Dicker Data resellers go wild on Stewart Island

21 Nov 2016

Dicker Data resellers took to the wilds last week, as the winning resellers in the distributor’s Wild NZ promotion headed to Stewart Island.

Staff from Codeblue Auckland, Lexel Systems, PB Technologies Manukau, Baycom, PCMedia Technologies, VR Concepts, Cogent Communications and The Laptop Company Wellington, joined Dicker Data staff on the four day ‘real Kiwi adventure’.

Among the adventures experienced were a bird tour on predator free Ulva Island, where saddleback, weka, parakeets and robins were sighted, and the first taste for many of muttonbird.

A fishing trip - in 35 knot winds - and attending a short film festival at the Bunkhouse theatre, were also included.
