SYDNEY: Retravision and BSR Group were notable exceptions to a list of awardees presented by Logitech yesterday for the company’s top selling partners.

Dick Smith Electronics, Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, WOW Sight & Sound, Big W and Officeworks were all among the winners of the Alto Awards, presented at Sydney’s Aria restaurant, along with other smaller retailers, but the two competing groups missed out.

This year marked the inaugural year of the awards, with over 50 resellers and trade partners attending.

Celebrity Chef and Aria co-owner Matt Moran made a special appearance and handed out signed copies of his latest book.

“The Alto Awards provides the perfect opportunity to showcase and acknowledge the efforts of businesses and individuals who consistently support our brand and form a part of the Logitech family. As key contributors to Logitech’s success we wanted to take the time to formally recognise our trade partners and what they have achieved over the last year,” said Logitech Australia and New Zealand general manager, George Saad.

“At Logitech, we strive to deliver high quality product, service and support and use our unique methodology to help ensure our partners’ success. These awards are symbolic of the strong alliance between Logitech and our customers and partners and we look forward to hosting the Awards and recognising our partners achievements again in the years to come."
