Azione Focuses on Future Opportunities at Fall Conference
Day two of buying group Azione Unlimited’s Fall 2014 conference, held Oct. 8-10 in Austin, Texas, put the spotlight on upcoming technological trends the group’s integrators could turn into future profits—big ones.
The day started off with a switch: While Azione Founder/President Richard Glikes typically hands out awards to its dealer and vendor members at the group’s meetings, on this day an award was presented to him. Recognizing the group’s recent milestone of reaching 100 dealer members, Jason Sloan of Dana Innovations presented a single loudspeaker to Glikes, commenting that “he gets the second when (Azione) gets to 200.”
Internet of Things … and Other Things
Guest speaker Robert Heiblim of Blue Salve, who addressed the group about their place in the industry on Oct. 8, returned for a presentation on technologies that could be areas of big opportunity for Azione dealers and vendors.
