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. Now more than ever, we extend our sincerest thanks to those who choose to attend and sponsor our events. The Channel Company values your participation and has great respect for the trust that comes with hosting a live event.

In 2021, our events team worked tirelessly to develop health and safety 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 us. And we pledge to continue this level of dedication throughout 2022.

As such, we will be requiring all participants to be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination to attend our events. “Fully vaccinated“ means two weeks after the second dose in a two-dose vaccine series, such as Pfizer or Moderna; or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson.

I am confident in our team and the plan that we’ve prepared to bring the IT channel safely together to connect, transact and learn. For complete details, please click the button below to read our Health & Safety Initiatives document.

The Channel Company maintains its commitment to closely monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 and all its variants, and we will continue to ensure that our events implement the best health and safety practices possible. As new information and guidance become available, we promise to adapt quickly and appropriately, keeping your safety and comfort top of mind.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to having you join us in 2022.


Sincerely, Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company
