Leading vendor of conformal coatings solutions, HumiSeal®, has announced that its annual European Distributor Conference, hosted this year in Barcelona, has been a huge success in strengthening its distributor network across Europe and its Partner programme as a whole. The event, which lasted for three days, brought together the entire HumiSeal European channel partner community to discuss new product development, marketing activity, sales information as well as more technical issues regarding process support. The event culminated with four distributors being recognised for various milestones with awards.
Romanian distributor Amtest picked up two awards this year for the highest sales in Europe and Distributor of the Year, whilst its sister company, Amtest Bulgaria, picked up the award for the greatest percentage growth. The final award for the greatest number of new customers was won by the HumiSeal distributor for The Netherlands, Dracon-Eltron.
The agenda for the event was full and varied, covering topics such as a Key note speech by John Waryold, the creator of 1B31, now considered a benchmark in Acrylic coatings, as well as:
- New products overview
- Developments and future materials
- Global HumiSeal Qualifications
- Standards & specifications – pulling back the covers on IPC, UL, Mil etc
- Tin Whiskers
- Technical forum – Ask the experts.
Commenting on the event, David Greenman, Managing Director of HumiSeal Europe, said:
“We are fortunate to have a highly experienced and dedicated channel network throughout Europe and these events allow us to come together and strengthen that network through discussion and learning. The EDC proves to be important for us to learn about the challenges and opportunities in each geographic region, which enables us to provide exactly the support our partners need. From our partners’ perspective the event allows them the opportunity to learn about new product developments and target markets that will enable them to continue to grow and prosper”.
