Don’t forget about the Channel Elite Awards
The time is now to tell us about your great IT solution in Canada's best known and highly respected awards program for the IT channel: CDN's Channel Elite Awards.
The deadline is this Thursday, June 23 at 5PM.
I know the warm weather makes you think of summer and time off, but let me inspire you to act now. Channel Elite Award medalists and all finalists will be recognized at CDN's Channel Elite Awards Gala on September 29, 2011. Submitting solution providers will be invited to a VIP pre-event partner workshop. All qualified nominations will be posted on, and Winning solutions will be profiled on these Web sites along with profiles in CDN, ComputerWorld Canada and our French language publication, Direction informatique. Winners will also receive the CEA Seal of Excellence.
And, it's easy to enter. Just click here for the online form. This should only take you a few moments of your day.
We have a new category called Best Mobile Solution. Can you imagine the recognition and new business opportunities you will have as the first ever winner of Best Mobile Solution? The submission process has been streamlined for both ease of use and judging efficiency. All categories will follow an on-line question and answer format. You can go online right now and submit your terrific IT solution, service or best marketing program so don't wait.
You can always email me at if you wish more details.

Channel Elite Awards is a fantastic industry recognition program for the channel and to a certain extent the IT vendors. CDN encourages IT vendors to nominate its top partners so that they can share in the recognition.

This program is the only win-win situation out there that I can see.

Along with the Top 100 Solution Providers event, the CEA has become the defacto event of the fall for the channel. We get more than 200 channel partners attending this show and the reason for this is because the IT industry supports the channel community like no other. It truly is a beautiful thing to see.
I wish you the best of luck and remember you can't win unless you enter.
