Panelists shared their experiences, insights, and best practices. In addition, MSPs, IT consultants, VARs, and integrators had the opportunity to browse the virtual vendor expo.

When asked for his thoughts, ChannelPro Editorial Director Jonathan Browning said, “Live events are always consequential. Even in a virtual format, it’s a golden opportunity to interact with real people, learn business-building tips, and get important questions answered.”
