Convergence Summit Heads North

Comms Business is pleased to announce that The Convergence Summit will travel to Manchester in addition to running at Sandown Park in the autumn. In an industry first, a major Channel event will take place north of Birmingham offering the northern reseller community the support that they want and deserve.

Miles Bossom, Managing Director, Comms Business commented; “The north of England and Scotland has an excellent calibre of reseller and the area represents some major business centres. Until now resellers have been expected to travel long distances to attend trade events and this can be difficult with the pressures of running a successful business”.

Continuing;” The Convergence Summit North has already been applauded by the vendor community who welcome taking our proven formulae to a reseller community which has been missing from trade events for a while”.

Main sponsor for The Convergence Summit North is Manchester based distributor Nimans whilst Oak Telecom continue their long running relationship as a Platinum sponsor. Currently over 20 major convergence players have signed up for the Northern event.

Phil Reynolds, Joint CEO of Oak Telecom is a Platinum Sponsor of both the Manchester and Sandown Park Convergence Summits for 2007. “There are many events that resellers could attend throughout the year but none as specialist and specifically targeted as the Convergence Summit. The Summit has driven the channel agenda for convergence for the last four years which is why we continue to sponsor the event and recommend resellers take the time to visit. By taking the event to Manchester we are being far more inclusive of the northern based reseller community.”

Steve Donovan of Manchester based Armstrong Communications says, “Thank you very much and about time too! We are always trekking down south for exhibitions and the fact that the Convergence Summit is coming to Manchester is brilliant. Besides, Manchester is the best town in the UK – what took you so long to come to the same conclusion?”

The Convergence Summit North will take place at The Hilton Deansgate, Manchester on 1st and 2nd May 2007.

The Convergence Summit South will take place at Sandown Park, Esher, Surrey on 9th & 10th October 2007
