The event scheduled to be conducted between 12th -14th September in Goa, is aimed at sharing best practices, ideas, changing market dynamics among channel partners and vendor companies. Utmost valuable to channel partners, the event is designed to equip them with strategies on latest business transitions.

Why attend

Now-a-days the thin line between VAR or an SI or a reseller is obliterating. Gone are the days when partners would just box sell and augment their businesses. With the surge in e-commerce the reach to end consumers have increased multi-fold. Therefore, the business delivery model is changing. Likewise, services over the internet (cloud), is outnumbering on-premise business. Lately there have been lots of disruptive technological trends emerging in India market. With an aim to equip our partners of these technologies and business practices, The DQ Week brings you Tech Caravan. This platform will be used to bring major IT dealers, distributors-regional as well as national, and apprise them of the opportunities in this new business segment as well as the challenges of the old ones. The event will see one-to-one exclusive discussions where our sponsors will speak to selected partners.

Talking points

The agenda is planned to revolve around the SETA. The acronym SETA stands as: S for Schemes and Incentives, E for e-commerce challenges, T for taxation, A for Automations. Under schemes and incentives, it is imperative of the vendor companies to provide back end and upfront rebates systematically in the era of discounted market. One of the biggest and central to the conclave is the issue of e-commerce surge. This conference will shed light on vendor's stance on e-commerce, which they have been avoiding till now, and give a direction to the traditional brick-and-mortar shop partners. Taxation again remains one of disruptive trends. For example; Jammu market has zero VAT policy and its products are supplied to near-by markets, destroying the ethics of market. What are the options these partners have? Do they succumb to the growing unhealthy market positions or can they expect some organized market reactions. Last but not the least; the event will focus on effective inventory management. How an automated inventory management systems can actually increase one's business.
