Channel Trends+Visions 2021: “New2Next” – ALSO presents the future

This year, the most important European trade fair for the ICT sector is a virtual experience with a promising motto: New2Next. The New Normal in which we have been living since last year is characterised by remote communication. IT technology makes a significant contribution to enabling connected work from home. And this much is certain: the ‘Next Normal’, the time after the pandemic, will also be remote. ALSO explores which technologies, platforms and ecosystems will shape this era at CTV 2021.

Renowned manufacturers of hardware and software as well as service providers are going to present their portfolios for the virtual world on 19 May. In addition, comprehensive solutions in fields such as cloud, cybersecurity, the Internet of Things, virtualisation and artificial intelligence will be presented. Virtual, interactive showrooms, a large variety of presentations and numerous networking and communication opportunities bring together the ICT industry in the 24 European countries in which the company is represented for the first time.

“As a technology provider, with the expertise of the manufacturers and the competence of the resellers, ALSO has the ecosystem to enable the New and the Next Normal. Together with all channel partners, we want to share our experiences regarding the remote reality,” says Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN).
