Ingram Micro Cloud becomes headline sponsor for the UK Cloud Awards 2018

Cloud giant signs up as exclusive sponsor to help celebrate UK and industry innovation awards

Entries are now closed for this year's UK Cloud Awards and the judges are busy looking through a bumper crop of submissions. But that doesn't mean things have gone quiet, as we have another exciting announcement to make...

We're pleased to confirm that Ingram Micro Cloud has come on board as exclusive headline sponsor of the UK Cloud Awards, which are now in their fifth year of operation. 

“The UK has emerged as one of the leading players in the cloud arena, so we have a lot to shout about. We have cultivated a lot of homegrown talent and a rapidly-growing list of world-class cloud companies that are driving innovation and transforming businesses," said Apay Obang-Oyway, director of cloud and software for the UK & Ireland at Ingram Micro.

"Channel partners, in particular, have risen to the cloud challenge and have been working hard to evolve their operating models to seize the opportunities presented by delivery model. The UK Cloud Awards offer the important opportunity to celebrate these successes and we are very pleased to be able to lend them our support."

Brought to you by Virtual Clouds in association with the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) and now the additional support of Ingram Micro Cloud, the awards will take place on 16 May 2018 at the prestigious County Hall in London. The awards aim to bring together the great and the good of the UK cloud industry to celebrate achievements and innovation in this space. 

This year's judging panel consists of Max Cooter, former Virtual Clouds editor, Maggie Holland, our editorial director, and other industry luminaries under the guidance of judging chair Frank Bennett.  

Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum, added: “Ingram Micro Cloud is playing a pivotal role in the ongoing transformation of the channel and the wider cloud industry, enabling end users to realise the transformational benefits of cloud. We are therefore delighted that they have lent their support to what is shaping up to be the best and biggest UK Cloud Awards yet. We received a record number of entries this year, and the standard of those entries has never been higher. This is making judging a real challenge, but I look forward to celebrating with the team from Ingram and winners on the night itself!”
