The ChannelPro Network, a media company dedicated to providing targeted business and technology information for IT channel partners who serve small and midsize businesses, is pleased to announce that Datto has signed on as a Diamond sponsor of the second annual Canadian IT Service Provider Online Summit on October 1, 2020. Datto is a leading provider of cloud-based software and technology solutions purpose-built for delivery through managed service providers (MSPs). 

For the second year in a row, the Canadian IT Service Provider Online Summit, hosted by ChannelPro and its IoT Playbook brand, will bring together industry experts and thought leaders for a full day of business-building education, best practices, and training. The content is specifically designed to offer proven best practices, practical instruction, and concrete recommendations that Canadian-based IT consultants, VARs, and MSPs need to create, sell, deliver, and profit from managed IT and security services.  

Targeted for a Canadian audience and featuring speakers from the Canadian IT channel, the show’s content will cover cloud and cybersecurity market trends, business growth strategies, operational best practices, and more. 

“We are grateful for the support of sponsors like Datto in our efforts to help channel pros across Canada stay on top of industry trends and position their businesses for the future, even in these uncertain times,” says Michael Siggins, president and publisher of The ChannelPro Network. “Our second Canadian IT Service Provider Online Summit will build on the foundation we laid last year, offering an even more innovative online platform where attendees can interact with our live panelists and network with their peers.”
