Each year at Red Hat Summit we look forward to showcasing unique partner stories and our joint successes in helping customers achieve open hybrid cloud innovation. This year, we are pleased to introduce the Partner Experience: an integrated, immersive experience for partners within the Red Hat Summit 2021 event. Partner Experience provides partner-centric messages and content throughout each part of Red Hat Summit for partners to expand their knowledge and understanding around Red Hat’s portfolio. 

Partner Experience is an opportunity for partners to access tailored content, share insights and hear directly from Red Hat leaders on key initiatives and updates. Here is an overview of the Partner Experience at Red Hat Summit and tips for navigating this year’s event. 

Listen to the Global Partner Keynote

Partners are invited to attend a special keynote with Paul Cormier, president and chief executive officer, alongside several Red Hat executives:

  • Tim Yeaton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer

  • Larry Stack, executive vice president, Global Sales and Services

  • Mark Enzweiler, senior vice president, Global Partners and Alliances

  • Dave Farrell, senior vice president, Global Strategic Alliances and Go-to-Market

  • Terri Hall, vice president, Global Partners and Alliances

The keynote will highlight Red Hat’s strategy for the partner ecosystem in 2021 and beyond, offering more details around go-to-market support, programmatic updates and cross-collaboration opportunities for partners. We are also pleased to welcome Accenture as a guest speaker for the Global Partner Keynote to discuss their experiences collaborating with Red Hat. 

Visit the Partner Hub

The Partner Hub is our virtual partner booth located in the Open Neighborhood at Red Hat Summit. Here, partners can find comprehensive content and resources to learn more about building and certifying solutions, selling for the future and extending high-value services to customers with Red Hat open hybrid cloud technologies. 

Partners can also connect directly with Red Hat experts in our live chat room, schedule 1:1 meetings with Red Hat and participate in group chats with multiple parties. 

Ask the experts and explore interactive demos

We encourage our partners to explore all that Red Hat Summit has to offer, including Red Hat leaders and customers on the virtual stage as well as a few special guests. For partners interested in learning more about Red Hat products, our Ask the Expert sessions offer an opportunity for attendees to engage directly with Red Hat experts and ask questions about specific IT challenges. 

After visiting the Partner Hub, partners can also explore other virtual booths in the Open Neighborhood to find interactive demos and learn more about Red Hat solutions and offerings, such as Red Hat Marketplace. 

Following the keynotes and conversations during Red Hat Summit in April, attendees can access all of the content on-demand after the event. As Red Hat Summit is extended, so is the Partner Experience!

In addition to the Global Partner Keynote and Partner Hub in April, partners can look forward to a dedicated Partner Channel starting June 15-16. The Partner Channel will include eight breakout sessions specifically designed for partners, offering a deeper and extended look into key topics, trends and Red Hat announcements.
