Our first ever KEMP Inspire awards were presented to partners last month at a glamorous awards ceremony in Dublin, Ireland. We started the night with Peter Melerud presenting our Most prestigious award, the KEMP GOLD award. This award is in acknowledgment for outstanding achievement and dedication to the KEMP brand and it was no surprise that Getech won. Getech were the first KEMP distribution partner in EMEA and have been part of the KEMP story since 2006! Guy Watts was delighted to accept the award on the night.
We then moved on to the awards for best reseller and distribution partner for 2013 in all the regions. We had hugs, handshakes. clapping and some tears…we’ll maybe not tears 😉 but all our winners were thrilled on the night.

Newcomer of the Year 2013
Our newcomer of the year award was heavily competitive. The winner is not only in the top 5 for sales but also contributes to KEMP with invaluable feedback from the end users and technical market leaders. Sasha from ACP Koln was shocked when we announced them as the winner. We hope to continue to develop this great partnership.
Project of the Year 2013
Our final award was for project of the year. The competition was tough. The Benelux team tried their arm at bribery with delicious stroffwaffles. The uk team tried to convince us with their charm and animated presentation skills and the German team kept things straight forward and factual! And the winners were……… Team Germany for their project on SMA Solar.
A great event and a great night
All in all we’re delighted with our first EMEA partner conference. It highlighted our own growth and showed the quality and diversity of the wonderful partners we’ve worked with to create our fantastic growth. Here’s to meeting you all next year at the 2015 event.
