Canalys, a provider of market analysis and partner events for the channel ecosystem, will host a channel partner event in North America next November. The Canalys Forum North America, which builds on 15 years of events in APAC, EMEA and LATAM, will be an aspirational event designed with partners at its core and celebrating the opportunities ahead, the company said.
The goal of the event is to propel company valuations for all entities involved in partnering by celebrating the channel’s pivotal role in the tech industry. It will strive to showcase the power of the partner ecosystem to investors, communicating the needs of the channel to vendors and sharing best practices throughout the partner community.
“In the ecosystem era, the tech industry needs channel partners like never before,” said Steve Brazier, Canalys President and CEO. “Partners are installing, maintaining, training, supporting, integrating, securing, financing, supplying, configuring and selling solutions from thousands of suppliers.”
The distributor TD SYNNEX is an inaugural partner on the North America event. “The technology business partner ecosystem is alive with connections that inspire innovation, creative solutions and partnerships that enrich the way we live and work,” said Michael Urban, President, Americas, TD SYNNEX. “We are proud to have a longstanding relationship with Canalys, with a focus on delivering value to this ecosystem in innovative ways, such as launching our recent IT Ecosystem Benchmark Report, and partnering for the launch of the Canalys Forum North America.”
The Canalys Forum North America will be held in November 2023 in Southern California.
