Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, hosted its Asia Channel Summit in Thailand, sharing its channel roadmap, latest solutions and a thought leadership panel discussion with over 200 partners across Asia, including Southeast Asia region, South Korea and Japan. The summit was held from August 17 to 19 at the Avani+ Hotel in Bangkok and is the first in-person conference for partners in the region since global lockdowns in 2020.
“Over the past few years, we have seen how technology has transformed the way people do business, not just in Asia but all over the world. Today, technology is a driving force, an enabler, of many of our day-to-day transactions. The Vertiv Asia Channel Summit is an excellent venue for us to gather all our partners to learn from each other and understand the trends that are shaping our world in the next normal,” said Daniel Sim, senior director for channel business at Vertiv Asia. “It has been quite some time since we have met with our partners in the region, and nothing beats in-person meetings. I am truly excited to meet all of our partners in person.”
During the conference, Vertiv executives unveiled Vertiv’s channel roadmap in Asia for the coming years, sharing updates to the Vertiv Partner Program, including the Vertiv Incentive Program, and new product launches that channel partners can offer to their customers.
A highlight of the conference was the Solutions Gallery, a showcase of Vertiv’s latest core-to-edge solutions, including the Vertiv™ Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion double-conversion on-line UPS and the Vertiv™ Edge Lithium-Ion UPS; the Vertiv™ Liebert® CRV4 in-row cooling solution; the Vertiv™ Geist™ rack power distribution units (rPDUs) and rack transfer switch; and the Vertiv™ Power Insight and Vertiv™ Environet™ Alert monitoring software.
“It was great to see all of our partners gathered here in Bangkok,” said Pichet Ketruam, country manager for Vertiv Indochina. “Being able to hold physical events again reminds us that businesses are now moving forward despite the pandemic. As businesses around the globe navigate the new normal, Vertiv will continue to work with its channel partners in providing IT solutions that support the digital transformation essential for organizations to thrive in today’s economy.”.
During the event, a panel discussion with key Vertiv thought leaders was also held, covering the latest trends that are shaping the industry today.
