Last Thursday, Meraki participated in a great event: the Ingram Micro Partner Connections Summit in Denver, Colorado.
The most remarkable observation that could be made was the clear presence of a sense of optimism throughout the conference after a year of apprehension. We spoke to a good portion of the 225 resellers at the event, and the majority were very excited about the remainder of 2009 and 2010 based on the uptick in the level of interest that they are seeing from their customers across their product lines. They see wireless networking as a potential growth opportunity for them for 2010, and more specifically, Meraki’s cloud-managed Wireless LANs as a great opportunity to acquire new customers or offer an innovative new solution to existing customers.
A little bit more about the event… Ingram Micro, the event organizer and sponsor (and a distributor of Meraki), is a Fortune 100 company and the world’s largest technology distributor. They distribute and market IT products from everyone from Apple to Cisco.
The Partner Connections Summit brings together hundreds of fast-growth channel partners and IT manufacturers to discuss emerging IT trends, train on new technologies and explore a variety of partner enablement tools available exclusively to Ingram Micro channel partners. We truly enjoyed meeting so many IT Solution Providers focused on small and medium sized businesses, and we look forward to other Ingram Micro and similar channel events in the near future!
