Silicon Slopes, Utah, Feb. 8, 2017—Global Partner Relationship Management (PRM) leader Impartner today announced the lineup of key industry thought leaders for its second annual customer conference, ImpartnerCON’17, including top IDC Channel Research Analyst Margaret Adam and channel strategy firm 2112 Group’s CEO and Chief Analyst Larry Walsh. Both Adams and Walsh will be addressing key channel industry trends and what actions top channel chiefs need to take to accelerate their indirect revenue in 2017 and beyond. This year’s conference, which will be held February 8-10 at the five-star Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, will draw three times as many attendees as the year before. This builds on the company’s explosive growth in 2016, which saw a 156 percent increase in new customers in a host of verticals from tech to manufacturing such as Splunk, Tektronix and Ingersoll Rand.
“At every level, 2016 was a sea change for Impartner and the PRM industry,” said Impartner CMO Dave R Taylor. “We’ve seen an absolute deluge of demand from top corporations worldwide, who have figured out that the secret sauce of unlocking the potential of their indirect channel is ensuring a contemporary PRM solution is a foundational element of their channel program.”
“To win 18 national and international awards, add blue chip customers at the rate we have, see our annual recurring revenue (ARR) climb to industry leading rates, have three times as many customers headed to our conference and have the number of partners signing into our portal climb to nearly 3 million in such a short amount of time, is an incredible testament to the power of PRM to transform the performance of our customers’ networks and to the team at Impartner to drive this growth,” added Taylor.
