A hackers lounge, Mr Robot and a Kabuki drop set the stage for last week’s HP Partner Awards 2017, which saw Cyclone Computers, Lexel, Ingram Micro and Noel Leeming among the winners.

The awards are one of the hottest tickets in the New Zealand channel calendar, and this year’s event, which attracted 300 attendees, didn’t disappoint.

Guests traversed three separate areas over the course of the evening, from a Hackers Lounge, to the awards proper, then on to the party zone, all within Shed 10.
