This year, the Cup and awards were presented at the ASCII Success Summit on December 9 in Anaheim, California.

The awards are presented each fall to technology companies that have demonstrated channel goodwill and are dedicated to helping ASCII members grow their IT businesses. The winners are voted upon by ASCII members at regional events.

The winners at each event are selected based on the total number of votes by the MSPs and solution providers in attendance; at the end of the year, the winner of The ASCII Cup is determined by tabulating the results of all submitted ballots.
