Resellers in the channel are well-known for their work hard, play hard lifestyles and enjoy beating the competition at every opportunity. This may explain why the Griffin Partner day, with its channel poker tournament and fun casino, is so popular.
Held the night before the Convergence Summit South at Sandown Park it is a great chance for Griffin Partners to take a first look at Griffin’s product roadmap and strategy for 2011 in an informal setting. Partners also get to network with Griffin staff, carriers and each other, have a few drinks on Griffin and try their luck at the fun casino. This year the focus is on how Partners can make money from Griffin’s new virtualisation and cloud offerings as well as enhancements to their popular MPLS networking products.
Andrew Dickinson, Managing Director had this to say, “Many of our Partners are in Sandown Park for Summit South, so it is a good opportunity to give them an exclusive preview of our plans for 2011 and to have a bit of fun. Our top 20 Partners get a seat at the poker table to win some fantastic prizes donated by BT Wholesale, Ericsson, Softcat and Virgin Media. There is a fun Blackjack and Roulette competition for all Partners to participate in.”
