This year’s events will be held at Cannes from 23-25 September, Rio de Janeiro from 21-23 October and Shanghai from 4–6 November. The new additions mean that events will now be more accessible for channel partners who would not normally have access to these types of seminars from their regions.
‘Channel partners look for engagement, inspiration and faster paths to profitable growth from vendors,’ said Alastair Edwards, Principal Analyst for Channels at Canalys. ‘The Canalys Channels Forum global tour aims to achieve just that: to engage and inspire our participants to accelerate their ability to exploit the next wave of technology solutions.’
To stay up to date with the speaker list for each event, you can follow Canalys @CanalysForum. To find out how to be part of the events, vendors should contact Canalys directly for more information, while channel partners should contact their distributors, as event attendance is by invitation only.
