Lots of fan favorites are returning for this year’s contest. Last year’s champion, Scott Mann of Scale Computing, will be back to see if he can three-peat and make it a dynasty, returning alongside 2023 semifinalists Christian Goffi of Nutanix and Tom Evans of Palo Alto Networks.

The field also includes former Channel Madness Champion Ken McCray, who won it all in 2018 when we was with McAfee but now represents Fortinet.

There are also several tournament newcomers, including Cynthia Loyd of Broadcom, Eric Torres of ScalePad and Michelle Ragusa-McBain of SonicWall.
