Computer Dealer News will again sponsor the Channel Elite Awards (CEA). Honours will be presented to seven deserving professionals on June 24th, at the posh Kingsbridge Centre in King City, Ont.
CEA recognizes individual excellence in seven categories: Sales, Consulting or Services, Customer
Service, Project Manager, Marketing, and Support Technician. The CEA judges will also award an individual, team or company who has created the best solution as Solution Champion.
Channel professionals, vendors and distributors have until May 21st to nominate anyone they believe deserves recognition for a job well done. An independent panel of judges will review the nominees and select the winners in each category.
Who is eligible to win? Employees or owners of IT channel organizations operating in Canada, including resellers, integrators, consultants and service companies. While vendors, customers and distributors can’t be nominated for the CEA, they are welcome to nominate individuals.
Tech Data Canada along with Hewlett-Packard Canada, Symantec Canada, NEC/Mitsubishi and Maxtor are confirmed sponsors for the event. Sponsorship opportunities are still available, but on a limited basis.
