Valo Partner Awards

Celebrating the achievements and success of Valo Partners

The Valo Partner Awards recognize the contributions and success of our partners, who have shown special dedication to working with Valo.

The Award Winners are announced each year at the Valo Summit Tour. From 2020 on, we will announce winners for each category in each region: North America, Europe and APAC.

As a 3-time Valo partner award winner, I can say that these rewards help to set ourselves apart from the pack. From a sales and marketing perspective, I lean on our past awards to illustrate the close relationship Klarinet has with Valo.
