A selection of Australia’s smallest to largest resellers and retailers are going head-to-head at tonight’s ARN IT Industry Awards.
This year’s reseller awards are based around two market segments: Enterprise and SMB Reseller of the Year. Those in the running for the Enterprise gong include last year’s Integrator of the Year, Data#3, along with Dimension Data, Integ, NSC Group and S Central.
The SMB Reseller shortlist includes Diversified Computing & Consulting, Eclipse Computing, Intrapower, PKBA and 2007 award-winner, Evolve IT.
Retailers are also being acknowledged on the night. On the shortlist for this year’s Retailer of the Year are Dick Smith Electronics, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Leading Edge and Officeworks.
The finalists across the Reseller of the Year category were voted on by the ARN IT Industry Awards judging panel, an independent panel of industry representatives.
About 550 representatives from the industry will descend on the Sydney Hilton Hotel to celebrate the achievements of their peers during the past year.
Alongside the awards and festivities, ARN is also holding an auction to raise funds for Clean Up Australia. There are five auction items up for grabs based around a number of experiences suitable for corporate or personal use.
