Tech Data Mobile saw more than 100 mobile dealers and resellers attend its latest Aspire event in London.
The networking event, which is held every four months, took place at the Park Plaza Hotel in London last week.
Headline sponsor Samsung gave a preview and demonstration of the new Galaxy Mega, the Galaxy S4 Rugged and the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Other mobile vendors supporting the event included Sony, BlackBerry, HTC, LG and Motorola.
Catharine Ecob, Samsung mobile division’s national account manager, delivered the keynote speech. Delegates also heard from speakers from CCS Insight and Future Agenda on current and future market dynamics.
Following the presentations, customers were given the opportunity to hold scheduled face-to-face meetings with vendors and to network with Tech Data Mobile staff, suppliers and their peers. Networking continued into the evening over drinks and dinner at the West End cocktail bar and cabaret restaurant, Circus.
Michelle Henchoz, director of marketing for the UK and Ireland said the event had the largest ever feedback from delegates, which she added was overwhelmingly positive.
'We were pleased with the turnout for Aspire 8 and the positive vibe that was generated. All the presentations were really interesting and informative and there was plenty of time for everyone to mingle and mix with our supplier partners as well. It was time well-spent for all concerned,' she added.
