Warrington, 22 May 2019 – SYNAXON UK, the leading channel services group for resellers, managed services providers, independent retailers and office products dealers, has announced the line-up and sponsors for its annual member conference, which takes place at the Jury’s Inn Hotel Hinckley on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 June 2019.

The theme of the annual gathering of key players in the channel is New Horizons – building a better future with SYNAXON and will be focus principally on the new and far-reaching investment that SYNAXON AG is making in the UK operation.

This year SYNAXON is promising delegates a new conference experience, centred around smaller and intimate access to our vendor and distribution partners and a greater emphasis on workshops. Frank Roebers, CEO of SYNAXON AG will be making a keynote address and the entire expanded SYNAXON UK team will be there as well, along with some of the biggest names in the channel.

Ingram Micro is this year’s main sponsor and Tim Suhling, VP Global Business Intelligence will be discussing the importance and value of data for channel in today’s market. Microsoft has signed as a Gold sponsor and will be there in force to talk to members about its on-going CSP programme, which Synaxon is making available to members through its Cloud-IQ portal. Continuum has also signed as a Gold sponsor and will be promoting its management platform for MSPs at the conference.

Another highlight will be a special talk by VIP Guest Speaker, Gerald Ratner. The riches to rags and back to riches entrepreneur is known for speaking with candour and a great deal of humour about his roller-coaster journey. While he may be ranked top in The Sun’s list of the ‘50 biggest mistakes of all time’, Ratner’s story shows how businesses and individuals can – even having been through the most difficult and challenging conditions – revive their fortunes and triumph. He is expected to share his views on what really makes great customer service.
