WELCOME Welcome to the PCR Awards 2021. We are delighted to be able to host you all in person for this prestigious occasion and one that is very much over due after such unprecedented times. But nonetheless we are all here and able to enjoy this very special evening where we will be presenting 21 highly coveted awards intended to put a spot light on the most influential retailers, resellers, channel service providers, vendors and distributors that have made the biggest impact on the channel during 2021. And as is customary to the PCR Awards night we will conclude with the PCR team unveiling this year’s PCR Company of the Year! We welcome you all to carry on the party, whether celebrating or commiserating, as we now have the chance to catch up with colleagues and friends on this very special occasion. See you all on the dance floor! That just leaves me to say a very big thank you to each and everyone one of you for making this night happen and a big thank you to our awards partners, who you can see on p23 as without them this night would not have been possible. We look forward to welcoming you again in 2022!

Michelle Winny PCR Editor
