Around 950 member companies and over 4,000 attendees made the trek to Nashville this week for the Nationwide Marketing Group’s PrimeTime! Conference. Once there, they were entertained by the likes of top-tier music talent (including performances at the Grand Ole Opry by some of their own), exposed to the wares of some 200 product and services vendors, educated by multiple seminars on business management, marketing and sales, and reassured by a bullish Robert Weisner, the group’s co-CEO with co-CEO Les Kirk, that Nationwide would continue to be “the savior of the independent.

Nationwide Marketing Group announced Friday that as of next year, Robert Weisner and Les Kirk will serve as co-CEOs. Dave Bilas, meanwhile, will become president and COO.

Nationwide Marketing Group CEO Robert Weisner said that the organization’s PrimeTime! Show, held this week in Orlando at the cavernous Gaylord Palms Resort, drew 3,400 total dealer and vendor attendees  – a record for the semi-annual East Coast exhibition and the first time each of the divisions had exceeded their attendance goals.

Nationwide Marketing Group said Friday that online registration is open for the next Nationwide PrimeTime event, which is scheduled for Feb. 26-29 at the Gaylord Palms Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando.
