Join us for the HBPC 2019 Celebrating the 10th Handheld Business Partner Conference!
The Handheld Business Partner Conference (HBPC) is an event held exclusively for reselling members of the Handheld Business Partner network. It’s where we come together to network, drive progress and identify new opportunities for profitability. Make sure to join us in Stockholm in May as we celebrate the 10th HBPC.
When is it?
It's May 8-10, 2019
We're starting with a welcoming evening on Wednesday, May 8. Thursday, May 9 is an information-packed conference day, followed by a dinner event. Round off with breakfast on Friday morning and maybe a quick meeting and you'll make it home in time for the weekend.
Where is it?
Stockholm City, Sweden
This year we moved the HBPC into the vibrant city center of Stockholm. The capital of Sweden is built on islands and if you take this opportunity to also stay in Stockholm over the weekend - seeing the city from the water is an enjoyable must.
Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm City
The Clarion Hotel Sign is a modern hotel conveniently located just a few minutes from Stockholm Central Station, metro, trains, buses and the Arlanda Express.

Who can attend?
The HBPC is open to any member of the Handheld Business Partner network. Attendees come from more than 30 countries and represent many of our most successful partners worldwide. Handheld resellers are a mix of small and large companies. They are hardware vendors, system integrators and software providers from a broad spectrum of industries. At the HBPC, you’ll network with mobile computing leaders and visionaries, coming together to generate plans for expanded growth and increased market share.
Event topics and speakers
HBPC attendees gain valuable information about market directions that can inform their planning. External speakers will join Handheld staff to bring you up to speed on industry trends and what’s working in sales, marketing and deployment for rugged solutions. Plus, we’ll fill you in on the latest news from Handheld, including product updates and our roadmap moving forward.
In addition to the latest news and updates about Handheld products, many partners and suppliers showcase their solutions in a mini-exhibition. We love this portion of HBPC for the personal interaction we get with our partners — and we’ve also been known to offer first glimpses of our own unreleased offerings here. We encourage attendees to take advantage of this time to meet and exchange ideas, information and hands-on solutions in person.
Nothing beats face-to-face
There’s no replacement for face-to-face interactions. Propel your business growth by networking with innovative partners, Handheld team members and mobility experts from across the globe.
Mobile technology has never been so dynamic. Product discussions, product roadmaps and state-of-the-industry reports help you plan for the future and provide the best solutions for your customers.
But the HBPC is not all business. Enjoy Swedish cuisine, bright Stockholm evenings, entertainment and conversations with your fellow attendees.
