We value the relationships we have with our distributors. One way to show our appreciation is by hosting a Distributor Summit. The Summit is an event to bring the ALMCO team and our various distributors together for comradery, networking, product/company updates, and most-of-all to thank our distributors for all their hard work.
This year, we had hopes of finally hosting the Summit in-person but had to change our plans and switch the Summit to a virtual event to help ensure the safety of our employee-owners and guests. Although we were unable to meet in-person this year, we still had a great turnout, with over 30 total attendees.
Normally a multi-day event, this year’s virtual Summit was 1.5 hours and included the following agenda items:
- Welcome, Introductions & Company Overview
- Full Product & Services Overview
- Process Lab
- Media & Compound
- Service & Repair
- Finishing Equipment
- Material Handling
- Parts Washing & Drying
- Success Story
- Marketing Overview
- Distributor Resources
Our distributors’ success leads directly to our overall company’s success. With the challenges of the pandemic, and travel being postponed for many organizations, we’ve seen an increase in the use of online/virtual resources throughout the finishing industry and within our daily lives. To better support our distributors, our Marketing team created a packet of digital resources such as updated product sell sheets, branding guidelines, and additional resources to help our Distributors increase their online presence.
2022 and the Year Ahead
Looking ahead to 2022, our hope is to have our Distributor Summit in-person in the Spring. Thank you to all our distributors who took the time to join us in this year’s summit. We’re thankful for your support and we’re looking forward to the upcoming year!
