If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Cloud Summit this past April (or perhaps you need a quick reminder), Scott Howell, Sr. Group Marketing Manager, Cloud Services at Ingram Micro sums up nicely why you won’t want to miss Cloud Summit 2014, in this 2-minute video clip:
Here are four reasons you should start making plans now to attend:
1. This is not a ‘death by Powerpoint’ conference. Unlike some of the vendor conferences you may have attended that use the term “educational session” as a ruse to get prospects in a room and push products via PowerPoint presentations, the Cloud Summit features paid outside speakers sharing their expertise and know-how in an engaging format.
2. You’ll receive lots of business development content. If you’re like most VARs and MSPs, you don’t need a technical deep dive on the dynamic elasticity of the cloud, you need help figuring out a step-by-step plan to incorporate specific cloud services into your business, plus assistance training salespeople, developing a marketing plan, and executing and refining your plan along the way. The Cloud Summit offers help in all these areas and more.
3. Engage with other channel business owners like yourself. Rather than merely taking an industry analyst’s or vendor’s advice about selling cloud services, you can engage with other IT solution providers who have made the transition to selling cloud services and bounce ideas and questions off of them and get the unfiltered truth about their experience.
4. Tech Fair. As the largest IT distributor in the world, Ingram Micro partners with the top technology vendors across a myriad of industries. Tech Fair is your opportunity to meet with these leading cloud vendors all in one convenient location.
Whether you’re a cloud computing veteran or a partner looking to grow your cloud business, you need to be at Ingram Micro’s Cloud Summit 2014. The Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida will host the largest cloud computing event in the channel on April 7-9, 2014. This is the one event you will not want to miss in 2014.
