Then, at the end of 2011, Catalyst Telecom and Avaya will give away six all-expenses-paid trips for two to the 2012 South by Southwest (SXSW) music and film festival in Austin, Texas.

Each year, we provide an exciting incentive for our reseller partners something that not only keeps them focused on growing their Avaya business but makes it fun while theyre doing it,” said John Black, president of Catalyst Telecom. South by Southwest is an amazing venue, and were pleased to be able to send our winning partners to experience it.”
