The dress code for the gala dinner should be "smart casual". For men, that means your kit bag should include a jacket or blazer, a shirt with a collar and smart shoes. No jeans please and no trainers.

Partner Benefits

We believe that best practices, increased turnover, customer support and satisfaction, business excellence, improved productivity, and individual career success all deserve to be recognised. In turn, you can use the recognition and publicity generated to reinforce your message to potential and existing customers. With this awards program, partner efforts are recognised and rewarded in a consistent way. Here's how the program works.

Publicity You Can Count On
A kit awaits winners at the awards ceremony, including:

  • Press release with photos of speakers spokespeople
  • Prepared quotes from EMEA management and corporate, photos
  • Social media coverage - links to NetApp blogs and social media

Achievement breeds more achievement. Being an award winner will help you:

  • Win new business. An independent endorsement showing that you or your company delivers commercially effective solutions will help you attract new customers.
  • Improve business relationships. An award will enhance your reputation within a wider audience of current and potential customers, suppliers, partners, and the business community.
  • Maximise PR opportunities. Highlight your success. You can promote your win for an unlimited period and generate more regional and national media coverage. Plus, winners will be featured in related NetApp media, including press releases and on our website.
  • Make your company a better place to work. Success is infectious. An award can increase productivity, boost motivation and confidence, help you attract the best talent and even transform careers. Don't miss out on this opportunity to transform your business.

The winning companies will be promoted both locally and by NetApp EMEA.
