What are the
Canalys Forums?

The Canalys Forums are major independent events for IT channel partners across EMEA, APAC and LATAM. The events bring together major technology vendors, distributors and resellers to discuss industry trends, forge new business relationships and create sales opportunities. Our emphasis on high-quality content, top-level speakers and innovative ideas and platforms has enabled us to grow and become the world's largest independent IT channel events!

Canalys Channels Forum

An exclusive event for channel community leaders in APAC, EMEA and LATAM.
Canalys is acknowledged as the foremost analyst firm in channels research and from this, we have created a unique experience for attendees. CCF gives the IT channel the opportunity to meet with the most senior executives from multiple top technology vendors in one place over just a few days. Established for over a decade, the forums are the critical connection point for the channel community in each region. Thousands of introductions and reunions take place at scheduled 1:1 meeting. Even more relationship building takes place during fitness sessions, over breakfasts, lunches and happy hours, creating many millions of dollars-worth of opportunities. The events are also a place for independent and impartial presentations, delivering insights, vision and inspiration, as well learning experiences for all delegates. Sessions are kept short and snappy to optimize attendees’ time.

Venue

The channel comes together in the luxurious surroundings of one of Bogota’s very best hotels.

We are inclusive

Canalys’ Rising Stars program is an initiative across its forums that aims to ensure a more diverse group of attendees at the Canalys Forums and contributes to closing the gender gap and diversity deficit in the technology industry.
Barriers to access the Canalys Forums are lowered with the provision of fully-funded places for nominees from distributors and channel partners where budgets might be a major inhibitor to attendance. This program will allow Rising Stars to connect with more senior executives across companies to form long-lasting industry contacts, providing them with opportunities to build on knowledge and experience.

Channel Partner of the Year awards

The prestigious Candefero Channel Partner of the Year awards recognize partners that demonstrate excellence in particular areas. Anyone can nominate a channel partner, including vendors, distributors and the partners themselves. Winners are announced and celebrated in a short high-energy session for all attendees at each forum.
