We closed out our previous CloudBlue Connect (formerly called APS Partner Connect) with a quote about less talk and more action.

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” –Walt Disney

And our partners have delivered. Since the event in January, our partners have displayed both speed and momentum in accelerating their success. In fact, two of our partners, Advania and Casanet, won Partner of the Year from Microsoft.

Advania, a leading Nordic IT-provider serving thousands of corporate clients, attended CloudBlue Connect and Cloud Manager Daniel Albertsson noted how the event offered “fantastic possibilities to engage with other partners and see what’s happening around the ecosystem of Ingram Micro.”

Casanet, a unique cloud computing marketplace in Morocco, was recognized as the fastest growing CSP Microsoft partner in Morocco.

Nothing makes us happier than seeing our partners succeed and that’s what CloudBlue Connect is all about. With every event, we make improvements to ensure you walk away with applicable insights and invaluable connections.


Expect even more this year.

At our 14th annual event, we have a jam-packed agenda featuring industry experts, high-caliber service providers, and Ingram Micro executives, including Richard Dufty, Nimesh Dave, and David Wippich.

We are also excited to announce that Formula One executive Mark Gallagher will join us as a keynote speaker, and share how some of the major principles behind F1’s strategic success, such as embracing digitalization and managing change, can be applied to your business.

On the second day, you can attend interactive breakout sessions focused on applying what you learned on the first day to your specific business needs. That way, you can implement high-level strategies and insights for your business to start growing your revenue immediately.

After attending CloudBlue Connect, you’ll be ready to put the winning solutions, connections and knowledge gained into practice.


Expand your network.

It’s true: Your network is your net worth. You may be just one connection away from serious business growth, and CloudBlue Connect gives you plenty of opportunities to make those all-so-important connections with all the right people.

Learn how our partners are applying specific CloudBlue features and services to accelerate their business. Talk to ISVs about bundling services. Chat with our CloudBlue execs about what’s next on the horizon. With more time allocated for strategic networking, the possibilities are endless.


Keep the celebration going.

There’s never a lack of fun at a CloudBlue event. After all, lasting connections are built through work and play, and there won’t be a shortage of either. We’ll be toasting to your success and announcing an exciting, new deal that will show you how to take advantage of our three-pillar services model to accelerate your speed to market with minimal resources.

A little luxury doesn’t hurt, either. CloudBlue Connect will take place at the impressive Roomers Autograph Collection Hotel, which serves as the perfect backdrop for your time in Munich.

Sign up today and get your business acceleration started. We’ll see you there.
