Theaters

In 2017, the Canalys theater sessions will have two different formats: panel sessions and dedicated vendor sessions. We will be addressing a hot issue in all the sessions. Delegate feedback, combined with vendor and analyst perspectives, drive the topics chosen to ensure you're hearing about the latest, most critical issues affecting your businesses. Sessions are 45 minutes short to ensure that we handle the topic at hand quickly and get to the point succinctly, so that you can absorb, learn, and move on to the critical matter of relationship building and nurturing.

The vendor sessions will give more vision and strategy detail, following on from the scene set by leaders in the keynote sessions. They will give insight into the measures that vendors are taking on their journey across the digital transformation landscape. The vendor sessions will be setting out to help you discover how to protect and build today, but also how to prepare for shifting ground and new horizons.

During the panel sessions, we will have multiple vendors answering your specific questions on the topic. You will get a more detailed, yet varied view of the future implications and opportunities. The panel sessions should offer more tactical ideas to move your business forward. Canalys analysts host the panel and use the Canalys Event App Live Q&A System (https://www.canalys.com/eventapp) – so make sure you submit your queries and vote for those already on there to make sure they get asked! We will be keeping answers brief, with 30-second limits, to ensure you get to hear the variety of opinions from industry leaders, giving you the chance to follow up on them in more depth in your 1:1 meetings if needed.
