The channel has struggled to keep up with Citrix's gruelling social calendar over the last fortnight, in the wake of its Asia Pacific CSN Summit Partner Conference, the opening of its new Sydney headquarters and the announcement of 2001's regional reseller awards.
Netbridge outshone more than 500 possible candidates at Citrix's recent reseller awards to take out Asia Pacific Reseller of the Year award. Com Tech Communications repeated last year's strong performance, scoring the Australian Reseller of the Year award, while gen-i was announced king of the Kiwis (New Zealand Reseller of the Year).
2400 bottles of beer, 200 bottles of wine and countless sips of champers later, these same distinguished business men and women were playing out their techie fantasies at Citrix's grand finale gala party, held at the Buran Space Shuttle. Star Wars dress-ups, face painting, pinball and the imbibing of much amber nectar were just some of the activities unwittingly enjoyed by those who attended. That is if you survived the lethal little green drinks (very alcoholic indeed) being thrust upon you at the door.
