ChannelPro LIVE: Chicago Kicks Off Managed IT Services-Focused Events Series

Regional event in the Windy City brings together MSP peers and world-class vendors for networking opportunities and key educational sessions.

Are you an IT channel member looking to revolutionize your business strategies? Then mark your calendar for Feb. 28-29 to get a start on some of this year’s most pivotal gatherings.

ChannelPro will host eight dynamic events throughout the United States in 2024: seven ChannelPro LIVE gatherings and the ChannelPro DEFEND cybersecurity-centric event this summer. All ChannelPro events are free for qualified channel partners.

MSP Action in the Windy City

The first of this year’s series, ChannelPro LIVE: Chicago, will take place at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg in Illinois. This much-anticipated event on Feb. 28-29 will feature expanded networking time with world-class vendors and your MSP peers; exclusive deals; prizes; and fast-paced educational sessions.

This is a must-attend event for MSPs, VARs and channel partners looking to build profitable partnerships and accelerate revenue.

“ChannelPro LIVE events will feature curated content that addresses the top issues managed service providers, IT solution providers, consultants, and VARs care about: operational and business excellence, cloud services, cybersecurity, growth strategies, automation, marketing, and more,” said ChannelPro President Kelly Kocher. “We bring an interactive, informative, fun-filled atmosphere to their region, making it incredibly easy to network, learn about new tech, and grow business opportunities without spending too much time away from the office.”
