I got a note from my friends over at XChange about their new XChange+ event for 2020. It's next week. Online, of course, and free.
As them mention on the Channel Company blog:
The Channel Company is debuting a “reimagined” event model for solution providers with its XChange+ conference next week, which will include in-person events around the U.S. followed by a day of virtual sessions.
XChange+ 2020 will kick off with 11 regional events across the country, attended by 12 to 15 solution provider professionals at each. The limited attendance is part of protecting the health and safety of all participants and is just one of the many precautions being taken, according to executives at The Channel Company, which is the parent company of CRN.
The regional events are set for Aug. 18 and 19, with a virtual experience to follow on Aug. 20 that’s free for solution providers.
The Channel Company normally holds its in-person XChange conference in August. But amid the COVID-19 pandemic, “we needed to reimagine our events business,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company.
