Channel Live

See you next year! 22nd - 23rd September 2020 | The NEC, Birmingham

Channel Live was launched in 2017 to provide an environment for channel suppliers and resellers wishing to future proof their business and expand their product and service portfolios, whilst building essential business partnerships. Channel Live remains a trade only conference, exhibition, thought leadership and networking event.

Only at Channel Live can dealers, resellers, VARS, managed service providers, system integrators and other channel partners openly discuss margin opportunities with vendors and solution providers.

This is the UK’s only exhibition and conference for the ICT channel.

Channel Live will return next year, 22nd - 23rd September 2020 at the NEC, Birmingham.


See you next year!

Save the date! Channel Live will return to the NEC next year, 22nd - 23rd September 2020.

Cisco to open Channel Live!

Doors will open at 09:30 to give you access to seminar theatre one, where at 09:45 Craig Decker Global Sales Leader, Cloud and Hosted Communications, will deliver a keynote presentation.

Channel Live has proven to be a fantastic vehicle for generating leads, building awareness and positioning our business as a key supplier to the ICT channel. Just three months after the event, we have achieved 106% return on our investment, with a number of opportunities still in the pipeline. 2017’s event achieved over 1,500% ROI, so there is no question that we will be back for 2019.

Ellie Allseybrook, Head of Business Growth, Inform Billing

Channel Live was a great event for us to exhibit at. We’ve already received an ROI from work we’ve brought in following discussions we had at the event. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of days, making some great connections.

Stephen McIntyre, Chief Marketing Officer, Nimans

Nimans is delighted to continue our long-standing support of Channel Live, particularly after the success of last year, where around 70% of our leads were converted into sales. We look forward to engaging further with our reseller community - alongside key vendor partners - as we showcase how Nimans continues to evolve as a complete service and supply specialist.
