Since 2007, Canalys Channels Forums have been the source of trusted insight for channel partners, distributors, vendors and the mid-market media. Each member of our broader channels community takes away critical updates, insights and, often, partnership agreements.
If you are a channel partner serving the mid-market
We know that few channel partners have the time or budget to attend high-profile international forums. Therefore this event has been carefully designed to give you the best value for your time as it delivers both learning and networking opportunities. Channel partners can request an invitation by registering at the Canalys channels community web site, Candefero. The invitation criteria are strict and places are limited, so some candidates will inevitably be disappointed, but even they can benefit from post-event videos and other material that will be posted on Candefero.
If you are a distributor
Picking winning trends during industry transitions has been the bedrock of success for distributors. Plenary keynote sessions, analyst-led topical theater sessions, best practice workshops and one-to-one sessions provide ample opportunity to benefit from our analysts’ knowledge and advice.
If you are a vendor targeting the mid-market
Regardless of size, businesses want their unique requirements to be acknowledged and technology solutions to match their specific needs. An effective channel approach is vital for success in the mid-market if the cost of sales is to be managed against available revenue and margins. Expanding your partner program often means meeting and qualifying new partners. Canalys Channels Forums serve this purpose as only selected channel partners are invited to attend and have most of their travel costs funded by Canalys.
If you are a member of the media serving the mid-market
Canalys Channels Forums have attracted media partners from numerous key channel publications across EMEA. Attending members of the press gain full access to the forums, including all plenary keynote and theater sessions, as well as the gala dinner and a dedicated press reception.
