The 2017 Sektor Conference, held early February on Hamilton Island in Queensland's Whitsunday Islands, drew 300 ANZ partners and showcased team green’s growing strength in the IT and networked security markets. 

Along with 300 partners from Australia and New Zealand, Sektor hosted more 50 vendor delegates from the industry’s leading brands, many of which provided sponsorship to the event and presented the latest technologies and trends in the marketplace.

There were 3 presentations streams on the conference day covering topics across retail technology, mobility/AIDC, healthcare, networking and security. Forum sessions were also held to allow group discussions on topic specific industry issues. Delegates were encouraged to shift from room to room to gain the relevant areas of knowledge of interest to their business.

According to Sektor’s Tom Kinkade, the right balance of conference and leisure time allowed the guests to fully enjoy all the island had to offer, including playing a round of golf on Dent Island – a PGA-certified golf course or a boat trip to Whitehaven Beach and snorkelling and diving in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

“Feedback on the event was overwhelmingly positive from both the vendor and reseller delegates with plenty of positive comments from conference attendees,” Kinkade said. ♦
