HP New Zealand has announced its finalists for the 2022 HP partner Awards with the winners to be announced on 24 November.
As reported last month, the awards are returning to in-person mode after going virtual during the pandemic. However, some of the multimedia innovations seen on the online event have been retained.
In particular, the series quirky, comic videos featuring Hill, other HP team members and HP partners would once again feature.
Tracey Brewer, HP New Zealand's sales manager, commercial, told Reseller News most categories would be judged internally by executives and partner business managers while three categories were to be nominated by the channel.
"Partner engagement is really high," Brewer said. "It's a challenging market at the moment but engagement between the team and the community is really strong."
