Toshiba LEAD Event Strikes Gold

Toshiba Companies Win Gold Stevie Award for Empowering Business Partners at Annual Sales and End User Conference

Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) and Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions (TGCS) won the 2018 Gold Stevie for teaming up to empower their business partners and clients during LEAD (Learn, Engage, Act and Deliver) 2018.

Nearly 1,700 LEAD 2018 goers – comprised of clients, resellers, technology partners, and industry media and analysts – received a first glance at Toshiba’s future as well as current retail and content management product portfolios. Beyond receiving premium content from subject matter experts on trending industry topics and insight into Toshiba’s latest and upcoming technology, attendees were further inspired upon listening to LEAD 2018 keynote speaker, Shawn Achor. The New York Times bestselling author captivated the audience by delivering a stirring talk connecting happiness with success.

“While we have held other hugely successful events, LEAD 2018 was our most powerful and impactful conference to date,” stated TABS and TGCS Chief Marketing Executive Bill Melo. “Toshiba clients, resellers and business partners met and collaborated while receiving best-in-class insight and training from today’s industry leaders and decision-makers to equip our attendees with the necessary information to foster their continuing success.”

While it was the seventh LEAD, 2018 marked the third time TABS and TGCS have combined to host the event. LEAD serves to help Toshiba’s diverse stakeholders located in the United States and Latin America learn, engage, act and deliver. Six of Toshiba's previous seven LEAD events have been recognized with Stevie Awards.
