Hexnode Partner
Summit 2021

A fun-packed knowledge transfer session, exclusively for one of the most valuable pieces of what makes Hexnode a success, our partners.

Why should I attend the Partner Summit?

We believe you will have tons of take-aways from the partner summit including “tricks of the trade” that we have been amassing for years and have worked out really well for us. And it’s not just us, you will be able to hear from and talk to your peers from the industry and share invaluable insights.

What kind of sessions should I expect?

  • Forecasts and announcements

    We want you to be the first people to know about what’s cooking at Hexnode. At the partner summit, you will get a glimpse at what Hexnode forecasts for the partner ecosystem and for our products.

  • Hexnode sales certification

    The B2B sales landscape is ever changing and, compared to its counterpart, has longer sales cycles and multiple decision makers involved. To help your team tackle these complexities, we have introduced the Hexnode sales training programs, carefully curated based on years of trial and error.
