about the event

This annual event is the most important evening of the year on the last Thursday of January where all the important stakeholders dealing with the Channel are present. Partners, competitors, customers, and prospects participate in an ideal, exclusive networking environment until the final live voting and distribution of the Channel Awards. It’s during the gala dinner that the vendors, distributors and resellers are rewarded for their excellence in the different categories. The awards are this year given by jury and public voting, by the channel actors. This is the ideal setting and best opportunity to meet and greet your partners, to strengthen partnerships and to establish new collaborations !

Yesterday evening was celebration time and we enjoyed it !

Our First Virtual edition of the Channel Awards was a great success ! Many thanks to all our 400 Real participants who attended this virtual Ceremony.

Congratulations to our 2021 Winners !

Ladies first, Vanessa de Mey, from Copaco as our new Best Channel Account Manager. And of course congratulations to the other finalist competitors. Your scores were very impressive and a strong recognition by your partners of your excellence ! Ann de groote, Kitty Missotten, Fabienne Houry.

Koen Segers from Dell made it in his tight and strong Channel Personality competition and won the Award with his first participation ! Congratulations to him and his competitors/partners. Bart Carton from Kappa Data, Nicolas Paeshuyse from HPE and Ilsee Wathion from Microsoft.

Other Awards were claimed by double-award winner Microsoft for Best Software and Best Telco ’n Cloud Provider. Tech Data, also managed to win 2 recognitions as Best Distributor and Best Covid relief program as Distributor. Other Covid Awards went to 2 local partners, Teamleader and Arinti.ai.

Fortinet won his 2nd Best Security Award, Arrow ECS managed to regain their favorite Best Specialized Distributor Award. Lenovo also fought back and re-won it’s title of Best Hardware Vendor Award they missed last year.

At reseller side it’s Bechtle and Centralpoint who earned respectively their recognition as best Integrator, B2B reseller and Best SMB reseller for Centralpoint who caught his first Channel Award.

Another highlight of the evening show was the Keynote, new in this virtual format we managed to have a personal speech from Microsoft’s President Brad Smith who shared a strong message to our community.

All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the participation of our partners and sponsors. Some didn't adhere to the virtual show as we're all in need of networking. But we made the best of what the circumstances allow us to offer to praise our deserving winners !

So I first would like to thank you all for your confidence and encouragements to pursue and to shift our yearly rendez-vous to this online Safe Show. I hope we met your expectations and I hope to see you all next year in real for our 20th anniversary edition 27th January 2022.

Congratulations to the winners and finalists of our 2021 Safe Channel Awards
