The Alliance's Tech+Connect 2.0 Channel Event Offers Dramatically Different Sales Empowerment
for Next-Gen Services

Tech+Connect 2.0

RICHMOND, Va. – April 13, 2018 For its second-annual Tech+Connect event, taking place Nov. 5-7 at the Scott Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz., The Alliance Partners will once again host an exclusive group of channel partners and a roster of top providers in emerging technology segments, for three days of unique channel sales empowerment for next-generation solutions.

The show is devoted to bringing together experienced channel sales professionals with providers of advanced technology solutions in a dynamic and intimate setting, for sales training around the hottest emerging technology segments. It is a forum for unexpected ideas, unconventional speakers and uncommon learning, with the goal of providing deep provider-partner engagement, unparalleled empowerment and extraordinary business impact.

As an 'Un-Event', Tech+Connect leaves behind packed expo hall aisles and the countless (and useless) me-too pitches from providers. Rather than brag about feature sets, providers at Tech+Connect are charged with discussing specifically how to sell their services, providing next-generation tools, tips and real-world techniques for channel partners that can be taken home and applied immediately to grow emerging tech practices.

After a stunningly successful inaugural event last November, Tech+Connect this year will provide an even smarter and more intuitive experience. Highlights for the 2018 program include:

  • More time for optimal partner/provider interaction
  • Effective and engaging content, delivered in a true "how to sell" format
  • Partner involvement in the program delivery
  • Staggered sessions to provide collaboration and relationship-building time
  • Facilitated learning in a relaxed environment

"Tech+Connect is dramatically different than any other channel event out there," said Alliance CEO Bill Power. "We are redefining how providers and partners interact with each other, giving partners best-in-class next-gen tools for sales empowerment that can't be found anywhere else, and offering leading providers of emerging, innovative services an opportunity to align with the country's top sales professionals—all within a non-traditional structure that's designed to provide results."

Tech+Connect is an invitation-only event. For more information, or to be considered for an invitation, please visit or contact:
