Each year Vertiv hosts one of the largest North American tradeshow events in the IT and Data Center industries. This year’s in-person summit was cancelled due to COVID-19, but we kept hearing our partner base clamoring for an online forum to meet Vertiv employees and network with like-minded individuals. After months of listening to our partner community and planning, Vertiv announced their first Virtual Partner Summit.
Although we would prefer in-person events, we’re expecting a record number of participants at the summit this year! At the show, you have the unique opportunity to network with leaders throughout North America who are driving the data center industry forward at record speed. No longer are our partners constrained by ground travel and flights. If you have a computer and an internet connection, you can attend this year’s grand event.
On top of an unrivaled networking opportunity, Vertiv is preparing a custom, interactive experience filled with engaging content and fascinating industry speakers. We will be unveiling our brand-new Partner Portal and updated Vertiv Rack Configurator as well.
Partner Portal Launch
The new portal takes the convenience from its predecessor and elevates it to another level. We want you to focus on interacting with your customers and less time searching for the materials you need. We’ve even added some amazing new features like a collateral co-branding tool. I don’t want to give too much of it away, so you’ll have to tune in on October 13.
Updated Vertiv Rack Configurator
I’m sure many of you have heard the rumblings of Vertiv’s Rack Configurator tool. Some of you have possibly even tested it out. We’re rolling out a new version at the Partner Summit that is focused on making it easy for you to configure and quote solutions for your customers. It has so many invaluable features including the ability to recommend compatible devices and services when adding the products your customer needs. The new configurator pairs convenience and reliability into one extraordinary tool.
Schedule of Keynote Speakers
If our new partner tools and resources are not enough to get you excited for one of the biggest days in IT, we’ve hand-selected a roster of industry speakers to give your business an edge. We’re live streaming four keynote speakers that you cannot miss. We’ll start at 11:00 AM ET with an introduction to the summit and an outline of what to expect throughout the day.
