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

The Big Shift: Expanding Horizons 
Solution providers who place innovation and creativity at the heart of their business are participating in an era of unrivaled expansion — some call it the great channel expansion. To continue growing, these solution providers are investing in new services and value streams developed to meet the needs of today’s customers.
In addition, partners are concentrating on competitive differentiation. They are shifting their business models, embracing new managed services, software and service offerings, while identifying new markets to penetrate.
These journeys of growth — like frenetic amusement park rides — leave everyone with a story to share. These are tales of business and tech success. For partners looking to maintain the momentum or kickstart their expanison, XChange 2018 will provide a platform to broaden their horizons and envision the possibilities as they take on the challenges of tomorrow.
