Channel Excellence Awards

There are many award ceremonies, honors and trophies in the IT industry: distributors honor the best manufacturers, manufacturers their favorite distributors, and everyone in turn honors their best partners. Enough of the honor in the channel, one might think.

But one important aspect is missing: How should individual specialist dealers and system houses reward those manufacturers and distributors who have done the best job in working with them? This is exactly what the Channel Excellence Awards , presented by ChannelPartner in cooperation with the market research institute CONTEXT , are for. We do not give our award, but yours!
