The Keynote Speakers are Top Notch
ChannelCon never fails to deliver unforgettable keynote speakers. This year’s speaker is General Stanley McChrystal, former commander of U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces in Afghanistan and the former commander of the Joint Special Operations Command. He will share the unique experiences and lessons he has learned in leadership through his military and post retirement career.
Ability to Personalize your Schedule
The wide variety of topics covered at ChannelCon allows you to personalize your experience based on your interests. In the agenda, you have the option to either choose between a track to follow or mix and match sessions from all the tracks to create your own schedule. These tracks include Biz Tech, Future Trends, Vendor Education and IT Pro powered by AITP. There are also networking breaks in between sessions, which lets you meet with colleagues, catch up on work or just relax!
Explore the Technology Vendor Fair
One of the most exciting things about ChannelCon is its Technology Vendor Fair, which buzzes every year with booths stuffed with a wide range of products, people and of course tchotkes. There are over 150 vendors participating in this year’s fair, making ChannelCon a great place to make connections and meet like-minded professionals. It’s always fun to see how people trick out their booths and what they do to attract foot traffic – you never know what you’ll find!
Mix and Mingle at the Offsite Party
Discover the history of the world’s foremost space program and the technology and innovation that made it possible to land a man on the moon! Join us at the ChannelCon 2018 party at the National Air and Space Museum on Wednesday, August 1 at 6:30 p.m. Co-hosted with the Smithsonian Institution, take advantage of this opportunity to view thousands of objects on display while you enjoy food and drink, music, simulation rides and more. Did we mention we’ll have the entire museum to ourselves?
While you’re in the area, take some time to explore all that D.C. has to offer. There’s a scheduled 5K Run/Walk on Wednesday morning, which is a great way to start your day with some fresh air and early morning views of the city. The Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel is located just steps away from the famous Dupont Circle, trendy shops, and exciting restaurants. And hopefully you get the chance to take in some of D.C.’s iconic landmarks throughout the week.
So don’t wait; register today! Engaging with an association like CompTIA is something to be proud of, and ChannelCon is the perfect place to sync up with us. You’ll reap big benefits from attending and the experience will be unforgettable.
