Conference Update

Ready for a Texas-sized fiesta of professional development and networking opportunities – and fun? Join us September 13-19 in San Antonio for the 2016 Business Leadership Conference.

Our host hotel will be the delightful, newly renovated Holiday Inn Riverwalk located as the name would imply directly on San Antonio’s lovely and unique Riverwalk. You’ll want to reserve early to make sure you get a river-facing room so you can take in all the scenery and charm of Old San Antonio.hotel

In the next issue of Advantage, we’ll have all the news and information about this year’s conference schedule. Conference highlights currently in the planning stage include sessions on marketing, sales opportunities and techniques, and an insight into the businesses of local Members – plus plenty of networking time, both structured and unstructured.

To further entice you, check out some of the comments below from a few Members on last year’s Conference!
“I’ve been to a lot of conferences with a variety of different trade groups, and this one has exceeded my expectations. If you are thinking about coming to a conference, this one not only provides a lot of training, but you’ll also have the opportunity to meet a lot of like-minded business people in your field. I highly recommend it.” – David Friday, Wilkins Linen4squarephoto

“Whether you can drive to the Conference or have to fly across the country to get there, I would definitely recommend going. The opportunity to network and put your head together with peers in the industry was fantastic. I’ve made a number of contacts whom I would not have had met anywhere else. Certainly, talking with folks who have faced the challenges I am approaching and having someone to call on is a fantastic thing. And, it was a good time, as well.” – Jeffrey Cohen, Image Branding Group

“The conference was very helpful. Labor law and how it affects our industry, social media news and tips – those are just a few topics that I learned about while there. I think as many members as possible should take advantage of this opportunity.” – Robbie Ventura, Ventura Uniform Service

participants“The focus groups, the information I learned, the people I met, the networking – incredible bunch of people. There’s a lot I will take back with me. The sessions were fantastic, and I must say, even the exhibitors. Going through, we found some new suppliers. It was great!” – Jim Dewing, Derks Uniforms

“Everyone at the conference not only had a great time, they received some very serious takeaways. The guest speakers were phenomenal. It was time well spent.” – Harvey Klein, Red the Uniform Tailor
