SMB Nation, the well-respected technology channel community, has awarded its 6th annual Spring Conference to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It‟s part of SMB Nation‟s on-going worldwide SMB channel partner outreach to engage and extend the success of its tribal membership. "We are thrilled to freshen our Spring conference with impactful content that is first technical and second business-focused." Shared Harry Brelsford, CEO of Seattle-based SMB Nation. "We have brought in the best and brightest technical and business minds for an amazing two-day professional conference. We have speakers delivering unique content on Small Business Server 2011, cloud and hybrid computing, managed services provider (MSP) business models and important „BusinessSpeak‟ topics such as increasing technology sales."
Speakers were selected in a competitive process where an authoritative content selection committee vetted a large number of papers to select the more relevant content. The resulted in Microsoft MVPs, published authors, accomplished CEOs and surprisingly successful MSPs speaking from the stage. The conference is well supported by enthustatic sponsor community including D&H Distributing, Microsoft, Intel, AppAssure and many other familiar names.
"First and foremost, we are community. We‟re from the community producing a community event supported by the community and attended by community members. How cool is that?" Brelsford exclaimed. "Beyond the amazing SMB Nation staff and tribal membership, we have enjoyed fantastic support from like-minded similar communities including the MVPs, user groups, trade associations and other affinity entities. And most importantly, we really recognize and realize the warm welcome we‟ve already received and Toronto and hope that our efforts satisfy the hunger of the Canadian SMB technology community!"
