The PCR Awards have taken place and the results are in. PCR takes a look at who’s celebrating, and who is nursing sore heads this morning.
The Awards, which took place last night at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, were all about championing the hard work of the technology channel over the last 12 months.
Comedian Terry Alderton hosted the night and gave out 19 Awards over three categories and two special awards. Notably, Samsung won Computing Vendor and also took the Grand Prix award.
There were double winners in Distribution, too, with Entatech winning Software Distributor and Marketing & PR, while Micro-P collected Consumer Electronics Distributor and the Distributor of the Year prize.
