After a long and rigorous judging and voting process we are now just days away from being able to name the winners of the 2013 MicroScope Awards for Channel Excellence.
All will be revealed on Monday 10 June in our monthly ezine.
Now in their sixth year and their second as a wholly virtual event, the ACEs are firmly established as the premier IT channel award, recognising the best and most innovative resellers, distributors and vendors that the UK has to offer.
Reflecting the vibrancy of the channel
This year’s entrants were of an extremely high standard and as usual the competition was hard-fought.
Once again the entries we received reflected the sheer number of businesses in the vibrant UK channel, coming from boutique value added resellers and managed service providers, specialist distributors and broadline giants alike.
Meanwhile the popular technology products and projects categories – introduced for the first time in 2012 – reflected the enormous diversity of the IT industry, covering areas such as networking, security, storage, software and of course, cloud.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank all those who took the time to research, polish and submit their entries this year, and hope you will join with the MicroScope team here at TechTarget in offering our congratulations to the winners.
The winners revealed
We will be revealing the full list of winners in our special ACEs ezine, which you will be able to download on Monday 10 June.
You can sign up in advance to receive the ezine right here.
