Unified Communications 2018 Channel Conference

Panasonic Australia and CommsPlus Distribution recently hosted the 2018 annual conference for Unified Communications dealers, in Hanoi, Vietnam. As well as covering Panasonic’s business direction and roadmap for the year ahead, the event provided the opportunity to highlight the achievements of leading channel heroes over the last 12 months. The event was hosted by CommsPlus Distribution – the exclusive distributor of Panasonic Business Phone Systems in Australia – and Panasonic.

“We continue to grow our partnership with Panasonic and the success of our 2018 Partner Conference demonstrates this.  It was another great turnout from our channel which showcases their support and commitment to Panasonic.  After another year of sustained growth, it was great to see and recognise some wins from our partners, to share and hear their ideas, and to uncover new opportunities to focus on during the next 12 months.”

– Paul Bailye, Group General Manager of CommsPlus

“It was a pleasure to meet the dealers at this conference and experience their professionalism and product knowledge maturity. Our dealers were not simply on the receiving end – but also actively promoting the Panasonic products, during the conference, with some creative ideas. As we look forward to a strong year in 2019, I’d like to extend my appreciation for the efforts made by all our loyal partners and resellers in the last 12 months.”
