The sixth Channel Link Partner Conference scheduled for September 17-19 has the theme “Bringing You Together, Better.” The Tech Data  event at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel in Anaheim, CA will give more than 500 IT resellers business development opportunities including networking, education, and training.

Channel Link will address key areas to help solutions providers grow their businesses, including cloud, consumer technology, digital signage, healthcare IT, mobility, and SMB. The event also features “Technology Zones,” “Tech Data Pavilions,” and a technology expo with the latest product offerings.

Educational opportunities include business development courses and business connection workshops. Channel Link features business enablement sessions in which Tech Data executives show solutions providers how to leverage Tech Data support and services to grow their businesses. During these sessions, solutions providers will learn how to expand their capabilities without having to increase overhead.

Additionally, the “Women in the Channel” session provides an opportunity to discuss best practices and experiences with successful and influential women in leadership, and it features a keynote from Paige Powers, director, Cisco Distribution Sales, Americas.

Joe Quaglia, senior VP, U.S. marketing and president, TDMobility at Tech Data, says, "The core of Channel Link offers our solutions providers the best education sessions, hands-on training, networking opportunities, and entertainment.” Quaglia says entertainment highlights of the conference include the opportunity to hear a keynote address from Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak and to enjoy the comedy of Jason Alexander.

"Channel Link is one of the most valuable events in the channel because of the education and enablement tools I receive to successfully build my business," said Dana Jacks, VP of sales at Data Strategy. "At Channel Link, I have the opportunity to connect with key vendors and learn from my peers in the industry, as well as learn new ways to leverage the support of Tech Data. I look forward to another successful, fun event."
