May 8, 2014 (NORWALK, CT) – Datto, one of the leading global vendors of award-winning hybrid cloud-based intelligent business continuity and backup, disaster and recovery (BDR) solutions, is happy to announce its 2nd annual Datto Partner Conference, slated for June 3-6 at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
Following up on a successful inaugural event, the 2014 conference will welcome approximately 500 Datto Partners from across the United States, Canada and Europe for the three-day gathering. “The conference is a great opportunity for our Partners, Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Value Added Resellers (VARs) to learn all facets of expanding their business and knowledge base from IT thought leaders, Channel sales and marketing experts, and their peers,” said Austin McChord, Datto CEO and Founder. “One of the best parts is the ability for myself and some of the Datto workforce to meet with our Partners in person.”
Themed ‘No Boundaries’, attendees will be exposed to the newest trends in the Channel and hear first-hand from McChord on the future of Datto and what the Partner-base can expect from the fast growing technology vendor. The 3-day gathering will also host business owners interested in learning more about the Channel, the BDR and Business Continuity industry and Datto’s leading solutions.
Quickly becoming one of the premiere events in the information technology (IT) community, the 2014 Datto Partner Conference will provide keynotes and presentations from leading experts and professionals. This year’s speaker lineup features Jeffrey Ma (Business Strategist, MIT Blackjack Kingpin, inspiration behind the movie ’21′), Paul Sagan (former Akamai CEO, current Vice Chairman), Arlin Sorensen (Founder/CEO of HTG Peer Groups) and more! “It’s always a privilege to network with our Partners,” stated Rob Rae, Datto Vice President of Business Development. “We designed the conference to equip Partners with all the necessary tools to further grow their businesses and client base, along with surprises. Attendees will find the time away from the office resourceful, a major return on investment, and a fun time.”
New to this year’s agenda are free breakout sessions for all registrants focused in either the Sales & Marketing track or Technical track. Each will highlight and discuss common issues that affect MSPs and VARs such as ‘Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Go-to-Market Sales Strategies’ and ‘How to Market the Cloud’ in the Sales & Marketing track, while ‘Solving the Top 10 Support Tickets’ and ‘Learn the Disaster Demo in Detail’ headline the technical sessions. Datto’s hands-on, two-day Advanced Technical Training Academy will precede the Conference. Numerous IT companies have signed on as sponsors including LogMeIn and GFI MAX as Platinum Sponsors while HP, Modern Office Suite, JetStream, Autotask, Vertical Axion and AVG round out the Gold Sponsorships.
