After posting record back half of 2020, Azione Unlimited is roaring into 2021 with member awards, an updated conference roadmap, and its year-long mantra, ‘Better Than Best.’
“It’s hard to believe that just one year ago, we were bracing for impact as we shifted to helping our members navigate PPP loans, cash flow forecasting, employee management, and the many other unforeseen circumstances of Covid-19,” says Richard Glikes, president of Azione Unlimited. “2020 ended on a high-note for Azione Unlimited members. We want to continue that momentum into 2021, [and] are extremely excited about what we have in store for our members.”
‘Better Than Best’ is Azione Unlimited’s slogan for 2021. It signifies the association’s drive to stand-out as thought leaders in the custom integration industry, providing deeper value for its members, and making them more profitable. Inspiration for this slogan comes from a quote from Lebron James — ““Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve been the best player. I love being a leader, and I love being the best. I just want to get better.”

Conference Roadmap and Initiatives
Concluding its first-ever winter conference, Azione Unlimited recently wrapped up its virtual, two-day February ‘Interesting Interlude’ and will soon open registration for the ‘Expedient Exposition’ in late April. Virtual conferences have been a massive success in keeping dialog, education, and community together during times of social distancing.
Each virtual conference is divided into elements of roundtable-style workshops, keynotes, and crowd-favorite speed networking. Speed networking is a roulette-style meeting with a random match between dealers and vendors for a brief 5-minute conversation. These lightning-round interactions have led to new relationships and fresh dialog between members.
“Hallelujah, hats, and horns! Azione Unlimited has booked its invigorating in-person Fall conference this year in Nashville, TN,” adds Glikes. “We are thrilled to once again be able to break bread, share ideas over drinks, see old friends, and get our creative juices flowing again.”
