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.
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 www.channeleliteawards.ca,www.itbusiness.ca and www.computerdealernews.com. 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.
