Events are an important part of who we are as an industry. We attend them to share what we know and to learn more about what we don’t. We also go to make personal connections with the people behind the companies and products who are central to our businesses. This is why you’ll see Pax8 at all national and many regional channel events each year. Our dedication to the channel goes far beyond providing MSPs with trusted cloud services to leverage toward booming business growth and a satisfied client base.


We are extremely excited that most of the events are back to being in-person this year. (Fingers crossed, of course.) There’s just a different energy when we can all get together. So, when you see us, stop by our booth, say hi, tell us your story, voice your thoughts and concerns, and share your ideas about where you see technology and channel is headed. We’re looking forward to seeing and chatting with you.
