Dicker Data resellers walk the walk on the Milford Track

06 Apr 17

Three Dicker Data New Zealand resellers took to the great outdoors last week after winning the distributor's Walk the Walk promotion.

Adrian Hawker, from Lexel Systems, Liam O'Keeffe from Silicon Systems and Meena Parbhu from Ascent Technology enjoyed four days hiking the Milford Track after winning the promotion, which was open to all reseller purchasing any Toshiba, Microsoft, Plantronics, Kingston, Targus or SonicWall offerings from Dicker Data between November and January.

The team flew to Queenstown where they were met by Dicker Data New Zealand's Gavan Brunton and Richard Harri, who hosted them of the four day event, which kicked off with Queenstown's Million Dollar Cruise, followed by dinner at the top of the gondola.

The team then joined a guided walk with Ultimate Hikes. Despite being tramping, the team didn't have to rough it, with hot showers, fresh linen and three course meals awaiting them each day.

"The team had a fantastic time spending four days on the track walking 33 miles and enjoying incredible New Zealand scenery," Harri says.

The promotion continues Dicker Data's push to enable resellers to experience the great Kiwi outdoors - an earlier promotion saw eight resellers hosted on Stewart Island.

The distributor's current Lenovo Wild Horses promotion, however, will see the winners winging it to the United States to drive Route 66, from LA to Chicago, in a Ford Mustang. That promotion closes at the end of this month.
