Vendor Partner Membership
SEN offers manufacturers and business service companies a unique opportunity to reach hundreds of kitchen and bath professionals - and at a fraction of the cost of traditional bath and kitchen business networking and marketing. As a SEN Vendor Partner, you'll experience the support of our Members who promote your growth by recommending you to new SEN Members. The SEN management team further supports you by influencing Members to consider your products and encouraging them to remove competitive brands from their showrooms.
The SEN Vendor Partner rebate program positions our Members to be competitive with local competition and big box retailers. Because SEN Members are so motivated with the rebate incentives to sell SEN Vendor products, historically the group has out-performed Vendor Partners' normal business base. Sales growth has averaged about 22% better with the SEN Design Group Members. Today, there are 75+ SEN Vendor Partners with member purchases of over $50 million.
Education & Coaching
SEN offers nearly 50 programs, tools, and services to enable our Members to transform their operations from unsustainable business models to profitable enterprises. The SEN management team has over 100 years of practical and successful kitchen/bath dealer experience that better our Members’ bottom lines.
SEN Preferred Vendors recognize that these value-added SEN services make our Members better business owners. In fact, a number of SEN Vendor Partners in the recent years have sponsored regional business seminars, business school tuitions for select customers, and business coaching services for select Members. At SEN, we align our Members with Vendor Partners who share a similar industry perspective and are prepared to support the group’s business training and coaching initiatives.
Just like our Members, all Vendor Partners are obligated by signed agreements to attend at least one semi-annual SEN Conference every 12 months. At these conferences, anywhere from 80-110 Member firms visit your tabletop exhibits over a two-day period using the 10-minute, disciplined “speed-dating” format that all parties value greatly. The potential for setting up new accounts at these conferences, and nourishing the equity in current accounts, is substantial.
Obtain extra exposure and enhance your sales of show specials and/or new displays at the semi-annual SEN Conferences! Here you have the opportunity to make product/service presentations to Member firms in attendance for which all Member personnel are required to attend. Written Conference Evaluations reveal that since the product presentations occur before the 10-minute Tabletop Meetings, they often have a positive impact on the Members and open them up to handling new products yet to be considered.
