IT and Business Insights for SMB Solution Providers


HARRISBURG, PA – May 10, 2018 – D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, has launched a new road show offering for reseller customers, the “Solutions, Beers and Cheers” networking events. The series will begin on May 17, and will consist of seven respective sessions to be conducted at brewery-based locations across the country.

Each session will engage 25 to 35 local solution providers, including former, prospective, and existing D&H customers for a night of casual social networking, plus a vendor-supported panel discussion. Brewery locations for the series are in Brooklyn, NY; Minneapolis, MN; Ashburn, VA; Boston, MA; Phoenix, AZ; Miami, FL; and Houston, TX. The events will run until October 11, 2018. D&H’s field sales team will be on hand to socialize with VAR attendees and welcome them into—or back into—the D&H VAR community.

The series will educate VARs on D&H’s comprehensive, multi-vendor strategy, including turnkey solutions in areas such as security, infrastructure, channel service and cloud/DaaS. Participating vendors thus far include APC, Brother, Cisco, HP, and Intermedia.

“We wanted to extend our educational venue to a new generation of prospects, in addition to welcoming some customers back into the fold in a casual, engaging atmosphere,” said Peter DiMarco, vice president of VAR sales at D&H. “A brewery environment makes for an enjoyable setting in which to reestablish relationships and lay-out our strategy for a successful, solutions-based distribution partnership. We look forward to a successful run, where we can relax and address the trends of the day, ranging from emerging platforms such as our Devices-as-a-Service offering, to ongoing concerns like cyber security.”
