D&H Distributing recently held its Technology Conference in Vancouver this month. The one-day conference featured educational presentations from manufacturer partners Cisco, Poly, and Lenovo. Topics include SMB security, ProAV, and “24K” mobile computing.

The expo included two “Solutions Zones” that spotlight the trending areas of PC gaming and digital signage. These specialized exhibits were designed to educate resellers and MSPs on new areas of opportunity that can help them expand their core competencies, taking advantage of emerging technologies and market developments. It included solutions like video walls, unified communications, collaboration, distance learning solutions, and gaming solutions.

“Our Vancouver event is part of an ongoing initiative to engage geographies throughout Canada that have typically been underserved,” said Roy Rivers, vice president of sales at D&H Distributing. “D&H Canada is committed to ‘showing up’ for its partners in the field, delivering tools and market intelligence that can keep them competitive and help build their revenues. Resellers in less populated territories can’t always come to us for training, so our training value-add is coming to them.”

D&H will also be conducting a “Road Show” solutions seminar in Quebec City on November 20, with an emphasis on mobile devices, the potential Windows 7 refresh opportunity, and cyber security. It is part of a larger series of interactive seminars D&H Canada has established to extend its training.

Vice President of Sales Roy Rivers, Director of Marketing and Business Development Randy Churchill, and Director of Vendor Management Chris Ralston spoke to solution providers from the Vancouver area at D&H Canada’s “Technology Conference: Vancouver.” The event is part of an ongoing effort to bring D&H’s market intelligence, broad product knowledge, and value proposition to partners in underserved regions.
Bill Tirpkos Senior Account Executive with Lenovo, presented the seminar “24K Solutions: ThinkBook and Nano” at the D&H Canada Technology Conference: Vancouver. The event took place at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport, Richmond, British Columbia. D&H is committed to “showing up” for its customer base, bringing training opportunities to more remote areas beyond the typical metropolitan centres. In addition to the Vancouver event, D&H has conducted manufacturer-based “Road Show” educational sessions in Calgary, London, and Quebec City.
Andrew Walker of AMD discussed his company’s commercial devices offered through HPI and Lenovo at the event. AMD was one of more than 25 manufacturers to convene with D&H partners in the western territories at D&H Canada’s British Columbia event. Other manufacturers in attendance included Poly, Cisco, Samsung, Micron, NETGEAR, Startech.com, LG, and more.
