Channel Live

11th - 12th September 2019

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.

Jabra opens SDK to external pertners

Jabra has unveiled its new partner-driven approach to solve the perennial productivity problem facing businesses across the world. While businesses continue to make significant investment in new technologies, this is having little impact on productivity and customer satisfaction rates, which continue to stagnate across advanced economies. One of the key reasons for the continued productivity problem is that many new business technologies lack embedded analytics, with only around one per cent of data being turned into useful insight.

Nimans introduces ‘Things’ proposition

Nimans is urging resellers to take advantage of supply solutions based on the Internet of Things. The company is inviting resellers to embrace the ‘Nimans of Things’ where all components of the communications supply chain can be sourced from one point – to open up a broader world of sales success.

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.

Paul Sherwood

Mark Bridgman, Service and Operations Director – Support UK

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.
