On Sunday, June 21, 2015, Bengaluru-based channel partners of GIGABYTE Technology (India) Pvt. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, took a welcome break at a delightful resort, away from the hurly-burly of the city’s busy IT products market. The icing on the cake was that these partners were with their family members to enjoy an eventful and entertaining day at the picturesque resort in Bidadi, about 30 kilometres away from the Silicon Valley of India.
Each member of the partners’ families present, went back with pleasurable memories because the activities at the event ensured loads of fun for guests of all ages, especially the kids. While the children made the most of the fun-games, interactive contests, music, dance, water park, and a magic show, among other things, the elders indulged themselves in activities, such as golf, indoor games, and swimming.
Commenting on the objective of the event, Sunil Grewal, Director – Sales & MarCom, GIGABYTE Technology (India), said, “At GIGABYTE, we have always believed that partners are our biggest strength. We have achieved this high growth in India majorly because of our partners’ unstinting support and goodwill for the GIGABYTE brand. Most of our partners have grown with us. I think sometimes we should invite their families too, to celebrate this growth.
“Such family events can go a long way in enhancing the relationship between GIGABYTE and its partners, especially if is held in an exceptionally recreational environment,” added Grewal.
The event also had a brief informal partner orientation session in the morning that focussed mostly on the GIGABYTE G1™ Gaming motherboards, and the GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards, based on the Intel® Z97/H97 chipsets with support for 4th and 5th generation Intel® Core™ processors. The series includes G1™ Gaming, Overclocking, Black Edition and Ultra Durable™ motherboards. An overview was given of GIGABYTE’s patented technologies, such as DualBIOS™ which automatically recovers BIOS data when main BIOS has crashed or failed.
The GIGABYTE partners who participated stated that vendors holding events for their family members, was a rarity. Stated Anish Sinha of Giga Byte Corporation, “GIGABYTE has taken a unique approach by involving our families, in such an entertaining schedule. Our kids are still talking about their fun experience.”
Added Abhishek Kavadia of Maryada Infotek Corp., “Such informal activities can surely help in building and nurturing formal business relationships. Hope to see other vendors emulating GIGABYTE.”
