Azione to Hold Spring Conference in St. Louis

January 24, 2013
Azione Unlimited (AU), the education/buying group for integrators and custom retailers, will hold its’ spring meeting titled “The Confluence Conference” April 10-12 at the Hyatt Regency in St. Louis, Missouri.

The three day event brings dealers, vendor members, and the press together to share ideas in open discussions, roundtables, panel discussions, and one-on ones meetings. The stated goals of the event are to make friends, develop partnerships, share ideas, and have fun. The conference is free to members.

Other educational activities undertaken by Azione include a monthly webinar series that commenced in November with “Ten Metrics You Need to Run Your Business Profitably,” followed by “Selling Techniques” in December, and “Buying Tips to Add Bottom Line Profits” in January. Last month the group announced creation of Azione Unlimited University, an on-line depository of training and product materials, in concert with Training Allies.

“The core value of Azione Unlimited is the sharing of ideas. If we can make our members better business people, this is conceivably more valuable than any vendor programs we can pass along and we have great programs with great vendors,” said Richard Glikes, president and CCO of Azione Unlimited. “The bonding that happens before your eyes at our conferences is exhilarating to watch and feel.”
