Mindware in association with Reseller Middle East, organised ‘Synergy – Partner Summit and Award 2014’ last week at Habtoor Grand. The half-day event recognised and honoured the top performing partners of the distributor.
Mario Gay, MD, Mindware, “It has been great to bring together the best vendors and we have received positive response. Seeing the response, this is something we will look at embracing on an annual basis. I like to thank our partners once again for trusting us and we will continue to deliver to their level of expectations.”
The event also featured in-depth presentations from IDC and vendor partners such as Symantec, SAP, Dell, Citrix, Juniper, Intel and Riverbed. The topics ranged from mobility and cloud to BI solutions.
Presenting on mobility, Noman Qadir, Director, Channels, MEA, Citrix, said, “Citrix seamlessly and securely unites apps, data and services on any device over any network and any cloud, therefore any device can be a state-of-the-art workspace. The ultimate mobile device is us as people, and people’s experience with technology is at the core of any and everything we do.”
“Mindware’s Synergy event brought together our channel partners and recognised them for their consistent performance, it was indeed a well-organised event. It was also a good opportunity to see the breadth of solutions and partners that Mindware covers. The partnership with CPI elevated the event and I look forward to attending such activities moving forward as well,” he added.
