Candefero - Canalys' online channels community       

Authorised channel partners can join Canalys’ online channels community and forum, Candefero, which gives the opportunity to provide feedback directly to global channel leaders through sentiment trackers, polls and opinion surveys. This knowledge sharing from the channel partners is fed into the research provided in Canalys’ services and consulting.  

Canalys Channels Forum

Our unique relationship with several thousand partners forms the basis of Canalys’ acclaimed annual CCF events. The Canalys Channels Forum events bring together major technology vendors, distributors and resellers to discuss industry trends, forge new business relationships and create sales opportunities. The events are held across EMEA, APAC and LATAM.  

The Canalys Channels Forum was awarded Silver prize for the best 'Corporate Event' in the Conference Award 2017!

"Excellent detail in entry - equal focus on the "big picture" but also the smaller details making the event memorable for participants.”

 "The creative and digital focus is key in this event, as is keeping it fresh for the attendees with new ideas coming through (yoga and running groups). They also listen to feedback from their sales channel and react. Given the nature of the event the 1:1 meetings and networking events are a dissect as per the feedback. Great event organising.”

The Canalys Event App is a white-label solution, specifically developed for tech vendors and their channel partners to use at their own, highly influential partner events. We pride ourselves to have developed the Canalys Event App from the expertise in event app development that we have built in-house over the past decade.
