The upcoming Cloud Conventions 2021 Virtual Trade Expo will be much more than the usual channel event.
With the theme of “Navigating the Next Normal,” the May 12 to 14 Expo will focus on how the telecom/cloud channel, along with IT services, are going to play a pivotal role in the world economy as we emerge from the shadow of COVID-19.
The channel represents access to resources and opportunities to improve how we do business in the coming decade. In the past, channel trade events have focused on only one or two technologies and failed to educate channel partners on what the big picture can be for them to serve an even larger audience, with better resources.
Phone services, internet connectivity, fiber optics and SD-WAN dominate, but in reality, the focus needs to be on proposing new solutions that fit the business environment that the pandemic has left us with.
In addition, Cloud Conventions 2021 will help them expand their own business practice and understand where it can go, if and when you want to sell it.
Each one of the pavilions of Cloud Conventions 2021 offers an increasing range of knowledge that every channel partner should explore. The technology behind this unique event is designed to showcase not just products but the education needed to sell, implement and service to make you as a partner or reseller more valuable to your customers.
Cloud Conventions 2021 is built on the next generation virtual event platform that redefines the exhibitor experience to allow companies to provide easy access to in-depth product information, showcase their brand with graphics and videos, create calls to action and generate immediate sales leads.
“Everyone had to quickly pivot to virtual events in 2020, but there was a lack of focus on motivational design that resulted in boring, uninspired attendee experiences,” said Carolyn Bradfield, CEO of Convey Services. “Virtual events often deliver a stream of self-promoting webinars packaged and sold as a virtual event, when they’re really just a bunch of webinars. Cloud Conventions 2021 provides one of the most unique pavilion environments, coupled with content devoted to business strategy and opportunities for attendees to connect with their peers and exhibitors. Effective events need to inform, educate and engage, not just lecture. We keep attendees engaged and interested, connect them to others and give all parties a return on investment for both their time and money.”
