Incisive Media will launch a brand new industry event on May 12th called CRN Partner Connect Exhibition, and has secured some of the largest firms in the trade to support it, including Google, IBM, HP, Microsoft.
The one day event – held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry – will be made up of a trade show style exhibit hall and some themed seminars.
It is the spearhead of Incisive's wider CRN Partner Connect initiative, which will look to collate market news, white papers and vendor announcements into a single portal.
The firm insists this is an entirely new show, and not a redevelopment of Channel Expo, of which it was also organiser.
"Following extensive research with the industry we are pleased to announce CRN's brand new concept, CRN Partner Connect, which will bring together a broad spectrum of key channel players to improve communication and generate new business opportunities," said Alan Loader, Publisher, CRN.
"We aim to help the UK IT channel work together all year round by connecting them through our dedicated website full of exclusive content, whitepapers and vendor announcements, as well as our Partner Connect Exhibition taking place on May 12th which includes big name speakers and exhibitors from Google, IBM, HP, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Kyocera and Ricoh."
