Leaders and senior management will connect and discover actionable insights into the channel's most critical issues and opportunities, allowing them to challenge the status quo and optimize their strategies and businesses.

This year’s conference is packed with more content than ever before. From pre-conference education sessions to additional breakouts, attendees will walk away with learnings on topics spanning globalization and the future of route-to-market to reaching the consumer and attracting the right talent.
