Channel Strong Positive Vibes Tour Hitting the Road Again

The multivendor, traveling event is prepping for 10 stops through the Midwest in May. By ChannelPro

Road warriors from top channel companies are getting back on the Channel Strong Positive Vibes tour bus to meet up in a socially distanced way with MSPs throughout the Midwest starting Monday, May 17, in Nashville, Tenn.

Conceived last year by bvoip CEO George Bardissi and Ken Patterson, director of channel community for Pax 8, the Channel Strong Positive Vibes Tour was designed to safely reconnect with MSP partners in lieu of conferences and other in-person meetings during the pandemic. The tour is also supporting local food banks in each region of the tour, requesting that attendees bring at least two non-perishable food items to the outdoor get-together.

Channel Strong is led by industry experts covering topics such as cybersecurity, compliance, sales, marketing, and MSP growth hacks. The meet-ups are designed to offer practical advice to help MSPs future-proof their business and optimize existing channels.

  • Nashville, Tenn. -  Monday, May 17
