Tech giants Dell, Google and Intel have lined up alongside The Sunday Times and Gartner to deliver a series of keynote addresses as part of an increased emphasis on discussion and education for Channel Expo 2009.
The show, held at the Birmingham NEC from May 20th to the 21st, has always featured forums for discussion in some capacity, however Incisive says this new thrust is in response to the economic climate, and is aimed to give visitors advice on how to cope.
Attendance for the trade show is free, will be available on a first come first served basis, and pre-registration numbers are approaching the 2,000 mark at the time of going to print.
“We are delighted to announce that so many visitors have signed up to attend Channel Expo,” said Mark Burton, channel publisher at Incisive Media. “This number is growing daily and is sure to spike when we detail our education programme, featuring business-focused keynote addresses from the likes of Dell, Intel, Google, VMware and Gartner.
"The message to resellers and retailers is register now."
