Our Annual Partner Advisory Council took place this past week at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC.
Here, we were able to connect our top vendor and reseller partners, at the Welcome/Vendor Fair on Sunday Night before a night out on the town if they should like. Monday morning we started off with a Welcome Session featuring Dale Foster, President of Lifeboat, Tim Popovich, VP of Sales and Charles Bass, VP of New Business Development where they discussed “What’s New and Exciting” within Lifeboat and where we are headed. The day continued with some vendor breakout sessions that allowed for valuable business conversations between our vendors and reseller partners to further assist each other in growing their partnership both together and independently. To top off the day, we ended at Claxton Farm for dinner and networking where we enjoyed an excellent Pig Roast and all the southern fixings we could think of!
“The feedback from our partners has continued to be a valuable part of steering our manufacturer partners to greater success.”
Dale Foster, President of Lifeboat Distribution
Tuesday, we started off the day with some additional vendor breakout sessions before heading to enjoy everyone’s activity of choice! Resellers and vendors-alike were able to join together during a tour of the great Biltmore Estate, hit some links on the legendary golf course, relax at the serene Spa, or even battle the French Broad River rapids together with Blue Heron White Water Rafting.
We appreciate all of our partnerships and thank everyone who attended for making this another successful event. Cheers to a successful 2019 to all!
