As editor, I'm proud to announce that the CPI European MSP Innovation Awards 2022 are now live.
The Awards will celebrate partners, and their vendors, who are serving as extraordinary examples of success in the European managed services market.
This year, we're pleased to announce that the awards will return to being celebrated face to face.
The event will culminate in an in-person ceremony and networking drinks in central London on 29 September 2021.

Former winners include the CEO of MSP AirIT, Todd McQuilkin, who told CPI that winning MSP of the Year at 2019's European MSP Innovation Awards helped his business get the attention of private equity.
Within weeks, the business landed a successful deal with PE firm August Equity, which was what the company's leadership had been aiming towards for months.
As channel partners move to adapt to challenging times, CPI would like to continue to celebrate successes, and the hard work that has been done over the past 12 months.

The deadline for entries is 17 June.
Best of luck to you all!
