“MSPWorld this fall will be very unique, compared to previous events and without question, is the single most important gathering for industry executives,” said Charles Weaver, CEO of MSPAlliance. “Not only will attendees be able to engage the foremost industry leaders ever assembled under one roof, but also benefit from education on and access to the most cutting edge cloud and managed services technology.”

The conference agenda covers a variety of topics that MSPs and their customers confront every day, such as: pricing models; marketing & sales practices; strategies for evaluating vendors; and numerous technical training sessions.

The industry is at a crossroads; MSPWorld will serve as the platform to create even more transparency and accountability to the end-user organizations that are in desperate need of these solutions,” added Weaver

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) who attend MSPWorld will leave the conference better equipped to address the needs of their customers, as well as armed with myriad opportunities for business development.”
