provided by competitors? And of course, cool new (or new to you) technologies give your marketing team something to talk about.

- Get Finance and IT Aligned for Hybrid Cloud Success

Channel Partners Evolution is pleased to welcome Tim Wilson, co-founder and editor-in-chief of our sister site Dark Reading, as chair of our half-day Security track.

I have worked in the telecom industry for 30 years. The past 25 in the Channel. I have watched the event evolve from payphone and dialer vendors to IoT and AI demo’s and discussions. The show has been always been progressive with evolution, education, and relationship at its center. The constant is the human factor; people do business with people they like and trust, and It starts with in person engagement at Channel Partners, which you can’t get digitally (yet).
