The UK leg of ScanSource Europe’s 2010 Partner Tour will take place at PalmerSport, near Bedford on 16th June.
PalmerSport, located at Bedford Autodrome, just off the M1, is the motorsport venue created by ex-Formula One driver Jonathan Palmer. The venue has been purpose built for speed and space, containing four entirely distinct circuits and over 5 miles of track. Partner Tour attendees will be able to drive some of the world’s greatest high performance cars seriously hard, as expert instructors encourage them to push right to the limit.
“It’s going to be a great day for resellers,” said Kim Jennings, ScanSource Communications Sales Manager UK. ”Everyone attending will have the chance to get behind the wheel of two different performance cars and try them out on Palmer’s tracks. We’ve even got Jonathan Palmer himself lined up as a keynote speaker, which will be fascinating.”
The core of the Partner Tour remains education, with the top vendors in the channel and a selection of ISVs displaying their latest products. The events also allow for quality networking time, bringing resellers, vendor representatives and ScanSource employees together in one place.
“What we’re doing with the Partner Tour is facilitating channel relationships,” said Patrick Zaman, Managing Director ScanSource Communications UK. “Resellers can bring their sales teams, technical people and purchasers to meet with local vendor teams, ScanSource executives, Business Development Managers and our complete teams of local Account Managers. For resellers or vendors to meet with all these different people separately would take a huge investment in time and travel. ScanSource makes it easy to do business.”
The Partner Tour is a unique event within the communications channel in the UK and will feature vendors from both the auto ID and communications worlds. This will be an opportunity for resellers to see complete solutions and discover new products as well as having a great day driving high performance cars.
The Partner Tour welcomed over 1,000 visitors across Europe in 2009. Last year’s UK event, attended by over 250 channel partners took place at Villa Park, home of Aston Villa FC.
