Event Highlights

The World’s Largest, Independent Channel Event Just Got Better

Join 6,400+ MSPs, VARs, agents, integrators, consultants and suppliers at #CPExpo co-located with #CPEvolution

September 8-11 in Las Vegas

What to Expect at 'Expolution'

While global events forced us to postpone this year’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo from March to September – it will be bigger and better from collocating it with our fall show, Channel Partners Evolution. The merging of these two powerhouses will bring together the telco and IT communities and deliver an experience unlike anything the channel has seen before.

Key highlights:

  • Conference and keynote programming will cover the high-quality sales training and business best practices education you'd expect at #CPExpo, plus the forward-thinking technical content that’s so typical of Evolution
  • The 2-day Expo Hall (Sept. 9 & 10) will still showcase 275+ leading suppliers
  • The 2020 MSP 501 and new this year, the NextGen 101 Award Winners will be honored during the annual awards gala on the evening of Sept. 9. 
  • We’ll close out the event on Sept. 11 with a farewell networking brunch honoring our 2020 Excellence in Digital Services Award winners

Mix & Match Among Four Conference Tracks

Regardless of how successful you are, there’s always something more to learn. With a conference or all-access pass, you can choose between dozens of conference sessions centered around bettering yours and your clients’ business, all of which fall under one of four tracks:


It isn’t enough to just be a great tech with a great book of clients anymore. To compete in the channel of the 20s, you need sharp business savvy and outstanding operational chops. It may not sound like the sexiest conference track, but having expertise in best practices that raise your business acumen is what separates the channel dilettantes from the channel superstars.


At the end of the day, partners come to Channel Partners events to learn how to make more money, and nowhere is that ROI more immediate than in our Sales & Marketing content. In addition to big name speakers like Will Harris on Experiential Selling on our keynote stage and sessions on our Expo Hall floor around social selling and overcoming objections, our Sales & Marketing Track identifies areas where partners are missing rich opportunities.


You don’t need us to tell you that it’s past time for you to up your security game. Cyberattacks aren’t just an IT problem anymore, and if a bad actor gets into your clients’ systems through a vulnerability you failed to protect against, it can be game over. But it’s such a complex space, where do you even start? We’ve got you covered with sessions that cover what you need to know from identifying vulnerabilities to building a program around security and selling it to your customers.


In order to maximize revenues, you need to know about emerging tech opportunities and ways to optimize your current offerings. Tech also doesn’t mean a lot unless it’s wrapped up in a sellable solution that’s easy to implement and manage. The point is to recognize opportunities to add to your bottom line—and we’ve got you covered.
