Five down, Wellington next for Synnex Roadshow

01 Oct 14

In recent nights Synnex had a record number of resellers attend their Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North, Dunedin and Christchurch events. “We had 300 RSVPs and over 360 resellers attended in Auckland alone” says Richard Harri, Synnex New Zealand, Country Manager.

During the evening resellers got to hear an update from Harri and learn about new products and opportunities from Synnex vendors including Lenovo, Netgear, Asus, Acer, Rapoo (Synnex newest vendor) and Microsoft who gave a demonstration of Windows 10 which was met with an overwhelming approval.

“Resellers travelled far and wide, some spending up to 5 hours to get to the event, from as far North as Kaitaia and Pahia. It was standing room only” says Harri.

Next roadshow will be run in Wellington on Thursday 16th October, and it is not too late to RSVP. All guests must register and only resellers may attend. As an added bonus each person who attends the Synnex Roadshow will get a FREE Rapoo Wireless Keyboard and Mouse valued at $50 just to say thanks for coming and to launch their new vendor Rapoo!
