Welcome to the ChannelNEXT 2021 Channel Predictions & “Holiday Season Happy Hour”
It’s December and we have almost made it through a year that we will never forget. Let’s virtually hang out one last time to wrap up and look forward to 2021. We will be giving out some cool gifts to celebrate this Holiday Season! We will also gather an expert panel to discuss 2021 channel predictions.
We have created this last virtual event of this year for all channel professionals who crave a casual, uncomplicated get-together while hearing about the 2021 predictions from our experts.
How does it work? When you enter the virtual session you will see virtual” tables” for 6, 4, 3 and 2 people. Just double click to join any table and you will be transported into a live video chat. Introduce yourself, share stuff, connect on LinkedIn and talk to anybody. Just like you did your networking sitting on a dinner table while attending a “real”, personal event.
You have 15 minutes for networking until we start a panel discussion. Panelists will join the host on the “stage” while you can raise your hand (virtually) to ask your questions and participate in the discussion.
Afterwards you can join the experts on their tables. If you want to have a private meeting with someone, then just jump on a table for 2! Jump in and out of tables as often as you wish. No rules except the obvious to be kind and courteous.
Remember to tag up your LinkedIn profile so people can get to know you and instantly connect directly with you in real-time. It’s a cool feature that make connections super easy.
All participants can move freely from virtual table to table. Some tables may be sponsored by vendors or have a special discussion theme. Attendees can actually name the discussion topic at the table (let us know and we do that on your behalf). Just keep on joining tables and meeting people to see where it goes…
Prepare your special drink to join us for the Holiday Season Happy Hour!
