CompTia’s ChannelCon 2019
August 5-7 | Las Vegas, NV
A conference headlining Shaquille O’Neil doesn’t require much explanation to appear rather enticing. For this reason, CompTia ChannelCon tops the list of worthy tech conferences for Q3 2019 (that, and chronological order). But Shaq isn’t the only reason CompTia caught our eye… It’s a great opportunity for those belonging to Dynamic Communities or who utilize Dynamics applications to gain industry insight and network with industry peers. CompTia will recognize its Member of the Year and ChannelChangers—young professionals propelling industry innovation—during the conference, along with announcing recipients of their Advancing Women in Technology Spotlight awards.
