Management Level, Channel Organizations
The UK Managed Services Summit 2020 is a management-level event designed to help channel organizations identify opportunities arising from the increasing demand for managed and hosted services and to develop and strengthen partnerships aimed at supporting sales.
The summit would feature a “high-level” conference program exploring the impact of new business models and the changing role of information technology within modern businesses. These conference sessions will be augmented by breakout sessions within which leading vendors and service providers will provide further insight into the opportunities for channel organizations looking to expand their managed services portfolios.
“In the face of accelerating technological advance and the increasing complexity this creates, more and more organizations are opting to focus precious resources on their core competencies by outsourcing the delivery, maintenance and management of their IT infrastructure to MSPs,” said Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. “This is creating huge opportunities, but to compete successfully in creating value for their customers, MSPs will need to adapt and evolve to ride the latest waves of technological advance to ensure they can deliver real value.”
Throughout the event, there will also be many opportunities for both sponsors and delegates to meet fellow participants within the Summit exhibition and networking area.
“The Managed Services Summit is the UK’s leading managed services event for the channel,” said Stephen Whitehurst, CEO at Angel Business Communications. “It provides a unique opportunity for vendors, VARs, integrators and service providers to come together to address the issues and opportunities arising from the surge in customer demand for managed services and hosted delivery models.”
