Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - 25th March, 2014: At an impressive event on Phillip Island in Melbourne, Axis Communications, the leading global provider of network video, recently held its annual Partner Summit. The Partner Awards Ceremony, which is an important part of the event, saw partners from across the continent recognised and rewarded for excellence in their work with Axis Communications.

There were nine award categories that were hotly contested, including ‘Systems Integrator of the Year’ for each region, the national ‘Systems Integrator of the Year’ award, as well as ‘Application Development Partner of the Year’ and ‘Distributor of the Year’ for Oceania.

Axis Communications also added a special award category this year for the first time. The ‘Hold Fast’ award represents qualities that Axis Communications most admires in its Channel Partners: perseverance and commitment to their long term goals. ‘Hold Fast’ is an old nautical term from the Dutch “Houd Vast” meaning to hold tight and recognises that the past 12 months have not been plain sailing in the global and local economy.

Wai King Wong, Country Manager ANZ, Axis Communications, said, “Well done to all the winners! It’s been a pleasure working with such great partners over the past year. Axis has always been a channel-focused vendor and we wouldn’t be where we are today without all the work our resellers do.”

Wong continued, “We felt strongly about bringing in the ‘Hold Fast’ award this year, and wanted to particularly congratulate all shortlisted in this category. We know that this is a difficult climate in which to do business, both nationally and internationally. While this may not be an economic boom time, we have been impressed with how our partners are weathering the storm and still achieving fantastic results.”
