MES is the Midmarket IT executive event of the year. No other event can offer IT decision makers with exclusive access to more than 60 top vendors, seasoned Gartner analysts and an elite group of peers. Our unique format enables attendees to maximize their valuable time out of the office by building significant relationships and gaining critical knowledge – in one trip. Working with Gartner, our strategic collaborator, enables us to deliver – without question – the industry’s best content available to the single largest annual gathering of midmarket CIOs. Expertly curated content includes demonstrations of cutting-edge products, services and new technology solutions designed to boost productivity and accelerate ROI. Senior-level IT executives leave this two and a half-day conference with the latest research, technology advancements and innovative best practices needed to build forward-looking IT strategies.
CIOs and senior IT leaders must emerge as savvy influencers and become trusted allies to the business owners who have gained more control over IT purchases. To survive this shift, CIOs must position themselves as the ultimate business innovators driving a competitive advantage with tech solutions while viewing the business holistically. They must be central to the shift in how employees, suppliers and customers perceive and realize the value of IT to benefit from it every day. The job today is to get the whole enterprise behind you then help lead everyone through the big shift.

Channel@Work is our way of giving back to the community that has given us so much over the past three decades. This charitable arm of The Channel Company’s events group is designed to bring the IT community together to connect and give back to the local communities that host our events.
Our team identifies local charities and coordinates efforts with our committed vendors, solution providers and IT executives to contribute time and donations to make an impact for a worthy cause. At MES Spring 2017, we will be supporting Soles4Souls, headquartered in Nashville, TN. Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.
We will be supporting their mission by holding a shoe drive onsite at MES. So please remember to pack an extra pair of shoes (used, new, men's, women's, children's are all accepted!) and drop them off at the Soles4Soles collection bins located by the MES onsite registration desks.
