Everything Channel Partners with the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity to Help Rebuild New Orleans

Everything Channel, a division of United Business Media, announced that it is partnering with the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity to help rebuild New Orleans. The Channel @ Work Home Build will bring together 100 members of the technology community and Everything Channel employees to build houses. The homes built by the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity help families empower themselves to transform their own lives.

Everything Channel’s parent company, United Business Media Ltd. (UBM), is working closely on the Channel @ Work Home Build. Community Connection, UBM’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, is committed to supporting its employees’ volunteer and giving efforts, and will help underwrite building material costs for this community project.

“New Orleans holds a very special place in the heart of Everything Channel. Our very first XChange event was held here in 1995 and we returned many times over the years, making the city a second home to our group. We are thrilled to be bringing our event back to the city and to have an opportunity to give back and contribute to the continuing efforts to rebuild the city, not only with our events team — but with our event sponsors and attendees,” said Nancy Hammervik, Vice President/ Managing Director, Everything Channel Events.

Beginning tomorrow, Everything Channel’s XChange Solution Provider conference will commence at the Sheraton New Orleans. XChange Solution Provider will bring together more than 225 pre-qualified executive-level technology sellers with approximately 75 industry leading Channel vendors to meet, build relationships and strategize growth in turbulent times.

Everything Channel is the leading producer of face-to-face events that build technology partnerships and alliances between Vendors, Distributors and senior-level Decision-Makers within the Retail, End User and IT Channel markets. Everything Channel’s IT Channel events deliver new markets, customers and revenue opportunities for Solution Providers and Vendors. These events offer numerous recruiting, training, education and networking opportunities during three and four-day events filled with keynotes, lectures, debates and discussions revolving around critical Channel issues and trends.

“We are always amazed by the generosity of the business community when they hold corporate meetings in New Orleans,” stated Jim Pate, Executive Director, New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity. “In such busy times, Everything Channel has taken a full day and set it aside to work with us. That is tremendous support of our mission.”
