AIMastermind Group and Promo Marketing Partnered for First-ever AIM Power Meeting
AIMastermind Group partnered with Promo Marketing to produce the first-ever AIM Power Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. The inaugural event, held in the luxurious Hotel Contessa from June 22 through 24, paired AIMastermind’s top-selling distributor members with leading industry supplier partners for one-on-one sessions focused on making connections, plans and sales.
"We were so pleased to be able to bring the Power Meeting one-on-one event format to the AIMastermind community," Nichole Stella, president of Promo Marketing Media Group, said. "These events provide suppliers/manufacturers with a captive and prequalified audience of attendees who are hungry to build business and build relationships."
"The Power Meeting was outstanding, from beginning to end,” Tom Badger, AIMastermind member and outside sales representative of the Fairfield, Ohio-based PromoSpark, said. “The attention to detail, the structure and the TANGIBLE results that came out of it were so valuable. To have real time with each supplier without distractions gave me more ideas for my clients in 20 minutes than three days at any trade show,” he said. “Walking around a crowded trade show is like going into a giant Walmart just to buy a gallon of milk. Going to a Power Meeting is like having a personal shopper walk you through how each product fits each of your clients. Well done!”
From Monday through Wednesday, more than 60 industry professionals participated in 20-minute, prescheduled meetings held in private supplier suites. In addition to a welcome reception in the Hotel Contessa’s Atrium, attendees were treated to breakfast and lunch onsite. The first full day of meetings was then capped off with a private dinner at Acenar on the Riverwalk.
Jamie Coggeshall, president and founder of AIMastermind Group, was ecstatic over the event’s success. “The AIM Power Meeting brought together such a great group of our members and preferred suppliers,” he said. “It offered both parties a unique opportunity to strengthen existing relationships, create new connections and even conduct business right onsite. We are very happy to have partnered with Promo Marketing whose team put on a first-class event that our members and partners really benefited from.”
