The eighth annual Reseller Middle East’s Partner Excellence Awards saw prominent players in the technology industry gather in the UAE to celebrate achievements from the Middle East’s channel sector over the past year.

The awards ceremony and Vintage Circus-themed gala dinner, which took place last night at the Conrad Dubai were attended by more than 320 industry stalwarts, and recognised 26 organisations and IT channel leaders.

Guests came dressed in their vintage best – ladies in 1920’s-inspired shimmery frocks and feather head pieces and the men came in tuxedos and homburg hats, transporting the setting to the roaring twenties.

This year Reseller Middle East has revamped the process for the Partner Excellence Awards. Winners were chosen via public online voting by the publication’s readers from a list of finalists selected by an esteemed panel of judges.

A record number of 400 nominations were received this year, with over 30,000 online votes.

Reseller ME Partner Excellence Awards’ judging panel is comprised of  Ahmed Ramzy, general manager, Dynamics Smart Solution; Khaled Kamal, founding partner, MAHAM Consulting; Philip Hughes, managing director, Eventcloud DMCC; and Sudhir Nair, CEO, SOL Analytics.
