Ashish Kapahi, Regional Director for DISTREE APAC, said: “During the last month, a VIP Retail Executive Committee of senior executives from some of the region’s leading technology and electronics retailers submitted confidential forms to determine which vendors receive official nominations for the awards.”

“The ‘APAC Channel Academy: 2014 Awards’ are a celebration of the ongoing success of the region’s technology and consumer electronics channel as it drives sales and increases customer reach across the region. Every nominated brand should be congratulated and recognised as a top five player in the category or categories they appear in,” added Kapahi.
The VIP Retail Executive Committee was instructed to nominate companies based on the quality and strength of their overall APAC channel engagement and business model, not just on sales volumes achieved in the region. HP, Samsung and Sony each received nominations in five separate product categories, while Asus, Logitech and Microsoft each appeared in four categories.
“These are independent neutral awards where APAC retailers, e-tailers and distributors recognise the contribution of leading brands to the development of the region’s consumer channel. Hundreds of APAC’s most influential retail and e-tail executives will attend this year’s Gala Dinner. Representatives from all the nominated brands will be invited to join them at this prestigious annual channel gathering,” concluded Kapahi.
The VIP Retail Executive Committee for the ‘APAC Channel Academy: 2014 Awards’ included senior executives from the following retailers: Challenger, COM7, Courts, Croma, Epicentre, Harvey Norman, Infibeam, IT City, Leading Edge, Ryans IT, Sangeetha Mobiles, Silicon Valley, The Mobile Store and Wellcomm Shop.
The ‘APAC Channel Academy: 2014 Awards’ will build on the success of last year’s debut in the region. Organised by DISTREE Events, these awards form part of a global series of channel awards, which also cover Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
