ChannelNEXT Gone Virtual

“Until Meeting In-Person Is Safe” 

What we do for you! You are NOT alone!

No company can afford to stand still during this crisis. It's time to find and stay ahead of the curve!

Virtual conferences can be frustrating and tiring but they have become the new digital workplaces for the channel. Our virtual conferences will help bridge the gap until things settle down. Business leaders come together to learn, network, build relationships and partnerships. For over 18 years, the ChannelNEXT in-person conferences have been delivering on this single goal. Our events are always evolving to meet the current needs of our audience and now is no different. Today, we adapted to virtual activities to continue delivering powerful and practical business-building education and connecting the best vendors with channel partners to generate recurring revenue. It’s a safe place to build best business practices and future-proof your company. It’s peer-to-peer collaboration. It’s where you find the latest tech-trends and marketplace. It’s live social networking. It’s building partnerships and relationships. It’s personal. It’s fun! It’s a worthy experience…

VIRTUAL Event Consultation (including the new hybrid in-person live streaming events)

There is no greater wealth than wisdom, no greater poverty than ignorance; no greater heritage than culture and no greater support than consultation.

It’s all about virtual events until in-person is back!

Sometimes it’s better to do your own virtual events. Talk to us and we can help you figure out the best way. We understand the event business at the DNA level and know what it takes to run an event smoothly and successfully. We have been creating award-winning VIP conferences for over 18 years:  Partner Conferences, End-User Expos, Road Shows, Award Gala Dinners, Virtual Events, Team Building Retreats, Bootcamps, Mastermind, Corporate Events and Awesome Parties. We know events of all types.…We even have a free guide to measure the real ROI on any event – just ask for a copy.

Our Amazing Event Teams

It takes a lot of great professional people to make any event run smoothly. We are proud to have built one of the industry’s best event teams. From the front lines to the back-end, everyone executes their jobs with care and precision. Our inside team is constantly working on the events all year long to find great venues, invite attendees, update content with business coaches, grow vendor sponsorships and all of the 1000 little things that go into making a fun and successful event.
We always push to do better. Mistakes are an opportunity to learn and improve. The only thing we take personal is the VIP care of our delegates. Our team is always there to make the experience as valuable and pleasurable as possible. And the post-event surveys are currently tracking our event team at 97% approval rating.  We may never get to 100%, but we will keep trying…
Every year, our event footprint continues to expand. Beyond our branded events (ChannelNEXT, VARTrends/MSPTrends, Reseller Choice Awards or 50 Best Managed IT Companies Awards), we also do many vendor partner exclusive events like road tours. We hope to see you at one of our next events!


ChannelNEXT Virtual and In-Person conferences are the meeting points of our Channel Community. All Channel Partner Alliance Members and Mastermind Peer-Groups are always welcome to attend and connect with each other. Today, we offer a variety of virtual events including the full conferences, freestyle hang-outs, Lunch & Learns, “Wine” About Business, Mastermind peer groups, webinars, courses and round tables. We have also built out a new hybrid in-person and live streaming event as we believe that will be in the new normal in the event industry. What for these events coming to a city near you when it’s safe to do so! If meeting channel partners is part of your mission, then talk to us and put our extensive event expertise to work for you!
