WESTBOROUGH, Mass.

The Channel Company announced that it will be hosting its industry-leading Midsize Enterprise Summit: Fall (MES Fall) from September 16-19, 2018 in San Diego, Calif. The customer event is the largest independent gathering of midmarket CIOs and senior IT executives, and features a wide range of speakers who are experts on the midmarket.

This year’s theme, “Differentiate and Win,” will focus on the pressure on midmarket CIOs and senior IT executives to out innovate their rivals by selecting and implementing advanced technology that will boost their business past the competition and provide true value to customers, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders.

“More than 200 midmarket CIOs and senior IT executives join together at MES Fall looking for technological solutions and business strategies that will create a bright future for their organizations,” said Robert DeMarzo, senior vice president, event content and strategy, The Channel Company. “To us, MES takes some of the burden off these CIOs and senior executives by directly connecting them with today’s leading technology suppliers and analysts – all under one roof. From our view, they leave the conference with everything that they need to ‘differentiate and win’ the battle against the competition.”

The two-and-a-half-day summit is designed to help midmarket executives learn about the latest IT industry opportunities, trends, and innovative solutions. This year’s MES Fall 2018 agenda (https://www.thechannelco.com/events/midsize-enterprise-summit-fall/agenda#agenda) will connect CIOs and senior IT executives with the IT industry’s leading technology suppliers, developers, and solution providers through numerous networking opportunities, interactive boardroom appointments, keynote and executive sessions, roundtable discussions, private meetings, the Solutions Pavilion and more.
