The largest, independent gathering of 800+ of the IT channel’s premier solution providers and technology vendors

XChange's ever-evolving and unmatched agenda has kept thousands of top executives from leading organizations coming back for the past two decades. These decision makers converge to learn and grow from peers, thought leaders and analysts. The actionable agenda focuses on the products, programs and business models making the biggest impact on the channel today.

Leading The Digital Journey
A Path to New Value & Customer Experiences

The road to success is paved with a strategic plan to move from reacting to customers to anticipating their next move. Along the way, paths must intersect, allowing solution providers to help clients learn and discover new and compelling business technology solutions. Those solutions must accelerate growth, create new revenue streams, simplify processes and speed innovation. This journey calls for a deliberate change in the way solution providers communicate and engage with customers when it comes to sales, marketing and support. Customers take the first step when they are trying to find what they want. It ends when they discover, with the help of a trusted partner, what they really need.

Channel@Work XChange 2016 - Giving Back To Our Heroes Through Patriotism

The Channel Company is proud to partner with Soldiers’ Angels for a day of patriotism and giving back to the brave men and women who have fought so gallantly for our freedom.  Over 200 low income veterans and their families were supported by the event, receiving 50 pounds of food each, including proteins, fruits and vegetables.  For this year’s event, Microsoft, the generous underwriter of this project, along with other XChange event sponsors, provided an IT lab for the veterans. Eligible veterans were also provided donated technology equipment, such as laptops and tablets, as well as a tutorial for their particular device. Tutorials covered basic computer skills and guidance on how to electronically access the services provided by Soldiers’ Angels. Attendees of the XChange conference volunteered to distribute food, provide tutorials, and create “No Sew” blankets that will be distributed to hospitalized veterans.
