NEC Announces Winners of the Display Trends Forum Partner Awards from Valencia

NEC Display Solutions Europe has revealed the winners of the 2018/19 Display Trends Forum EMEA Partner Awards at its key customer event in Valencia, Spain.

The Display Trends Forum event brings together NEC’s key EMEA customers, industry experts, regional business leaders as well as the NEC top leadership team. The event, held annually since 2010, has become the definitive forum to discover display technology trends, discuss new business needs with vertical solutions experts, and engage with key influencers in the industry.

This year’s forum was focused on the main applications for Digital Signage with new smarter opportunities in a crowded market space, and a completely new approach to Meeting and Conferencing with future virtual and digital meeting rooms. In addition, large venue projection and direct view LED display technologies were discussed, including how new technologies are creating new opportunities for multiple industries in areas as diverse as advertising, infotainment, passenger information, higher education, business collaboration and more.

More than 130 attendees from 27 countries listened to keynote speeches from, among others, bestselling author and management expert, Anja Förster, Chris McIntyre-Brown, Associate Director at Futuresource, and Florian Rotberg, Managing Director of Invidis Consulting.

The Display Trends Forum EMEA Partner Awards recognises exceptional achievements by NEC’s most successful channel partners operating across display and projection solutions for various vertical applications. The winners were announced at a special ceremony during the event:

  1. Top Distributor 2018 – Large Format Displays, Exertis (United Kingdom)

  4. Top Reseller 2018 – Desktop Displays, Computacenter (United Kingdom)
  5. Top Distributor 2018 – Solutions, EET Europarts (Norway)

“Display technology doesn’t stand still, and our distributor and reseller partners have worked tremendously hard to bring new solutions to customers around the world,” said Bernd Eberhardt, President and CEO of NEC Display Solutions Europe. “A great example is the growth in demand for large digital canvasses, which is transforming operations – and the customer experience – in sectors as diverse as aviation and retail, as well as for business communication and collaboration. In February NEC made a big stride in this area with our acquisition of S[quadrat], which has enabled us to deliver even better value and benefits to end users through a range of new service offerings.

“This is only possible with the help of our partners, and we congratulate the winners and thank them for their contribution to our shared success,” concluded Bernd Eberhardt.
