(MENAFN Press) Volume ICT and consumer electronics (CE) distributors from across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) were recognised for channel excellence at the 'EMEA Channel Academy: 2014 Awards', held in conjunction with DISTREE EMEA 2014. In total, ten regional awards and three initiative awards were presented to distributors during a Gala Dinner held in Monaco on Thursday February 13th



Tech Data was the only distributor to win in more than one category, picking up both the UK & Ireland Distributor of the Year Award as well as the France & Benelux Distributor of the Year accolade. The regional distributor awards were determined using a voting system designed to reflect the views of both vendors and second-tier channel partners. Data extracted from research house CONTEXT's extensive ChannelWatch survey of second-tier partners was combined with the results of a vendor survey conducted by DISTREE Events



Farouk Hemraj, CEO and Co-Founder at DISTREE Events, said: "The combination of both sets of data means that distributors were assessed both on an upstream basis by suppliers “ vendors - and also on a downstream basis by second-tier partners “ their customer base. The data was combined using a parity system whereby an equal weighting is applied to the results from the vendor survey and the channel survey.



"We congratulate all distributors that made the top three in the regional categories. The variety of different winners demonstrates that despite consolidation in the channel, distributor strength and presence still varies from region to region and strong local distributors continue to play a major role “ especially in emerging markets," he added
