Azione Kicks Off Fall 2014 Conference with Awards and a Look at CE’s Future
The title of buying group Azione Unlimited’s Fall 2014 Conference is “The Arrant Affair.” And as the event kicked off on Oct. 8 in Austin, Texas, Azione Founder/President Richard Glikes explained that as “arrant” means “truly, completely,” the event was all about delivering a big dose of truth.
And that’s what the group set out to do on the meeting’s opening day, through assessing the industry’s current state and forecasting the best ways for its vendor and dealer members to survive and thrive moving into a challenging future.
The day kicked off with a meeting of Azione dealer members, who are independent technology integrators. Following an introductory address from Glikes, the dealers began a roundtable discussion on their biggest operational challenges.
