The 2018 BrandSource National Convention was a huge success! It was full of energized members and exciting developments! Thank you to all our members and vendor partners that attended and made this year such a hit.
BrandSource returned $7 million more to the members in 2018, than in prior years, and announced several groundbreaking initiatives that will help members grow their businesses!
The convention included more education than ever before, with over 130 training sessions for members to take home and implement in their stores. Another new initiative was an industry-first retail sales academy to recognize and train hundreds of the best and brightest retail sales people. The revolutionary “Heavy Hitters” academy was offered with full scholarships and provided over twenty specialized education sessions, engaging networking opportunities and comprehensive product training.
Most notably, the BrandSource team announced a co-op dollar match program, worth up to $1,500 per member each month. BrandSource will match co-op dollar for dollar, up to $500 per month, for each member on AVB aligned digital marketing services.
The BrandSource events team also revealed they will be continuing regional town halls throughout the country for members to become more involved. Information is available online at avbevents.com.
We are looking forward to seeing you March 2-5th at BrandSource’s 2019 Summit at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, TN!
