Channel Partners Conference 2015 – Report One

This is the first report of two I’m doing on the Channel Partners Conference in Vegas last week.

The primary reason I attended is that many, many, people at the Channel Pro SMB event in Baltimore kept asking me if I was going.

I went a little early and connected with some folks. Then I stayed a little late and caught up with some others. I always recommend that strategy, as opposed to rushing in and rushing out. A lot of the “good stuff” at any conference takes place around the edges.

Zynstra and CloudMSP team (and Karl)

I was lucky enough to connect up with the whole Zynstra Hybrid Cloud team. They were in town for an HP Global Partner conference. Here we are at the MGM.

Pictured here are Daniel Langton (CloudMSP), me, James Tuff (Zynstra), Andrew Morlidge (Zynstra), Nick East (Zynstra), Rhett Ryder (Zynstra), and Jeff Ponts (CloudMSP).
