First channel SMB summit planned for August 2016 A total of 10 awards will be handed out at the inaugural SMB summit.
By  Manda Banda Published  August 8, 2016

The maiden Channel Middle East SMB Innovation Awards and Conference will recognise and reward the achievements of solution providers, systems integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) through the many IT projects they have implemented in the SMB segment in the Middle East and North Africa.

The awards will focus on the innovation, evolution, development and projects that channel partners have implemented in the SMB space in the last 12 months.

Aimed at honouring the stellar performances that channel partners, inclusive of solution providers, systems integrators and VARs, are making in the SMB sector, the awards and conference will attract small business owners, distributors and vendors to celebrate their successes in the region.

The awards event is set to take place on 31st August 2016 in Dubai.

A total of 10 awards will be handed out at the event and will recognise projects including the SMB Network Security Implementation of the Year, SMB UC & Collaboration Implementation of the Year, SMB Software Implementation of the Year, SMB Networking Implementation of the Year, and more.

In addition to the awards agenda, a summit will be held to highlight the challenges and business prospects that lie ahead for the regional channel in the SMB segment as IT budgets continue to shrink. The conference will inform all parts of the channel on key opportunities and strategies for developing and delivering improved business in the SMB sector in the second half of 2016 and beyond.

Solution providers, resellers, systems integrators, distributors and vendors interested in entering the awards can visit the dedicated awards website, which lists all necessary information, including the awards categories and nomination instructions.

All nominations will have to be submitted via email with any supporting documentation sent to smbawards@itp.com. The deadline for accepting nominations is Thursday, August 18, 2016 and entries will be judged by a panel of esteemed industry pundits.
