The cream of the channel crop joined together in celebration as Reseller News kicked off its 2015 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards in style in Auckland.

Held at a glittering event at Hilton Hotel, close to 300 ICT industry leaders united to applaud vendors, distributors and reseller partners for their success in the previous 12 months while also acknowledging outstanding individuals and their achievements.
