One Identity EMEA Partner Awards 2021 - WINNERS

This year we celebrated our Annual Partner Awards in EMEA on 25th May 2021 - partners attending were treated to a unique experience with an expert mixologist taking them through the steps to mix up and consume a specialist cocktail - everyone thought the name of the company, Boozy events was very apt!

Usually, we coincide this event with the EMEA UNITE User & Partner Conference, but this year since we are running a virtual UNITE (vUNITE) in October, we are keeping on schedule so that we are aligned for Spring 2022 when we plan to go with a live event again!

In making the awards, we have taken inputs from across all our sub-regions in EMEA & considered all aspects of partner activities throughout the past year to make our judgements.

Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, we have seen continual growth in partnerships over the past 12 months - as demonstrated by the extensive short-list of new partners joining our program and making an impact in 2021.
