intY CloudFest is back, bigger and better!

Find out why…

intY CloudFest is our annual event where we bring our cloud reseller partners and vendors together under the same roof. It’s the perfect opportunity to find out the latest industry news, product updates and make valuable connections.

This year, however, is a lot different from the rest, as we’ve decided to lift the bar higher. Every year we strive to grow and offer our partners the best services and the most valuable opportunities. Give us a few minutes of your time and we will demonstrate why intY CloudFest is not to be missed.

New location

This year’s intY CloudFest will be held at the renowned Celtic Manor Resort in Wales…Fancy right? We wanted to get away from the busy capital and bring you into a calm and peaceful place. This is where great ideas come from, away from noise and distractions, with an open mind for growth and innovation.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
— John Muir

The Celtic Manor is only:

  • 20 minutes from Cardiff
  • 30 minutes from Bristol
  • 1.5 hours from Birmingham
  • 2 hours from London

This state-of-the-art resort will provide the perfect backdrop for this year’s event. If it’s good enough for President Obama, it’s good enough for us! Yes – he did stay there! It’s almost like a mini holiday…okay maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s definitely taking you away from your boring computer screen, with the promise of growing your business and getting the tools you need to succeed.

One day of intY CloudFest goodness just wasn’t enough

This year’s event will be held over two days. We’ve taken your feedback from last year and wanted to make sure we offer you all the good stuff from last year’s CloudFest, plus much more.

You said you want:

Access to talk directly with providers, like Symantec, Microsoft and Acronis

More time to meet your intY account manager

To learn more about the products you are already selling and find new services you can add to your portfolio

To understand how the biggest cloud players are structuring their sales and marketing messages

With your feedback in mind, we have devised a programme including executive golf, complimentary training and most importantly, more one on one time with vendors and our team to voice your suggestions and ask your burning questions. Have a look…

Day 1 – Play, learn and win together

There is no better way to connect to the vendors and partners that matter than through sport and training.

GOLF – On the first day of intY CloudFest, we’ll be aligning you in teams with the vendors and intY executives you need the greatest exposure to, pitting everyone against each other at one of the most famous golf venues in the EU, Celtic Manor.

TRAINING – The afternoon will consist of exclusive training sessions with our Platinum sponsors Microsoft, Acronis, Symantec and Comodo in Celtic Manor’s lodges.

Let’s get real

A lot has changed from last year, with this in mind, allow us to answer some of the questions and concerns you might have…

Is it worth the money?

We say yes! From our revolutionary new product launch to exclusive access to top cloud execs from Microsoft, Symantec, Acronis and Comodo, to learning from key vendors in the industry and everything else in between, this event is not to be missed! There is no other cloud event like this for the channel.

Can I really take two days out of the office?

We think two days is not that much, in comparison to the amount of expert knowledge you will return with, to help grow your business. Think about the long-term gain for the year ahead. If time away from the office is an issue, you can attend the second day only. We wouldn’t want you to miss out but ultimately, the decision is yours… speak to your intY Cloud Sales Specialist for more details.

Where will I sleep?

Accommodation is available at the Celtic Manor itself, as well as other hotels nearby, see the list below:

Celtic Manor Resort

Holiday Inn Newport

Premier Inn Newport Wales

New Inn Motel

 

Step out of your comfort zone and reap the rewards. We certainly did with this event and we are super excited to show you the results! One thing is for sure, you will not be disappointed. So, what are you waiting for?
