NexGen Conference & Expo 2018

Managed services are at the heart of the IT solution provider business, generating a staggering $158 billion in sales. Partners at the forefront of managed services are rapidly expanding by offering customers new services and solutions. NexGen caters to this critical segment of the channel, with a conference custom designed for elite services-led and cloud-focused managed services professionals.

These MSPs — whether pure play or mainstream IT service providers — are a step ahead of the pack. They are changing the game. Their focus is to drive recurring revenue, increase margins and add strategic partners. 

MSPs attend NexGen to:

  • Stay ahead of technology services and industry trends

  • Identify strategic partners to fuel their growth

  • Engage with peers for feedback and validation of their strategies
