Video: TechSelect Fall preview

Rick Reid videoLAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. – Tech Data’s TechSelect group is gathering here this week for the group’s annual North American meeting.

First up, the 60 or so Canadian members of the community meet today and part of tomorrow before joining the 400-plus American portion of the community for a joint meeting that lasts through the weekend.

I caught up with Tech Data Canada president Rick Reid as things got under way to discuss the plan for the event here at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, as well as what he sees as the differentiators for TechSelect in a market full of distributor-backed reseller peer groups, and the Canadian group’s new TechTalks, a series of sub-committees meeting to discuss important issues facing the channel, including the cloud and social media.

Check out the video after the jump.
