Avenir host launch event at Westcoast

Mobile telecoms distributor Avenir Telecom has hosted an official launch to announce its recent joint venture with Westcoast.

Held at Westcoast’s headquarters in Reading, the event brought together mobile operators including Orange, 3, T-Mobile and Vodafone as well as vendors RIM and Hewlett Packard, to celebrate Avenir and Westcoast’s partnership and the new market opportunities that it represents. Avenir’s team of data specialists were on hand to provide advice and further information to resellers, alongside Westcoast’s experienced IT reseller team, and the launch generated a high level of interest from over 100 potential resellers.

Guests also had the chance to win prizes including a Red Letter Day, BlackBerry devices and shopping vouchers by participating in a mobility quiz and trivia quiz on the day.

Tanny Price, managing director, Avenir Telecom said: “ This event provided the perfect opportunity to introduce our new partnership with Westcoast and to demonstrate to our resellers the opportunities and relevance for the current market that Avenir and Westcoast’s combined knowledge can offer. We have seen very high levels of interest that exceeded our greatest expectations.”

Duncan Forsyth, managing director, Westcoast, added: “Uniting our resellers and the network operators proved a very powerful way of bringing our completely connected offering with Avenir to current and potential customers, and also enabled our resellers to better understand our partnership.”
