Tech Data Canada’s Award-Winning Business Builder Tour kicks off in La Belle Province


Mississauga, ON – April 13, 2016 – Tech Data Canada, a leading distributor of IT products, logistics management and other value-added services, kicked off its annual Business Builder Tour (BBT) yesterday with the first stop in Montreal.  The Business Builder Tour will stop in six cities across Canada including Montreal, Québec City, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Ottawa.   Close to 1,000 solution providers attended the BBT in 2015 and Tech Data Canada aims to deliver an equally outstanding event in all six cities throughout 2016.

The Business Builder Tour has been voted Best Industry Event for the seventh consecutive year by solution providers across Canada. It delivers networking opportunities for hundreds of solution providers, IT hardware and software manufacturers and Tech Data executives and sales specialists.  The event combines a technology showcase and solution seminars into one day to allow solution providers to manage their schedules and reduce time away from their business.

This year, the BBT will continue to offer an end user showcase in three of its stops allowing vendor partners to engage directly with the end customers who purchase their products.

Tech Data Canada’s Director of Sales, Ed Galasso, provided an overview of Tech Data’s Cloud solution offering including clarity, direction and guidance to the growing cloud services in the channel and how Tech Data Cloud can support your business in this evolving market.

“We are off to another great start for our award-winning Business Builder Tour,” said Irene Buchan, Director of Vendor Marketing and Product Management, Tech Data Canada. “With close to 35 vendor partners showcasing new products and technology trends and nine vendor partners participating in solution seminars, solution providers were able to gain valuable industry knowledge and insights that will help them accelerate their business.  As we move forward to each city this year, we continue to make enhancements to ensure that we meet the needs and expectations of solution providers attending our events.”
