It was a winning night to remember at Network Group's annual Gala and Awards 2017

What a fantastic and event-full day we had yesterday at our annual Exhibition, Gala & Awards in the summer sunshine of Brighton - with the best of the IT channel industry in one place!

A day that began with great insights from our headline sponsor, HP, and with our group members moving on into key Breakout and Focus sessions with current topics relevant to their business, a lot of market conversation and learnings took place - both in the sessions and in the main exhibition area.

A big thank you to all our key sponsors who contributed to making the whole day - and evening - such a memorable one. Also, to the fantastic line-up of entertainment, from singing waiters to Danny Baker to keep us entertained. And to all our wonderful members and industry partners who donated so generously to our chosen charity, MNDA - Motor Neuron Disease Association. We raised £11,000 on the night! And, of course, to the whole team who worked tirelessly behind the scenes for months to make sure it was the best event ever!

Lots more info and photographs are still to follow, but we thought you'd like to see everyone's winning names up in bright shiny lights - so here they are:
