The Awards take place on Thursday March 14th at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington – you can buy tickets and find out more at www.pcr-awards.com.

With the finalists now decided, a panel of some 100 UK computing/technology channel execs will be asked to vote. Judges will be named once the winners have been revealed.

There are two exceptions – the Grand Prix Award, which will be voted for by the PCR team, and the new Special Recognition Award, which will be chosen by PCR’s Retail Advisory Panel.
