ConnectWise Opens IT Nation to All MSPs, VARs

ConnectWise partners have traditionally gathered in Florida in November to share best practices and learn from the masters. This year ConnectWise will open its conference to non-partner IT solution providers.

Professional services automation vendor ConnectWise is taking its annual IT Nation conference to the next level this year, opening it up to IT solution providers who are not ConnectWise partners.

"IT Nation has served as an annual meeting of ConnectWise partners to get together and share their successes with one another," said Arnie Bellini, ConnectWise CEO, in a statement announcing the change.

"When we coined the term 'IT Nation’ our vision was to include all solution providers as members, whether they are a ConnectWise partner or not. At ConnectWise, we believe that we all succeed together, so we are excited to be bringing everyone together at IT Nation 2011."

According to ConnectWise, the company already expects 1,100 attendees for its November 9 to 11, 2011 conference in Orlando, Fla.

The event is typically held the same week as the HTG Peer Group meeting in Florida. A year ago HTG Peer Group members announced they would standardize on the ConnectWise PSA platform.

Portfolio companies in the ConnectWise Capital portfolio will also be in attendance, including LabTech and Quosal
