The VARINDIA Star Nite Awards (SNA), is popularly recalled as the DNA of Channel, is an annual event for the VARs, IT channel partners in the country. The event brings together leading technology vendors, distributors, MSPs, solution partners and resellers to discuss on industry trends, forge new business relationships and create business opportunities.
