Runco Rewards Top Dealers

The culmination of a year-long international sales competition, Runco rewards dealers and sales reps with a retreat to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Cabo San Lucas, MX–Home video display technology manufacturer, Runco International, returned to the Meli Cabo Real Resort, in Cabo San Lucas, for the companys annual Mexico Getaway. Now in its twelfth year, founders Sam and Lori Runco welcomed more than 250 guests including top Runco dealers, sales representatives, press, industry affiliates, staff, friends and family for the week-long event.

What began as a sales incentive trip has evolved into so much more. Runco takes great pride in providing the best video solutions to and for our partners, while investing in the training and support necessary for each to succeed, stated Sam Runco. The Mexico Getaway affords the company and our guests, with the opportunity to celebrate attendees respective achievements, while providing the opportunity to build upon them through the roundtable sessions, formulating collaborative strategies, and of course, invaluable relationship building; albeit poolside!

Achieving a unique blend of business and pleasure, Runcos Getaway provides an open platform for dealers, press, and Runco representatives to participate in roundtable discussions, new product introductions, and demonstrations. New this year, Runco is excited to provide a press-only Runco Academy session. The morning sessions provide the opportunity to gather valuable feedback and conduct business, while the afternoon agenda lends time for a plentiful list of fun-filled activities.

On Saturday evening, April 14, Runco held a beach-side Gala Award Dinner to honor the top sales performers of 2006 (January December); award-winners are as follows:
