The 2017 Sektor Conference was held on 8-11 February on Hamilton Island, Australia. This is a flagship event in IT distribution where Sektor hosted close to 300 partners from Australia and New Zealand, including over 50 vendor delegates from the industry’s leading brands around the world, many of which provided sponsorship to the event and presented the latest technologies and trends in the marketplace.

There were three presentations streams on the conference day on Thursday 9 February. The sessions covered 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.
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. Here are some highlights of the comments received from the Conference attendees:
