Post Show Report 2013


Even though 2013 started with industry pundits expressing a lot of optimism about increased IT spending this year, it’s events that unfolded during the course of the year and were exacerbated by the decline in PC hardware sales in the first three quarters, that dampened the gains that the industry made in 2012.

2013 was also a year in which technology and business transformations were propelled by advances in cloud computing, virtualisation, networking and mobility and made it more critical for channel executives and organisations to step-up with game- changing contributions to  the wellbeing of their businesses.

The Channel Middle East Conference 2014 will allow you to network with IT industry peers and experts, and hear from thought leaders on how the business innovation currently underway in the regional channel will spur growth in the region.


The Channel Middle East conference brings together the cream of the region’s IT channel. This invitation-only conference is the biggest event of its kind. and attendance is by invitation only, representing the decision makers across the industry.

As such, it is an ideal place to position your brand, meet potential customers and existing clients. To ensure sponsors get the maximum return from their investment, sponsorship opportunities are limited.
