Promo Marketing Launches 2015 Power Meeting Series
Last week, Promo Marketing, the sister publication of Print+Promo, kicked off its 2015 Power Meeting campaign when 49 top-performing distributors and 45 supplier companies met at the luxurious Old Town Marriott Suites in Scottsdale, Ariz. The flagship venue did not disappoint, and the latest pool of attendees proved to be a strong group, fostering new business relationships and producing sales orders less than a week after the event's conclusion.
"What great productive meetings," said Michael Spranger of Promotional Edge. "I have already sold one of the ideas/products."
Connecting the industry's top suppliers and distributors is a strong contributing factor to the continued success of the Power Meeting brand, now in its fourth year. But it's not the only factor. Meghan DeFrancesco, vice president/publisher/brand director for Promo Marketing, believes it is the attendees and the format that differentiate Power Meetings from other industry events.
"The relationship-building format features one-on-one sessions held in exclusive supplier suites offering the opportunity to discuss partnerships on upcoming projects and unique sales ideas to serve each distributors unique client base," said DeFrancesco. "You just cannot get that type of personalized and focused time with industry leaders anywhere else. This format truly enhances partnerships and increases sales opportunities."
Joey Rohrer of Paramount Apparel agreed. "Promo Marketing Power Meetings are the future of this industry," he said. "The one-on-one time with distributors in combination with personal networking is wonderful!"
The remaining 2015 schedule is as follows:
- Austin, Texas, May 11-14
- Newport Beach, Aug. 31-Sept. 3
- Washington, D.C., Oct. 5-8
Supplier spaces are completely sold out for 2015. Limited distributor spaces remain, but spots are filling up quickly. There are just a few available for the next scheduled event, May's Power Meeting Austin.
Reservations are also open for Print+Promo's Distributor Connect events. Dates and locations can be viewed at Print+Promo's Distributor Connect website. Limited spaces are still available for qualified distributors. If interested in attending an upcoming Distributor Connect, email email@example.com.
