AIDC and POS specialist ScanSource POS and Barcode (which owns offices in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom) has hosted its 2016 ScanSource Partner Conference in Malta in early June. The annual conference brought together nearly 200 attendees, including ScanSource executives, vendor and reseller partners in a unique, forward-looking industry event. The conference, sponsored by Zebra, Honeywell and Datalogic, gathered channel experts for three days of networking with the aim of fostering industry dialogue around current and future trends. Taking place in sunny Valletta, guests had the chance to enjoy the Maltese views with a guided tour of the city or a boat cruise around Valletta Grand Harbour.
The agenda featured a series of sessions discussing new trends and key developments in fundamental industry software, with a particular focus on the challenges and opportunities around the Internet of Things. Attendees also engaged in a dynamic vendor panel discussion led by the conference sponsors, who shared best practices and insight for resellers looking to grow their business.
Speaking at the event, ScanSource POS and Barcode Europe's President, Maurice Van Rijn, provided an update on the company's latest services and tools, and the continued efforts to enhance existing tools, such as Showpad and PartnerPAD.

Employees who are highly qualified and dedicated to service are what makes us different from our competitors."
