As one of the premiere Channel events for MSPs, VARs and IT business owners, the 3rd annual Datto Partner Conference is set to be one of the most fulfilling and exciting IT gatherings of the year. The Conference is designed to equip Datto Partners and prospects with the necessary tools, resources and networking opportunities to drive and grow their individual businesses. With more than two decades of experience in the information technology sector, Jones will deliver to the 500+ attendees strategies on creating a step-by-step plan to help generate ideas and do more with less, to drive greater success. “We’re grateful to welcome such an accomplished entrepreneur and innovative business mind like Terry Jones to the Datto Partner Conference,” stated Rob Rae, Datto Vice President of Business Development. “His experience will be a great benefit to our Partners who seek guidance and advice on effectively transforming and growing their businesses to new heights.”

As the founder of Travelocity.com, Jones led the company as President and CEO for six years guiding the brand to a $3 billion public company. After Travelocity, Jones co-founded Kayak.com and now serves as the company’s Chairman. Currently Jones serves as a consultant in e-commerce, sought-after speaker and venture capitalist with General Catalyst and Sierra Angels along with serving as a board member for several companies. Rounding out the Conference, Datto will again offer the popular two-track breakout session for attendees to gain training and actionable content in both Sales & Marketing and Technical specializations.

Each track will focus on issues and topics affecting MSPs and VARs such as the importance of a comprehensive data protection offering, go-to-market strategies, sales initiatives, product demos, technical support and more. In addition to Jones, Datto Founder and CEO Austin McChord and other leading Channel experts will grace the stage during the three-day gathering. Advanced Technical Training will also be available at the conclusion of the conference, on June 18-19, offering Partners two-days of hands on training and certification on the Datto solutions. Rae added, “The average attendee will grow their business 30% within 3 months of the conference and those who complete Advanced Training submit, on average, 50% less tickets. This conference was created to educate Partners and that’s exactly what it does, so having Jones keynote only adds value and importance for attendance.”
