Attendance numbers were even better than expected at Network VEKA’s recent Business Centre event, where more than 50 companies came along to brush up on all the benefits that come with membership of the industry’s leading installer support organisation.
Visitors to the event, held at The National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, included existing members of Network VEKA, and representatives from companies interested in finding out more about the organisation.
The day began with a ‘mini exhibition’ featuring more than 20 stands showcasing some of Network VEKA’s affiliate partners. Visitors were able to speak to representatives from these affiliates about the products and services that are available to Network VEKA members at favourable rates.
The mini exhibition also allowed visitors to find out more about The Network VEKA Academy, Network VEKA marketing activity, finance options, arched frames, garage doors, recycling and much, much more with the opportunity to chat to members of the team and have demonstrations of the services on offer.
Following this, there were a number of presentations to ensure that members were aware of all the latest goings on, including a new consumer marketing campaign that is designed to generate leads for members from targeted consumers.
Network VEKA MD John Ogilvie, said: “We were delighted to see so many attendees at the Business Centre Event and we’ve had lots of really positive feedback. Visitors heard presentations from Shermin Finance, HAS Resolution services, The Vocational College and our marketing team, who showcased Network VEKA’s upcoming consumer campaign.
“This was a great opportunity to make sure that member companies are squeezing every last drop out of their membership! We are constantly updating all the benefits and available services, so it’s important that we make sure members know of everything that’s available to them. It also gave us chance to invite prospective members along and show them all the support services they could be taking advantage of.
“Our raffle was also a great success, and I’m thrilled to report that we raised over £700 for The Encephalitis Society. We were able to offer some great prizes thanks to the generosity of our affiliate partners, including the ‘star prize’ of a 32” TV from UK Fasteners which was won by Graeme Pritt of The Window Outlet.”
