The 3rd annual Middle East DISTREE Diamond Awards took place on May 9th in Dubai, in conjunction with regional consumer tech channel event DISTREE Middle East 2017.

During the event, senior executives from consumer tech retailers and e-tailers were asked to assess all exhibitors on a range of factors including product portfolio, product roadmap, channel programme, business potential, go-to-market strategy, presentations and the quality of meetings and interaction at DISTREE Middle East 2017.
