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.

Sessions Include:

  • Demystifying 5G’s Arrival
  • Wi-Fi 6 and Your Customers
Business Strategy

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.

Sessions Include:

  • The Culture Imperative: The Bedrock of High-Performing Organizations
  • CEO Roundtable with ConnectWise’s Jason Magee
  • Meet the Rainmakers: Secrets of Sales Superstars
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.

Sessions Include:

  • 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.

Sessions Include:

  • Strategies for MSP Success in the Burgeoning UCaaS Market
  • Get Finance and IT Aligned for Hybrid Cloud Success
Security with Dark Reading

Protecting customer data, employees and physical assets is an important, and profitable, business. 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. Join us to hear where the smart money sees security technology going and which suppliers will help you win in the hot managed detection and response market.

Sessions Include:

  • Security 2020: What VC Funding Reveals About Future Trends
  • The MDR Opportunity: Who, What & Why
