The Canalys Channels Forums 2012 - Smarter mobile enterprise
The first Canalys Channels Forum APAC was judged a resounding success by attending channel partners. Vendor keynote sessions, theaters, workshops and over 1,200 one-to-one meetings made it a vibrant event and furthered important relationships in the industry. The IT channel community affirmed its critical role in driving the region's industry prosperity as partners help mid-market customers make strategic decisions and manage day-to-day IT operations. With this success, the Canalys Channels Forum has firmly established itself as the must-attend annual event for the region's partner community, with a high number of registrations already made for the 2013 event.
The fifth Canalys Channels Forum EMEA concluded on a high note as channel partners celebrated good revenue growth even as general economic conditions remained tough. The event was buoyed by this confidence, which drove higher than ever participation across more theaters, workshops, one-to-one meetings and richer keynote experiences. There were several firsts in the shape of the Channel Management Leadership panel and the dedicated Canalys Analyst Track. The Candefero Channel Partner of the Year awards were announced for the first time too.

- Where netbooks meet smart phones
The inaugural Canalys Mobility Forum EMEA successfully brought together more than 100 delegates from the PC and mobile phone industries, including software and hardware vendors, mobile operators, channel partners, and the media, to hear the latest market analysis from Canalys and pose questions to panels of industry experts. This unique event, focused on the convergence of the PC and phone industries, and specifically the dynamics around netbooks and smart phones, delivered valuable insight and prompted lively debates as the participants shared their different perspectives.
