Azione Unlimited (AU), the education and buying group for custom retailers and integrators, will hold its 2016 Spring Conference themed, “Assimilating in Arizona”, April 15-17. The three-day weekend conference, which is free to Azione members, will be held at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa in Chandler, AZ.
The conference will feature open discussions, small meeting presentations, and guest speakers with topics tailored to CE integrators. “Best practices” small group discussions give members a chance to learn from and share with each other. Each dealer will also have nine one-on-one meetings with vendors of their choice; and new this year will be a 14,000-square-foot vendor exhibition. The first night’s dinner will be at the Wild Horse, dining al fresco and enjoying an Arizona sunset. Saturday night’s dinner will be off-site at Flemings Steak House.
This conference, which is being promoted as “the most extravagant one for Azione to date,” will combine work and play. Members are encouraged to bring their spouses and on Saturday afternoon enjoy some down time activities at the Wild Horse Pass. The resort spans more than 2,100 acres and is nestled in the heart of the Gila River Indian Reservation. The Wild Horse Pass Resort boasts two golf courses, an on-site Equestrian Center, a casino, tennis courts, a Forbes four-star-rated spa, hiking trails in the Sonoran desert, and the most award-winning restaurant in Arizona. Some nearby attractions include, the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, Rawhide Western Town, and outlet shopping.
Richard Glikes, president of Azione Unlimited said, “We pride ourselves on being an education group. Dealers share and learn from one another, vendors add new accounts, and there is a ‘coming together’ in this milieu that raises everyone’s spirits. I can’t say enough about the excitement that this learning experience exudes.”
