The 16th annual DISTREE Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) hosted buyer tech channel event, which takes place in Monaco from February 6-9th 2018, will host the ‘EMEA Channel Academy (ECA): 2018 Awards’. Celebrating their tenth anniversary in 2018, the ECA Awards continue to recognise excellence in the regional consumer technology distribution and retail channel.

Voting is now open for vendors and channel partners to select the ‘Consumer Tech Distributor of the Year’ across 11 separate regions, plus the ‘Consumer Tech Retailer of the Year in eight regions.

Liam McSherry, Marketing Director for DISTREE Events, said: “We have refreshed the voting process for 2018. In previous years, we created shortlists for each category using a panel of experts across the region. This has now been changed so voters have an open field for each category, allowing them to enter the company name of their choice.”

“We have decided not to influence the voting process by creating shortlists this year. While this complicates the counting and sorting of the votes received, we believe that this new system is fairer. It will ensure that respondents only vote in regions where they have sufficient market knowledge to make an informed decision,” he added.
