Belkin is celebrating being given the top ‘Vendor of the Year’ award by Dick Smith Electronics during the Gala Dinner at its annual conference.
The award caps off what Belkin claims has big “an eventful year” within Dick Smith stores nationally, after significant growth in both the Accessories and Office categories.
It also marks the implementation of several important initiatives including Belkin’s first ‘store within a store’ at Dick Smith’s Melbourne CBD location.
Stephanie Ogden, Belkin Australia’s MD said: “This accolade is an important vote of confidence in our products and our people and is part of the bigger belief Dick Smith has in our bright future, including as a leader and innovator in the ‘Internet of Things’.”
Belkin credits its extensive range of over new products over the last 12 months as playing a significant role in securing the award, and highlights its “WeMo home automation range, new networking products and cases, covers and chargers” as proving popular choices for Dick Smith customers.
Kimberly Freeman, Belkin Australia’s National Account Manager said: “The team at Dick Smith are always open to new ideas and challenged us to respond to their fast-paced, ever-changing retail environment.
“We have turned around opportunities quickly which has benefited both brands, and it has been great to work with such dedicated partners. We look forward to continuing this moving forward.”
