Sponsored by Everything Channel Events, the XChange XCellence Awards measure overall Business and Technology Integrator perceptions of Vendor products, services and programs during an XChange event.  XChange attendees evaluate and score each vendor’s presentation, message and presence throughout the event, and awards were presented during the XChange XCellence Awards Luncheon on November 12, 2010 in Las Vegas.  

XChange Tech Innovators is the nation's most unique channel event of the year, bringing together more than 120 pre-qualified decision-making VARs from North America as well as powerful leading and emerging technology vendors.

The XChange XCellence Awards cover 7 key categories, including an Overall Best of Show award. “The XChange XCellence Awards winners are selected by top solution providers at each event and honor the vendors with the most exceptional products, programs and technologies,” said Sonja Williams, Program Director, Everything Channel Events. “Congratulations to all of the winning companies. In a field of over 30 participating vendors, they have demonstrated that they deliver high-quality solutions and have many satisfied business partners.”

“Innovation is the cornerstone of all we do and the engine that drives the IT market. The technologies we rely on, and consider commonplace today, started on the backs of engineers and scientists in a R&D lab years ago. We applaud this year's winners for the hard work, vision and commitment to providing innovative solutions to our industry and solution providers,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director for Everything Channel.

Tech Innovators were nominated by their individual companies, and final selections were made by the editors of CRN and the CRN Test Center. Both awards were presented on November 12th at the 2010 XChange Tech Innovators Conference at the J.W. Marriott in Las Vegas.
