Hugh Symons holds annual unity seminar in London
Hugh Symons Communications (HSC) held its annual unity seminar last week at London’s Ministry of Sound, to receive feedback from existing partners and key emerging channels.
HSC offered its partners the opportunity to present their thoughts to an audience, which included members from the networks, RIM and other industry players. Attendees were also given the possibility to network and meet with suppliers and customers.
HSC boss, Bob Sweetlove emphasised the importance of all independent resellers embracing opportunities presented by convergence products and becoming ‘mobile +’ dealers – offering a complete communications solution, rather than only focusing on airtime.
The distributor gave away a prize to the most longstanding unity member, and what it called ‘the perfect example of what a mobile+ dealer should be'. The winner was USIC, which had expanded from a small voice retailer to embracing HSC’s complete product portfolio.
