Mid-Year Review Summit in Denver

Summer Meeting is a Hit with 1-800-SWEEPER Partners

1-800-SWEEPER Partners and managers, along with the staff of 1-800-SWEEPER, converged at Denver, Colorado June 13-14, 2019 for the Mid-Year Meeting. This annual event brought the group together to share best practices, resources and of course to socialize with other 1-800-SWEEPER Partners.

Short, tight roundtable discussions were led and actively participated in on subjects including managing your chart of accounts and improving your Google My Business listings. Newest staff member, Business Development Representative Andy Williams, provided a quick overview of the most recent Vendor updates including new Vendor Partners, offers and rebates (see associated story). The 33 attendees also got an introduction to 1-800-SWEEPER’s new Mechanics’ Forum which will soon be available to help mechanics troubleshoot equipment issues.

During afternoon sessions, Chris Nesbitt of Nescon introduced the group to an innovative equipment option – X Broom. Board member Matt Bawks and Executive Director Ben Steyer introduced learning session breakout groups which will give focus to roundtables held during the upcoming Sweeper Summit in Atlanta, November 7-8.

Socializing, always a highlight of any 1-800-SWEEPER event, included a stellar dinner at Maggiano’s Little Italy hosted by X-Broom / NESCON, a Colorado Rockies MLB game and a shop-tour of Armstrong Sweeping’s facility complete with a BBQ lunch, and X Broom demonstration hosted by Kerry and Mitch Armstrong.

The entire, multi-day event was very positively received and appreciated by all who attended. Many thanks to Carolyn Bell and Ben Steyer for coordinating.

By the way, it is not too early – mark your calendar and start looking into flights to Atlanta to attend Sweeper Summit & Equipment Expo – November 7-8, 2019. See you there!
