Date Announced for Varlink’s Meet the Manufacturer Event 2017


Varlink, the Mobile Computing, Auto ID and EPoS Distributor, has announced that its Meet the Manufacturer (MTM) 2017 event is set to take place at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire, on Thursday 9th February.

Now in its 12th year, this industry event brings together leading manufacturers including Zebra Technologies, Honeywell, Datalogic and DataVan, with UK IT Resellers and Solution Providers.

Sponsored by Zebra Technologies, MTM will see over 20 global AIDC and EPoS hardware manufacturer's exhibit alongside complementary product and service providers offering data connectivity, leasing services, payment gateway services and installation support as part of Varlink's Alliance Programme.

Returning to Whittlebury Hall, home of Varlink's largest MTM event to date, delegates can be assured of exceptional value for their time, with new product demonstrations, future technology roadmaps and access to key IT Channel stakeholders all under one roof, enabling businesses to keep ahead of the curve.

Varlink CEO, Mike Pullon, said, "I am pleased that Varlink will, again, be providing our customers with the opportunity to meet with leading Mobile Computing, Auto ID and EPoS manufacturers to see recently launched products and to discuss application and technology trends. We are working hard to put on another highly successful show and are looking forward to spending time with our customers to understand how we can enhance our services to help them win more business."

MTM's convenient drop-in format recognises the difficulty to get away from the office, and with the opportunity to pre-arrange meetings with vendors and the Varlink team, delegates really can get the most out of their visit, regardless of the amount of time they can commit.

Lee Casselman, Zebra Technologies Regional Channel Manager for UK and Ireland, said "Zebra have exhibited each year at Varlink's MTM event since its inception in 2005. MTM offers real value to the channel, it's an exceptional opportunity to meet with so many resellers in one day and discuss their business requirements, whilst showcasing our latest product innovations. As main event sponsor, we're thoroughly looking forward to this year's event and the many new faces we're sure to see."

DataVan exhibited at their first MTM in 2016. Iris Weng, Director of DataVan's POS Business Unit, commented "Meet the Manufacturer is a great opportunity for DataVan to meet face-to-face with many industry experts, sharing perspectives and insights which inspire us to create the perfect fit for the local market and stimulate our team to continually provide exciting products that exceed customers' expectations."

MTM 2017 takes place between 9.30am and 3.00pm on Thursday 9th February 2017 at Whittlebury Hall Hotel & Spa, Whittlebury, Northamptonshire.
