Print+Promo Distributor Connect Closes Out the Year in San Antonio
Print+Promo, the Philadelphia-based leading source of business strategies for distributor sales professionals, recently concluded its final Distributor Connect of 2017.
Distributor Connect pairs top-selling distributors with leading print and promotional product suppliers for one-on-one, 20-minute, pre-scheduled meetings held in private supplier suites. For the latest event, which ran Nov. 1 through 3, attendees traveled to The Hotel Contessa in San Antonio, and were treated to a magical view of the Riverwalk. The first full day of meetings was capped off with a private dinner at Boudro’s on the Riverwalk, where the guacamole was plentiful and the conversation was flowing.
“At Print+Promo Distributor Connect events, we bring great people together so great things can happen,” said Jim Harvie, publisher of Print+Promo. “The San Antonio event presented networking opportunities that have already led to real business opportunities for the distributors and suppliers who attended. Our sponsoring suppliers and trade printers left the event knowing they got real value for their investment, while the distributors left with real solutions that they can turn into income—a true win-win for both parties. That is what makes for a successful trade event.”
“Thank you for letting me be a part of such a wonderful event,” said Kelley Rice, owner of Imagination Print & Design. “I met some suppliers that are such a great fit for my business and already have a few orders in progress with them!”
“Distributor Connect is a first-class event, well-organized and definitely worth your time,” added Megan Parker, director of accounts for Evergreen Print Solutions. “The relationships and connections that you are able to build with the suppliers in just a short time, are unlike any other trade show. I’m grateful for the three days spent at Distributor Connect in San Antonio, and our business is better because of it.”
For others, like Mark Mecklenburg, CEO of Solution Graphics Inc., the guaranteed individual attention from suppliers was the highlight of the event.
“Distributor Connect is by far the most effective trade event I have attended in many years,” he said. “The one-on-one format is quite beneficial, especially compared to traditional trade shows. I would not hesitate to recommend this opportunity to any distributor looking for a diverse, but focused, supplier sourcing event.”
