No company can afford not to move forward. It may be at the top of the heap today but at the bottom of the heap tomorrow, if it doesn’t.

Conferences are important workplaces of today where business leaders come together to learn, network, build relationships and partnerships. For over 15 years, the ChannelNEXT conferences has been delivering on this single goal. Our events are always evolving to meet the current needs of our audience. Today, we are delivering powerful and practical business-building education and connecting the best vendors with channel partners to generate recurring revenue. It’s a best business practice learning centre. It’s peer-to-peer collaboration. It’s a tech-trends market. It’s live social networking. It’s building partnerships and relationships. It’s eating and drinking! It’s personal. It’s fun! It’s a fantastic experience…

Free Event Consultation

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

Live conferences are not for everyone. To get the most value, you must be ready for the experience. If you come prepared with an open mind to learn and be challenged, you will take home great value. We believe that “if you are in the room, be in the room!“. If your mind is elsewhere, then you will miss things that may be important to you! Too often, business owners are working IN their business instead of ON their business. Attending live events takes valuable resources in time and money. Sometimes it’s simply more practical and cost-effective to do virtual events. Sometimes it’s better to do your own events. Talk to us and we can help you figure out the best direction. We understand the event business at the DNA level and we know what it takes to be successful. We have been running award-winning VIP conferences for over 15 years including partner conferences, end-user expos, road shows, virtual webinars, team building retreats, bootcamps, mastermind and corporate events. We know events…We even have a free guide that you can use to measure the ROI on any event – just ask for a copy.

Awesome Team!

We are all about the team!

Global Events Manager

Gerlinda started the ChannelNEXT Conferences over 15 years ago. When it comes to organizing corporate conferences, she has proven to be a rock star. She even organized the Apple Expo in Canada. Today, ChannelNEXT is one of the longest running channel conferences in the country and winners of numerous Reseller Choice Awards. Post event surveys rate the event at 97% for the past 5 years! The content, VIP and personal services makes all the difference. Gerlinda and her team listens to the delegates and are always evolving to best serve their needs.  These events are not trade shows but more educational and social networking experiences to facilitate relationship and partnership building. Watch what we are doing in 2018 as we take it to the next level with our “Mastermind” type experiences.

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 support teams, everyone executes their jobs with care and precision. Our inside team is constantly working on the events all year long to do activities such as find venues, invite attendees, develop content with many business coaches, grow vendor sponsorships and all of the things that go into making a successful event.
Mistakes are always an opportunity to learn and improve. We always push to do better. 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. Our post-event surveys are currently tracking our event team at 97% approval rating :o) 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 and MSPTrends), we also do many vendor partner exclusive events and road tours. We hope to see you at one of our next events!
