Azione Vendors Meet in Arizona
22 vendors of buying group Azione Unlimited, representing 18 companies, met last week at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, according to an email from founder Richard Glikes.
The event, Azione's first-ever vendor-only meeting, took place prior to the IPRO conference. Topics of discussion included “How to Grow Both Dealer and Vendors Profits” and “How to Create More Value for Dealer Members”.
“Most businesses typically work in a reactionary mode. I thought that looking forward and planning for a positive outcome for next year would illuminate the pathways to prosperity for dealers and vendors alike,” Glikes said in a statement.
“This was an extremely worthwhile exercise with trenchant concepts from bright vendors flying around the space. We were all energized by the process, and the thought that we had crafted a plan for the betterment of all parties. I look forward to replicating the event next year.”
