In-Depth Industry Research

Each year, CompTIA provides at least 15 new comprehensive industry research studies, all of which is provided for free to our members. Our research benchmarks business strategies, attitudes and technology preferences to help you create your business plans. We analyze IT trends and technologies to help you decide what is right for your business.

Members have access to all of our archived research.

Targeted Networking Opportunities

CompTIA members have myriad opportunities for networking, whether it is a small, targeted forum to discuss issues specific to your business type or large conferences to connect with others in the IT channel.

Our annual ChannelCon conference brings together more than 1,100 industry executives together to learn new ways to grow their businesses, gain insight into the latest IT trends and form new partnerships. Our industry-specific executive forums bring together industry leaders to discuss issues and establish standards for the industry.

Impactful Leadership and Advocacy

CompTIA addresses key public policy issues with both a regional and global focus. CompTIA gives the IT industry a strong voice in government — facilitating government roundtables, testifying before Congress, and publishing position papers on proposals that directly affect the industry. Our representatives speak before governments, the media and influential groups to stress the IT perspective in public policy discussions. We have public policy offices in Washington D.C., Brussels and Hong Kong.
