Recap • 2017 GTDC LATAM Regional Conference

Gracias for Another Great LATAM Conference

GTDC LATAM 2017 brought together top decision makers from the region’s distribution leaders, vendor community and industry analysts, all providing informed perspectives on the latest trends and emerging opportunities in the IT distribution channel. We encourage you to check out the materials from this year’s event, held Feb. 9 at the Intercontinental Doral in Miami.

This year’s agenda provided valuable insight from regional experts on changes occurring in the Latin America marketplace, and on how to best capitalize on business opportunities with distribution partners. Our 2017 speaker line-up included:

• Marcos Casarin, Head of LATAM Investor Services, Oxford Economics 
• Tim Curran, CEO, Global Technology Distribution Council 
• Howard Davies, CEO, CONTEXT 
• Juan Manuel Gonzalez, Research Director, Frost & Sullivan 
• Gernot Teufel, Global Director IT & Distribution, GfK

Each session of GTDC LATAM 2017 delivered unique value and actionable takeaways. Attendees learned how technology distributors are rapidly transforming their businesses to provide innovative new products and services for the digital era – from cloud to mobility to vertical market solutions. Other topics included how to reinvent your business for more sustainable growth and how to take advantage of new-generation solutions such as 3D printing, virtual reality, PC gaming and smart homes. In addition, attendees learned how the digital transformation is setting up Latin America for long-term industry success, with best practice examples and ideas around disruptive technology opportunities.

Thanks to all speakers and attendees for making GTDC LATAM 2017 a highly engaging forum on the key regional issues and opportunities. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
