The event began Tuesday evening with a reception. On Wednesday morning, guests were invited to presentations with a keynote speaker, Jay Acunzo. Acunzo is a motivational speaker, author and has his own podcast. Speaking about productivity and how to find best practices that work for the individual, the message was very well received, according to Dometic.
Event attendees also heard from business leaders at Dometic, as well as Dometic Ambassadors that work with the brand at a regional level. One-on-one time with sales representatives from Dometic was also available for customers throughout the week and at a Dometic hosted trade show.
“This event was the first of many events to come from Dometic in the following years,” said Dometic Americas President Scott Nelson. “Guests were eager to learn more about Dometic, what we have to offer, and how we can best serve them. Dometic team members benefitted from networking with their industry partners and learning more about their needs and challenges. Overall, the event was a success and attendance was outstanding.”
In addition to meetings with sales teams, guests and attendees were invited to participate in excursions, a 5K run/walk benefitting the Dometic Signature Charity, Care Camps, and themed dinners each evening.
