In pics: WatchGuard channel partners celebrate Queenstown style

More than 40 partners headed down to Queenstown, New Zealand for WatchGuard's annual partner conference, and by the looks of things the event was a hit. 

The event included seminar sessions aimed at both technical and business audiences as well as networking dinners and activities, as well as WatchGuard's partner awards, which saw Dicker Data take home the Distie of the Year award and Systemnet being named Partner of The Year and Top Gold Partner of the Year. 

The awards recognise the company’s best performing Australian and New Zealand channel partners that meet specific certification and partner programme requirements, in addition to their revenue performance.

“The awards are testament to our partners’ success in servicing the requirements of corporate and public sector demand for the feature rich WatchGuard security solutions,” explains David Higgins, ANZ regional director, WatchGuard Technologies.

“At the same time, it gives us great pleasure to recognise and reward the commitment and support of all our partners who played a major role in the company’s sales growth and performance across the region in 2015,” he says.

The event was co-sponsored by WatchGuard’s ANZ Distributors Dicker Data and Exclusive Networks (Australia) and exeed (New Zealand).
