MEGA Gets Social
MEGA Group USA's Orlando Convention opened Saturday, March 17, with a user's session for current WebFront Premium dealers and golf tournament for participating members. The day closed with a Welcome Reception for all vendors, guests and members.
Sunday opened with keynote speaker Don Hutson encouraging members to determine their point of differentiation in the market and communicate that to their current and potential customers. Hutson also discussed the importance of leadership and influencing associates in positive ways in order to achieve the most from them. The advertising and online workshops then followed Hutson. Each workshop was packed with the more than 350 businesses in attendance at the show. Hutson addressed the members again at lunch focusing on the importance of motivating and training associates and what are the steps needed to take a potential customer all the way to an advocate for the product.
The afternoon featured panel discussions where members were able to network and discuss best practices, tips, trends and industry happenings. The consumer and appliance members were moderated by Rick Bellows, president of MEGA Group USA and the furniture members by Jerry Honea, COO and furniture division manager. The panels and discussion groups strategized on such topics as retail financing, price tagging methods, floor space allocation, cash flow ideas, computer systems and delivery.
