Intel announced today that its Autumn 2004 Intel Channel Conferences for its resellers and system integrators will take place from October through to December across EMEA.

The 129 events are expected to reach more than 11,000 members, further expanding into emerging markets where Intel channel sales are growing strongly.
"The launch of the Intel 915 G/P and 925X Express Chipsets and the enhanced features of the Intel Xeon processor-based platform offer exciting new market opportunities for our channel members," said Maurits Tichelman, Sales and Distribution, Reseller Channel Operations, Intel EMEA.
"Intel is committed to supporting the reseller channel with the latest knowledge and strategic tools to take full advantage of these new technology developments as well as capitalising on the opportunity offered by the ongoing high demand from businesses and consumers for mobile solutions, one of the fastest growing market segments in our industry."
A key focus of this years conferences is to highlight to Intel Premier Providers and Intel Product Integrators how they can maximise the growth opportunity offered through Intels latest server and desktop platforms. In addition, Intel will explain how it can help resellers and system integrators to benefit from these opportunities with new product, training and marketing programmes.
Channel members will be able to meet with local and worldwide Intel representatives to gain important insights into major changes in the economic environment, emerging customer needs, new usage models and evolving technologies.
