Celebrating the 9th Annual Pond Expo, Blue Thumb Distributing ended the summer season with a bang. Over 60 companies from all over the United States traveled into Saginaw Michigan on August 30th to attend a dual event- Early Buy Pond Expo for Retailers looking to catch a glimpse of what is new for 2013 and a Contractor Open House with seminars, hands-on training and round table discussions held throughout the day. Up and above the networking there were plenty of opportunities to visit face-to-face with over 20 of the industry’s leading manufacturers.
Attendees realize there are few times throughout the busy season to spend on the phone talking, troubleshooting or learning about the vast array of pond products on the market. The Pond Expo delivers high impact value into one fun-filled event and is worth the time investment on many levels.
Local support by the Nursery Landscape Association and Blue Thumb’s personal banker from Citizens Bank helped attendees learn more ways to connect grow and plan for future business. As attendees prepare to enter the fall season, many left feeling energized and focused on the business at hand. In the words of one of this season’s attendees- “Great Staff, Great Give-Aways, Vendors and Products”!
Planning has begun for the big 10th Annual Pond Expo in 2013 which will prepare both new and existing water feature customers for transitions between online and retail shopping and ways to connect with Millennials, tomorrow’s future customer!
