The Global Presence Alliance (GPA), has announced 9 recipients of its 2018 Global Vendor Excellence Awards. These awards are presented to the leading Audio, Video, and UC manufacturers and vendors as recognized through a formal member voting process evaluating more than 40 technology companies worldwide. Results are based upon evaluations of programs, support, solutions and capacity to provide these consistently as a part of a global enterprise program for the GPA and its customers.


GPA Executive Director Byron Tarry notes, “Presentation of our Global Excellence Awards is an annual tradition for us at InfoComm. We clearly recognise we cannot deliver upon our promise of global consistency without vendor partners equally focused on fulfilling this commitment. Being the world’s largest AV alliance, and an organization purpose-built for
global deployment, this gives us unparalleled insight into all of our technology partners’ capabilities on a global scale. These awards recognise the best of the best in the market based on feedback from thousands of professionals worldwide.”

The GPA’s 2018 Board President and Vice President of Technology for Whitlock, John Bailey added, “Aside from being a valuable resource to our members regarding which partners they should align with to architect effective global collaboration deployment and support programs, it is our hope that these awards will also encourage all supplier-partners to strive for more mature and enhanced capabilities in supporting global customers. Customer demand is at an unprecedented level in the enterprise market, as collaboration technology integrated into a broader Modern Workplace strategy has become a critical C-Level priority across the globe.”

For 2018, the following vendors are recipients of the GPA Global Excellence awards:


As we celebrate our own Infocomm milestone of 10 years since the formation of the Global Presence Alliance, we congratulate all of these organizations on this recognition of excellence, and thank them for their efforts in allowing us to deliver even greater success for our members and customers in the years to come.
