GATES announces the date for the next India ICT Business Channel Summit: 25-27 September 2019 at HOLIDAY INN RESORT, GOA. Now in its fifth edition, GATES will bring together international technology vendors with channel executives from across India – those important Distributors, System Integrators and Resellers that drive the channel business forward in the country.
GATES’s proven concept creates an incredibly efficient business platform. The by-invitation-only event connects local channel executives with top international technology vendors. The unique format hosts an informative conference with leading industry voices, arranges pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings with innovative technology brands, and creates valuable networking opportunities.
A 3-Day Annual Summit, GATES provides ICT Vendors & Channel Executives with a range of benefits above and beyond a traditional trade show. Participants have the powerful opportunity to interact and engage with one another through a range of beneficial opportunities:
- Pre-scheduled One-on-One Meeting Format allows all participants to arrange meetings in advance to get the maximum value
- Inspiring and Informative Content: keynotes and workshops with market insights, business strategies, useful business cases and best practices
- Important Networking Opportunities where channel leaders can join their peer group, build new business relationships and hear first-hand from vendor executives and industry leaders
The GATES conference program will focus on the challenges and opportunities facing the B2B channel in India as the industry keeps pace with the digital transformation. Research partners IDC, SPIRE and NAVO will again provide key insight in presentations at the event. A series of interactive workshops will provide executives an opportunity to debate and strategize about important issues impacting India’s SME channel landscape.
GATES announces that TAITRA, Taiwan’s foremost non-profit trade promotion organization, will again partner with GATES India Summit to showcase the nation’s top ICT brands at the event. Each company holds the prestigious “Taiwan Excellence” designation, a mark to honor Taiwan’s most innovative and value-added products. Each year TAITRA recognizes select Taiwan-made brands through a rigorous selection process in four principal categories: design, quality, R&D and international marketing.
With hundreds of leading brands across multiple tech categories – from motherboards to memory, servers to software – Taiwan’s ecosystem plays an incredibly important role in the ICT industry. At GATES Summit, these vendors will have the opportunity to come together with India’s top system integrators, distributors and resellers through pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings. Established brands will support and grow their channel business at the event, while new-to-market vendors will look to establish new partnerships.
Ashish Kapahi, CEO at GATES, said, “Building relationships with key partners in the B2B channel ecosystem is critical to a vendor’s success in India. With this fifth event dedicated fully to the Indian market, GATES is continuing to play a critical role in bringing new partnerships together.” Ashish continued: “GOA is an ideal host city for the next GATES Summit. The city embodies the spirit of opportunity along with work-life balance creating a perfect environment for innovation. Add to that connectivity and physical infrastructure that are fast improving, and a supportive state government that’s trimming the red tape”.
GATES will once again host the prestigious ICT Industry Excellence Awards 2019 at the Gala Dinner. Through live electronic voting, channel partners will recognize vendors for their exceptional channel performance in India over the past year.
The event is being held from 25-27 September 2019 at the Holiday Inn Resorts in GOA.
