Allan Fowler, Universal Unilink

From my viewpoint

This issue of The ADVANTAGE is filled with information to help you build a profitable business. Don’t miss new supplier, Indy Hanger and the interview with Shelia Eads, CEO of ERB and Fame Fabrics. You’ll enjoy catching up with Gordan Hickman of Advanced Linen who is in the middle of a major expansion and meeting Jim Sanford, American Eagle Imagewear, an expert at solution selling. On page 12, Ash City offers a special incentive for registering now for the Conference. If you haven’t sent in your reservation, call (888) 830-7872 today.

I’m excited to present a totally different Conference format this year which allows you time to explore historic Charleston, S.C. which ranks #1 in Condé Nast’s most popular USA cities and #5 internationally.

In addition to the beautiful venue, the program will inform, update and motivate you and your Team. Whether you are in rental or direct sell, conference programs are designed to provide information you can use immediately to strengthen your business. From Members sharing best practices to exciting new programs from Suppliers to business and industry experts, you’ll find ways to motivate your entire Team, improve efficiencies and build business.

Among Members sharing real world experiences, Robert and Pat Yurman launched their very successful Uniform Sales of America in 1983 and sold in 2014. Robert shares the steps to take for a successful and profitable sale.

Members who have found success in new markets such as safety, jan/san and fulfillment outline their programs that have produced substantial growth and profits. You’ll also hear from Member favorite, Steve Kallenbach, who always makes you think and leaves you with a smile as well as techniques you can use to grow.

Attendees always list the benefits of networking with other owners as most important and you’ll have plenty of time for exchanging ideas. From our viewpoint, your input on ways we can strengthen the individual Member’s business by working together is critical.

Join Us in Charleston September 10 – 12, 2014
