Ingram Micro’s Cisco resellers enjoy Taste of Waiheke

06 Mar 14

Ingram Micro hosted the company’s top Cisco Tier 2 resellers along with their partners to a Taste of Waiheke in February, providing a great day for all concerned.

“We’ve run the Taste of Waiheke promotion for three years now, as it is always a great day and well received by our resellers,” says Rochelle Carlyle, Cisco Product Manager, Ingram Micro.

“And the weather was fantastic on the day.”

Running for three months, the promotion put resellers in the draw when they purchased Cisco Switches, SMB products and Servers, with 14 resellers and their partners attending.

“We visited Wild on Waiheke, Te Whau and The Batch vineyards, so there was a good range of Island beer, rum, red, white and sparkling wine on offer for sure!” Carlyle adds.
