CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) hosted its fourth Channel Link event recently at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla. The semi-annual two-and-a-half-day conference attracted more than 650 channel partners to network with their peers, build relationships with top industry vendors, and learn practical business-building skills. Resellers in attendance at Fall Channel Link heard presentations on the hottest topics in the IT channel, experienced the latest technologies and products from over 85 leading vendor partners, and learned new ways to grow their businesses in areas including cloud, consumer technology, digital signage, healthcare IT, mobility and SMB.

During Channel Link's opening general session, Microsoft Vice President, U.S. OEM Peter Han, Intel Director, Distribution & DMR Sales, North America David Allen, and Lenovo Vice President, Consumer & SMB, North America Jay Parker gave the keynote presentation surrounding the upcoming launch of Microsoft's Windows 8 and its impact on the IT channel.

"We are excited to partner with Tech Data for one of Microsoft's largest launch years ever," said Han. "With the refresh of a number of products, the next year presents significant opportunities for Microsoft channel partners. With their dedicated Microsoft team, we look to continue to enable Tech Data's channel of resellers with the best Microsoft solutions for the end-user customers."

Fall Channel Link also featured a presentation from Miami Heat President Pat Riley and a musical performance by Starship featuring Mickey Thomas. The Women in the Channel luncheon, presented by Tech Data's Diversity & Inclusion Council, featured a panel of female channel executives who shared their experience and insight on leadership, building relationships and expanding opportunity horizons.

"Tech Data's Channel Link events continue to evolve and raise the bar, making them the must-attend events in the IT channel," said Derrek Hallock, vice president, TDAgency at Tech Data. "Through the hard work of the TDAgency team, our Fall Channel Link was our most successful event yet, providing attendees with both the industry-leading content and fun that our channel partners have come to expect from Channel Link."
