D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB, mid-market, and consumer technologies to the North American channel, announced that its Vancouver THREAD Technology Conference will take place on April 19, 2023. In celebration of D&H Canada’s 15th anniversary year, this one-day event conference features exhibits from more than 25 top-flight manufacturer partners, plus four educational seminars from subject matter experts in mobile computing, cyber security, DaaS, remote work technology, and more. The event takes place at the Paradox Hotel Vancouver in British Columbia.
D&H Canada’s General Manager Michelle Biase will deliver an update on the distributor’s business and upcoming channel investments for its fiscal year 2024 (which begins May 2) and beyond. D&H expects more than 100 channel attendees at this event. It marks the first time D&H Canada’s THREAD engagement has been presented live and in-person in Vancouver since the pandemic.
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. Seminar sessions for this one-day event begin at 3:00 p.m. and the show runs until 7:00 p.m. The conference offers one-on-one networking opportunities for VARs and MSPs, extending D&H’s high-touch educational model to partners in the western end of the country, providing market insights, product knowledge, and business strategies to help partners become more successful.
Industry leaders Cisco, Lenovo, Microsoft, and HP will deliver live educational sessions on cyber security, mobile computing, the environmental impact of technology, Device-as-a-Service programs, ProAV, and the benefit of partnerships. Additional exhibiting vendors include Canon, Epson, Intel, Kensington, Kingston, Lenovo, LG, Logitech, Microsoft CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) program, Neat, Poly, Samsung, Seagate, and Tripp Lite by Eaton, among others. There is no registration fee for D&H partners to attend this event. They can visit dandh.ca/thread for more information and to register.
The THREAD conference will feature two D&H “networking districts” where attendees can engage with vendor representatives, D&H’s Solutions Experts, and colleagues to forge connections, strengthen relationships, and discuss leading-edge technology solutions in a peer-to-peer environment. Exhibits will showcase the latest under D&H’s transformative Modern Solutions umbrella, in areas such as collaboration, wireless networking, cloud solutions, digital signage, high-performance system building, and the hybrid workspace. Attendees have the opportunity to win door prizes including a grand prize of a $500 gift card.
“We’re delighted to bring this conference back to Vancouver, completely in-person, delivering the opportunity for our partners to learn first-hand from industry experts who have helped pioneer the IT space,” said D&H Canada’s General Manager Michelle Biase. “The high-tech landscape is always evolving, and crucial areas like collaboration, hybrid work, and cyber security require that our partners stay current on the latest innovations the market has to bear. We’ve all missed the ability to convene and network in a live setting, so it’s a thrill to revisit this forum for our Vancouver-based partners. The goal is to equip them with the most pertinent knowledge to help them succeed.”
