Fort Worth, TX – February 10, 2019 – American Solutions for Business recently hosted their annual national sales conference in Fort Worth, TX on February 1-5.
The schedule for the five-day event kept attendees busy with opportunities for education, recognition and networking. Upon arrival and registration ASB sales associates connected in the Owner’s Lounge to celebrate and employee ownership before a welcome dinner.
Sunday’s activities included a 5K Run/Walk that raised over $5,100 for the United Way of Fort Worth, general session: consisting of updates from our leadership, a State of the Industry panel featuring Andy Cohen (ASI), Paul Bellantone (PPAI), David Natinsky (SAGE) and Matt Bruno (PSDA). Both vendor partners and sales associates were then recognized with awards before the group broke up for vendor education workshops. The day ended with a Super Bowl party held at River Ranch Stockyards where ASB home office, sales associates, vendors and guests could network and watch the game.
“We had a jam-packed schedule for our attendees and vendor partners,” explains Dana Zezzo, VP of Marketing, Vendor Relations & Events. “Everything our team does is aimed to help inspire new ideas, create exposure and build stronger relationships between everyone involved. That’s how you grow sales.”
Monday morning consisted of home office workshop sessions where attendees could learn important information from various departments. The afternoon was dedicated to the ASB Expo, a tradeshow with over 160 partnered vendors exhibiting. During this time, sales associates could also meet one-on-one with team members from the home office.
On Tuesday, American Solutions for Business team members hit the floor in a wave of yellow t-shirts to spend more time with vendors and discover new products.
“We can’t wait to start planning for our next conference with even more new ideas to help benefit our sales associates and vendor partners,” shares Zezzo.
