Say "Yes!" to Phoenix in 2020

For those of you who were part of the fantastic National Tractor Parts Dealer Association Annual Meeting & Trade Show that just ended in Mobile, Alabama you KNOW ho much this means for not only business but also building relationships with fellow members.

However, for those of you who did not make the trip here is a quick video with some sights and sounds of our time together. Perhaps you'll catch the fever to be with us in Phoenix in January of 2020 or in social media #NTPDA20.

 

Not only does your association do great things for our members we also believe in "giving back". Last night at the St. Jude Auction member raised over $11,300 for the children's charity. Well done and it's how your association family rolls.

Look, next year we're at a wonderful venue in the Phoenix area...and, if you start planning now (like we are) Harrah Casino Floor you'll be prepared to join us for our 36th Annual Meeting and Trade Show which promises to be even bigger and better than Mobile.  Some things to consider:

  • Talk with your Board Members about what you would like to see in 2020;
  • Visit with us about your business needs and how we can assist in building your business;
  • Start to set aside some funds for airfare and lodging. A little set aside each month goes a long way;
  • Reach out to us with suggestions for our display area and networking.

The NTPDA is here for you and your business.

We hope to see you, through the year, and watch for our Summer Session in Sioux Falls.  Safe travels and thank you all for your membership and your interest in your association.

 

 


Wish You Were Here!

We are in Mobile for the 2019 NTPDA Annual Meeting and Trade Show and if you didn't make it...well, we wish you were here. We have so much coming up Mobile AL Night Shot that we know will help move your business and our industry forward. And, yes, we'll have time to get together with friends and actually do business.

For those of us who are here, and on the ground, the next few days will fly by. Our Early Bird Gathering is Thursday evening and, if you've ever been with us, you know it will be great.

On Friday we'll launch into "Going Beyond the Brand" which has everything to do with employee and customer engagement. How can we get our employees to become more engaged in what our customers want and need. Karen Video Grab 5 Oct 2018And, know what?  Most of that has to do with listening and being responsive. To get there Karen will talk about transparency and the customer experience. It's not always price but it is about winning.

Also on Friday we'll dive into your online presence with "Online Excellence - Redesigning Your Website From THe Ground Up".  What is it that consumers want to know and see when they first get to your site?  How can you use technology to create a winning relationship with your customer and how can your website engage? Nicholas will have answers to your questions.

And by the time we get to Thursday evening we'll be in our Trade Show area with dozens of opportunities to do business here in Mobile.

And, that's just Friday!!

We really do miss those of you who can't be here and we're going to do our best to get you to see the value, along with the fun, of being at our Annual Meeting and Trade Show.  Be watching out Facebook Page and our Twitter Stream @NTPDA all week long for updates, video clips and more.  You can also follow us by using the hashtag #NTPDA19!  Easy, no?

And, we haven't even talked about Saturday...yet.
