VARs and Partner attended the Star Nite Awards

The SNA is a valuable event for IT channel partners in India. It provides them with a platform to network with leading technology vendors, learn about the latest industry trends and forge new business relationships. If you are an IT channel partner in India.

The importance of partnership has assumed a renewed focus in today’s context. As digital becomes mainstream and all-pervasive… one of the major shifts we are witnessing is the emergence of a strong ‘network economy’. The network economy is primarily driven by the VARs and business partners in the country.

VARINDIA events are the benchmark among IT Companies and partners (VARs) for creating a single platform for discussing & introducing new technologies and sharing feedback to bridge the gap between vendors and channels.

IT serves as a major resource of business intelligence for VARs (Channels) that controls 80% of the average business in the country and always tries to be innovative and futuristic in its approach with respect to the content.

The 21st edition to witness 200 partners from across the country to attend the Channel Empowerment Session. Followed by other important sessions including, the Super Session and VAR Symposium, where the partners will learnt on how to get ahead, stay ahead, and lead their business through the digital revolution.

This event is the perfect platform to strengthen partner engagement and business networking. It is an unique opportunity for vendors and partners to come together in an entirely new way.
