Acer turned up the heat at its Moroccan-themed channel partner forum in Sydney. A band, belly dancers and a snake charmer entertained about 160 attendees from NSW and interstate. The all-day conference included keynote speeches from Intel's Andrew McLean and IDC's Philip Allen, as well as information on Acer's business directions, breakout sessions and a gala dinner.
Once the business part of the day was done, delegates indulged in a one-hour cruise on the Bella Vista around Sydney Harbour.
Awards were also given out. Bluechip Infotech won Distributor of the Year and Dataflex scored Gold Reseller of the Year award. Arrow Computers was VAR Partner of the Year. Regional Reseller of the Year went to Brilliant Computers.
