tech_data11Tech Data corporation is one of the world’s largest distributors of technology products. This American multinational was founded in 1974 and is present in the USA, Latin-tech-data2America, the Caribbean, the Middle-East and Europe. The corporation has more than 100.000 resellers in more than 100 countries. In Belgium, Tech Data is located in Aalst, where they have their distribution centre, and Ternat.

Tech Data offers its resellers an extensive array of components, networking products, peripherals, personal computers and software products from the industry’s leading IT hardware and software producers.

I informed about an internship at Tech Data because of my interest in technological material and IT. Luckily, they have given me that opportunity and in two weeks’ time I will begin my internship at Tech Data Ternat, where I will work on business development. My tasks will mainly involve analyzing IT-competitors and investigating what products they offer. Furthermore, I will be allowed to attend several meetings between Tech Data and new suppliers who would like to distribute their products via Tech Data. Finally, I will also help in the startup-process of new products, which will require some collaboration with Tech Data’s marketing communication division.
