Keeping in mind the annual plan of vendors/OEMs for the new fiscal year, CRN, a part of The Indian Express Group, will be launching a new platform,
CRN Channel Directions, an annual conference, the event would have a singular mission – to help vendors announce their channel plans that would in turn set directions for the channel community.

The Pan-India Channel Community will be represented by large and mid-sized system integrators, value-added resellers & distributors from the metros, and influential partners from Tier II & III cities. Besides the above, new age partners (for example, the ones born in the cloud or who possess expertise in a particular tech domain), will be represented at the event.
The two day off-site retreat will be held at Hyderabad on March 16-17, 2018.
