A Health & Safety Event Initiatives Update From Our CEO


At The Channel Company, the health and safety of our employees and the technology channel community that we serve is, and has always been, a top priority. As we progress through 2021, we realize it’s a huge responsibility for us as a leader in the IT channel to set the health and safety standard as we move forward with our live conferences.

We have listened to our event attendees who are eager to get back on the road and meet in-person, and The Channel Company has great respect for the trust that comes with hosting a live event. Our events team has worked tirelessly to develop initiatives to protect the well-being of our event attendees, sponsors, staff and operational personnel, while maintaining the integrity of the event experience that you have come to expect from The Channel Company.

Our conferences may look a little different than they have in the past, including the addition of digital extensions, but I am confident in our team and the plan that we’ve prepared to bring the IT channel safely back together to connect, transact and learn. For complete details, please click on the button below to view our Health & Safety Initiatives document.

The Channel Company maintains its commitment to closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and we will continue to ensure the best health and safety practices are being implemented. As new information and guidance becomes available, we promise to adapt quickly and appropriately, keeping your safety and comfort top-of-mind.

We are confident that we can welcome you safely to our events and we hope that you join us in 2021. We understand that some may not be ready or able to come see us in-person, but we will be here for you when you are. We appreciate your continued support. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely, Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company
