Synnex announces $10k Dubai winner...

16 Oct 13

Ascent Technology has taken out the single largest prize ever offered by Synnex New Zealand, winning the Luxury Escape to Dubai, valued at $10,000.

Richard Harri, Synnex New Zealand country manager, says the promotion attracted a huge amount of interest.

“Initially we launched the event at a movie night and then through Facebook and our company-wide auto signatures,” Harri says. “Dubai is a fantastic destination with all sorts of attractions.”

The lucky winner, and travelling companion, will be staying at the Burj Al Arab - one of the world’s few seven-star hotels – for four nights, and ascending the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. A camel ride and ‘romantic dinner’ under the desert stars and complimentary passes for indoor skiing at Ski Dubai are also included.

“[They will] even receive transfers to Abu Dhabi to ride the world’s fastest roller coaster at Ferrari World,” Harri adds.

Next up for Synnex’s Lenovo resellers is the chance to win a $10,000 trip in the New York Next Year promo, currently underway. “A lucky Synnex reseller will get to take their partner to NYC during the course of 2014,”Harri says.

“It’s up to the reseller as to when they want to take the prize – they could take it during New Years and spend their New Year’s Eve 2014 in Times Square for example.”

The promotions are a continuation of Synnex’s focus on offering ‘experiences’ rather than items.
