Symantec revs up partners with V8 Supercar promotion

10 Aug 12

Symantec is hoping to rev up partners focusing on the SMB market across Australia and New Zealand, with a new channel promotion.

The Symantec SMB Specialised Rev Up 2012 promotion, running across ANZ, will see 10 partners winning two tickets each to the Telstra 500 V8 Supercar race meeting, held 30 November to 02 December at Sydney Olympic Park. The prizes will go to partners who exceed their targets by the greatest percentage.

New Zealand winners will be provided a contribution to their travel costs and race days will be allocated based on finishing order.

Peter Vasey, Symantec SMB channel marketing manager, Pacific region, says the start of a new financial year is the perfect time for partners to focus on growth and profitability, and the promotion is a ‘great way’ to give partners extra incentives to increase their targets, goals and lap the competition.

"In addition, to support our SMB specialised partners in growing their business, Symantec is continuing to invest resources in driving end-user customer demand for our SMB focused products,” Vasey says.

The promotion runs until 31 October.
