The audience of over sixty people were repaid for their efforts to get to the venue with 10 separate presentations designed to help Conservatory Outlet Dealers to continue to defy industry trends
(PRWEB UK) 3 May 2012
Business leaders from twenty-two Conservatory Outlet Dealers traded ideas and opinions at the fabricator’s annual Dealer Conference which took place on Thursday 26th April.
The owners and directors of conservatories and double glazing companies from Aberdeen to the Isle of Wight were united by Conservatory Outlet at the Waterton Park Hotel, Walton, almost a year to the day since the 2011 event which was attended by a then full-complement of fourteen dealers.
The audience of over sixty people were repaid for their efforts to get to the venue with 10 separate presentations designed to help Conservatory Outlet Dealers to continue to defy industry trends – a trend in itself which was alluded to in Sales Director Greg Kane’s ‘Review of the Market’ at the beginning of the day.
Equally topical presentations followed from guest speakers such as Brian Smith, Glass and Glazing Federation Home Improvement Manager, who outlined the intricacies of the Green Deal, and Conservatory Outlet’s Operations Director Michael Giscombe who spoke about the recent product improvements and introductions made by the Wakefield-based fabricator.
Delegates were also treated to a unique presentation from the principal organiser of the conservatory, window and door industry’s new and only trade exhibition; FIT Show’s Matthew Glover, also the MD of Conservatory Outlet.
‘After a hugely successful Dealer Conference last year, we had no problem convincing our dealers to attend this year’s event, nor did we have a shortage of high-profile guest speakers, who really add value to the day,’ said Greg Kane.
‘Since the 2011 Dealer Conference, eight reputable installers have joined the Conservatory Outlet Network but from those who have been fortunate enough to attend both the 2011 and 2012 conferences, many commented that we exceeded expectations once again.’
More informal and light-hearted conversations took place in the evening over complimentary drinks and a three course meal. A Golf day also took place, sponsored by Motionlab Marketing, during which fifteen guests competed against each other and the weather.
