Overhead Door™ Distributors from all over the nation came to Scottsdale, Arizona for this year’s National Ribbon Distributor Meeting! The meeting was centered around this year’s theme, Driven to Win, which featured engaging educational sessions to help our distributors stay driven to win in every aspect of business.
The first night featured distributors heading to the Sunset Pool at the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess to enjoy a buffet of many different cuisines. After the great meal, everyone enjoyed live music and hanging out at the unique sand banked pool. The night was capped off by a spectacular fireworks show. This was a special kickoff celebrating our 98th year of business, which has been possible only because of the incredible family of Overhead Door™ distributors.
We officially opened the National Ribbon Distributor Meeting with speeches from CEO Kelly Terry, President of the Access Systems Division Jamie Byrne and a message from our Senior Advisor from Sanwa Tony Doba.
Guests attended the product showcase to learn about new offerings from the Overhead Door™ brand. Recent additions to the residential and commercial door lineups were featured along with new openers. One of the exciting items highlighted was the new connected device ability that Overhead Door® openers now have, enabling homeowners to control their garage doors through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant with the award winning OHDAnywhere® technology. We also had educational sessions involving our latest technology updates, upcoming products launches, coaching teams, sharing knowledge, and marketing.
We handed out a lot of awards this year, and we are thankful for all our distributors who go above and beyond to win for our brand. The awards ceremony also featured a special award, presented by CEO Kelly Terry, to former CEO Dennis Stone for his invaluable years of leadership and service to Overhead Door Corporation.
We made sure to send our guests off in style, heading to the Scottsdale Fairmont Princesses Western Town, Copper Canyon, on the final night. Our guests enjoyed games, a mechanical bull, dancing and live music and a fire show to end the night.
Thank you to everyone who attended the National Ribbon Distributor Meeting and for being a part of the Overhead Door™ distributor family. Scottsdale was a great place to gain strategies and growing together to keep each other Driven to Win! We can’t wait to see everyone again next year!
