We are excited to reward AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners that meet the new APN tier requirements by the deadline with an APN Branded Plaque.

Be among the first businesses in the APN to receive a plaque showcasing your company name and APN Partner status. The APN Branded Plaque includes your company’s name and APN Partner status, enabling your business to gain credibility with AWS customers.

When your plaque arrives, be sure to take a photo and tag #APNproud on social media. Check out the hashtag on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram!

How Do We Get an APN Branded Plaque?

To receive the APN Branded Plaque, your company must meet the new APN tier requirements at your current tier, or upgrade to the next APN tier, prior to December 31, 2019. If you are a registered member of the APN, your company can earn the plaque by upgrading to the Select tier.

Additionally, if you sign up to be a sponsor at AWS re:Invent 2019, we will present your team with the APN Branded Plaque in person at the APN Booth at this year’s conference.

Learn more about the recent updates to the overall APN program, including APN tier requirements, timelines, and benefits such as prescriptive funding based on current tier and program attainment.

A complete list of APN tier requirements is available for download from APN Partner Central (login required).
