The second annual ARN IT Industry Awards went off with a bang at the Sydney Hilton Hotel last night. The event was attended by 520 representatives from across the industry and kicked off with a buzzing champagne reception. Guests then headed into the ballroom for the main awards event. Former Wallaby, noted author and journalist, Peter FitzSimons, was MC for the evening, while Elton Jack provided the entertainment.

Twenty-one awards were presented across seven categories during the evening recognising vendor, distributor and reseller achievements, as well as individual excellence and green IT initiatives. Finalists were chosen by the ARN team in conjunction with Channel Dynamics director, Moheb Moses. Shortlists were then voted on by a panel of industry judges.
