Summit audience

I am very excited to tell you that, for the first time, SiriusDecisions will include a dedicated channel sales and a channel marketing track at Summit. What are you looking to accomplish in the coming months? Do you need to modernize your channel program? Should you segment your channel partners to determine if today’s top performers will be tomorrow’s top performers? Or are you looking to get a better handle on how to use the partner business planning process to drive growth? All of these topics and more will be covered at the event.

Channel marketing leaders won’t want to miss sessions such as:

Channel sales leaders will be especially interested in these sessions:

  • Ensuring Quota Attainment Through Better Joint Partner Planning
  • Introducing the Partner Profitability Model: Building a Bidirectional Business Case
  • How to Evaluate and Segment Your Channel
  • Channel Sales Infrastructure: A Capabilities-Driven View of the Stack That Drives Growth

Summit is also your opportunity to meet and hear from the entire SiriusDecisions channel analyst team (we cover both channel sales and channel marketing), channel technology analysts and the channel consulting team. Our subject matter experts will be providing thought leadership and sharing best practices, and will be eager to swap stories about the channel issues you face. In fact, a new addition to this year’s Summit is a special channel networking breakfast designed to give channel marketing and channel sales leaders a great opportunity to meet the SiriusDecisions channel team and network with peers who share similar interests.

Channel marketing and channel sales leaders can also learn from Programs of the Year sessions featuring SiriusDecisions clients who will talk about how they teamed with SiriusDecisions to address key channel issues. And no channel leader will want to miss the session “What Really Counts in Channel Measurement.”
