About Us

Channel Live is produced by Miles Publishing (under the Mark Allen Group). Miles Publishing also produces Comms Business Magazine; the UK’s leading ICT trade magazine.

Channel Live was launched in September 2017 and saw a very sucessful inaugural event which attracted over 3000 attendees. Channel Live is a trade only conference, exhibition, thought leadership and networking event rolled into one. It’s engaging, educational, inclusive, fun and most importantly, provides the perfect environment for companies wishing to future proof their business and expand their product and service portfolios, whilst building essential business partnerships.

“What an utterly brilliant show. The new channel gold standard event.”
– Andrew Dickinson, Jola
