Another conference has come and gone and boy, was it a blast! Tucson, AZ was the perfect backdrop for the Fall educational and networking event with Members, Vendor Partners, and Guests.
The event kicked off with a welcome reception on Sunset point complete with music, drinks, dancing and s'mores.
Workshops presented by Lynne Jensen-Nelson, Kevin O’Neill, Dan Luck and Robb Best, CKD provided attendees with top education on sales, marketing, and business practices such as strategic planning and exit strategies.
Mark Hunter, CSP’s energetic keynote presentation livened the group up after an awards luncheon presentation and left attendees feeling inspired to sell and of course, make more money.
In between sessions attendees were able to enjoy the property with pools, lounge areas, fire pits, and golf!
Vendor Partner tabletop sessions were engaging, with vibrant products on display at each one, including newest Vendor Partner, Kessick Wine Storage Systems.
New lines from Sommo di Lusso, the private label line for SEN Members, were shown from manufacturing partners such as CWP and Dal-Tile.
