HALO Hosts ‘Connect2020’ Virtual National Sales Meeting
HALO Branded Solutions, Sterling, Ill., recently concluded “Connect2020,” the company’s virtual national sales meeting. The two-day event included sales training, supplier trend sessions and evening happy hours—including a “virtual progressive dinner” featuring company executives and their families serving, a five course dinner and supplier “dine-arounds” with small groups of staff, and support staff meeting with HALO’s top suppliers.
“While we’d all rather be meeting in person at our original destination, Salt Lake City, the response to this opportunity to share ideas, strategies and inspiration by both our account executives and staff was overwhelming,” said Jim Stutz, HALO’s executive vice president of sales and business development.
Participating suppliers provided exclusive promotions for the HALO sales team, and the meeting was streamed live on a password-secure website.
Keynote addresses included renowned, barrier-breaking sports agent and best-selling author Molly Fletcher; ASI president and CEO Tim Andrews; and PPAI president and CEO Paul Bellantone. It also included two-time Counselor “Person of the Year” and past PPAI chairman and HALO CEO Marc Simon.
“Our national sales meetings have always been known for fun, fellowship and ideation,” said Dale Limes, HALO’s senior vice president of sales. “This was no different. From our pre-show mailing to our casual, engaging evening events, our team is energized, informed and ready to excel in 2020.”
“HALO found a way to connect 600 people with excellent peer-led sales insights, new ideas from top suppliers, and a sense of community I didn’t think we could get virtually,” said Larry Cohen, president of Axis Promotions Powered by HALO. “My team was impressed and ready to turn many of these ideas into immediate sales.”
