September 23, 2004

LaCie received two nominations in the Best Hardware and Best Vendor categories at RetailVision® Fall 2004 in San Diego, CA. The "Best of RetailVision Awards" are the only awards voted on exclusively by attending retailers.

"RetailVision attendees are top 100-level retailers from across North America, and these awards represent an extraordinary benchmark for technology vendors," said Pete Prentice, Senior Director for RetailVision®. "For both winners and nominees, the awards carry the prestige and the confirmation that a vendor's products and strategies are succeeding in the consumer channel."

RetailVision® is a bi-annual channel event that brings together leading distributors, manufacturers, retail sales, and marketing professionals from across the computer industry. The awards honor excellence in product innovation, channel strategy, and presentation selected by top retailers who attend RetailVision® and buy $60 billion worth of products each year.

"Being nominated for awards in two categories by a panel of retailers and partners is a great honor to LaCie," says Mat Gasquy, LaCie Vice President of Sales. "We appreciate being recognized not only for the success of our storage products in the Best Hardware category, but also for our approach to the channel in the Best Vendor category."
