Azione Unlimited Vendor Meeting Kicks Off in Philadelphia

Members Gather for Mid-Year Planning Session Designed Continued Success July 11, 2017
Why This Matters

Attendees will work together to envision a roadmap for the continued success of Azione 2.0, determine ways they can better meet the needs of the organization and its dealer members.

 
Azione Unlimited (AU) is holding its "Prescient Planning II" vendor-only meeting Tuesday and Wednesday, July 11-12, 2017 at the Penn View Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. During the event, 28 of the organization’s 45 vendor members will meet to discuss plans for the organization, helping Azione refine and execute its roadmap for over the next five years. 

Across two days, vendor meeting attendees will work together to envision a roadmap for Azione 2.0, determine ways they can better meet the needs of the organization and its dealer members, and provide feedback on current Azione initiatives and activities. Like the recent middle management meeting, the vendor meeting focuses on a specific branch of Azione members, giving attendees the opportunity to meet and mingle with likeminded professionals who share similar goals and challenges. 

The event will also offer downtime, food, and networking opportunities for the manufacturers and service providers in attendance. 

“We held our first vendor meeting about three years ago and collected valuable information from attendees,” said Azione president Richard Glikes. “Since vendors are members too, their help in laying the roadmap to our collective success is vital. With so many exciting changes going on right now in the industry and especially within our organization, we have invited all vendors to attend Prescient Planning II and provide feedback on our next five years—‹Azione 2.0, so to speak.”
