Westcon takes to the road, reaching out to partners in the north

Westcon and supporting vendors showcase latest and greatest in UCC

Westcon has announced a series of roadshows, which will reach out to new and existing partners in the north of England and Scotland.

The events, which will run from 11 September – 2 October, will take place in Edinburgh, Manchester and York. Supporting vendors will showcase their unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solutions, giving partners a forum to discuss products and services. Vendors include Polycom, Sonus, Plantronics, Extreme, Snom and Avaya.

Organisers say that a range of subjects will be up for discussion including the future of Lync, Office 365, as well as advice on differentiation techniques for VARs.

“As unified communication and collaboration solutions are increasingly becoming more complex and consist of multi-vendors, it is becoming more challenging for resellers to stay ahead of the game,” said John Richardson, UK marketing director of Westcon UCC.

“This event is a fantastic opportunity for resellers to see how Westcon works with the ‘best of breed’ vendors and how we simplify deployments and add real value,” he added.
