New Channel Services category shakes up PCR Awards 2016

The biggest date in the UK IT trade calendar returns next year for another fantastic evening of celebration.

Several new awards will be up for grabs at the 2016 PCR Awards, which takes place on Thursday March 10th 2016 at the popular Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington.

A new Channel Services category adds the following awards: Dealer Services Provider (recognising buying groups/dealer groups and field marketing firms), while Analyst and Marketing/PR Agency also aim to recognise more businesses that are vital to the channel.

To recognise the evolving PC market, our traditional Computing Vendor award has been replaced by two new awards: Desktop PC vendor and Mobile Device vendor. This means there will be 24 awards up for grabs in total.
