Image Gallery: Channel Partners Evolution Award Winners — TPx, Pax8, AireSpring, More


A handful of hard-working companies took home awards at Channel Partners Evolution, Sept. 25-28, in Austin, Texas.

Among them were our Best in Show honors, selected by show attendees and Channel Partners’ team of editors. We doled out awards for Best New Exhibitor, Best Booth, Best Giveaway/Promotion and Best New Product/Service. The awards ceremony took place in the Evolution Hub inside the jam-packed expo hall.

Click through our gallery below to see who walked away not only with Best in Show accolades, but also Channel Influencer awards – for companies going above and beyond to get their partners to the show – and Channel Partners Choice award winners — those with influential channel-program updates, as nominated by partners.

And last but not least, see who walked away with $2,500 as our Passport Drawing winner!

Winners were determined by the number of attendees who booked expo passes using dedicated codes.
