The largest, independent gathering of 800+ of the IT channel’s premiere solution providers and technology vendors

XChange's ever-evolving and unmatched agenda has kept thousands of top executives from leading organizations coming back for the past two decades. These decision makers converge to learn and grow from peers, thought leaders and analysts. The actionable agenda focuses on the products, programs and business models making the biggest impact on the channel today.

In The Driver's Seat
How To Thrive in an Age of IT Acceleration
With the industry continuing its breakneck pace, solution providers must be firmly in control of their own destiny. IT integrators are emerging from a period of rapid business model transformation driven by a wave of disruptive technologies that caused customers to redefine IT deployment. The decision-making dashboard has clearly changed, and not everyone has the right information to adapt. Channel leaders are now confidently charting the digital road ahead, taking their partners and teams along for a wild ride. But they need modern skills to stay on course. Today’s most influential strategic service providers are mapping paths to accelerate solutions growth with new partners, cutting-edge talent, software-led innovations and new IT services. But getting there won’t be easy. No one wants to drive to the future in last year’s car. Discover the big picture of what’s ahead at XChange Solution Provider 2017 where attendees can engage with C-suite leaders, experts and peers.

Channel@Work

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.

This year, The Channel Company is proud to partner with Food for ALL DC a non-profit charity that strives to provide food to low income home-bound residents in real need. Our partner, vendor, and staff volunteers will meet Saturday, March 4th to sort, pack, and deliver food to families in need throughout the D.C. area.
