At the conclusion of AWS Re:Invent in Las Vegas, Intel turned the conference hall into the site of its Re:Play after-party.

Famous international DJ, Deadmau5, performed a full set at the after-party from his custom stage, complete with a pair of animatronics.

Arcade cabinets featuring classics, such as Space Invaders and Tetris, to more recent titles, such Rave Racer and Marvel Vs. Capcom, were playable at the after-party.

The venue also hosted several group activities during the course of the party, such as giant Jenga and trivia contests.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
