On behalf of Millennium Buying Group members, I am excited to welcome you to join us in celebrating our 18th year at the 2019 Millennium Buying Group Annual Sales Conference. The MBG continues to grow with the addition of one new member since last year’s meeting. A goal is to add several more members prior to the 2019 meeting while we search for conscientious candidates that share our core values, are financially stable and responsible, aspire to grow and learn from peers, and can add value to the group. Our 27-members have continued to expand with record growth reported for the 2018 season by nearly all members. Additionally, businesses are expanding by opening new retail locations; now standing at 51 collectively. The 2019 meeting looks to expand on our past meetings successes with more education for members. For first time vendors, the MBG meeting is an excellent opportunity to grab the attention of elite pool, spa, and patio professional retailers and construction companies with formal presentation and a tradeshow. Importantly, group hosted lunches, breakout time, and free evenings are vital opportunities to build relationships with members. Most buying decisions by MBG members are made at the conference.
I look forward to seeing all vendor participants.
