Virtualization and automation leader Parallels, presents a series of premier European hosting events dedicated to Parallels’ partners and other hosters and cloud services providers looking for virtualization and automation technology. The Parallels Partner Roadshow provides the partner community with a unique forum to learn how to leverage cloud computing as a software and service delivery model. The forum also lets partners and prospective-partners connect with hundreds of decision-makers and Parallels executives, to share real world experience and to obtain the guidance necessary to succeed in this challenging economy.
The 2009 Parallels Partner Roadshow will be take place in: Stockholm, September 1; Amsterdam, September 3; Warsaw, September 7; Cologne, September 10; Paris, September 14; Madrid, September 17 and London, September 21.

The partner events will offer a broad array of content designed to help attendees evaluate everything from virtualization to applications to automation — everything a business needs to refine / start laying-out its plans for cloud computing.
Parallels has over 200 partners in Western Europe — representing 90% of the top EMEA hosters who rely on Parallels technology to drive success, especially with white label reseller programs. White Label Reselling lets hosters delegate service plans to their customers to resell and offer a wider array of applications. White label resale offers an indirect sales channel and lets resellers maintain their unique brand independence, as well as retaining client loyalty.
