St. Louis, MO – October 13, 2023 — Facilisgroup, a leading software-as-a-service company, and partnering community within the promotional products industry, marked the finale of its 2023 Partner Summit series in Denver, Colorado. Following a successful Partner Summit held in Boston, Massachusetts in July, Facilisgroup offered a second summit to ensure the same experience to community members who were unable to attend in Boston.
“As an organization that prides itself on community, nothing tops the face-to-face experience we can achieve at a Facilisgroup event,” said Jim Manno, Vice President of Marketing at Facilisgroup. “Bringing our Distributor Partners, Preferred Suppliers, and Facilisgroup team together to learn, share best practices, and celebrate in Denver has been a true highlight of our year.”
The three-day summit brought together Facilisgroup Distributor Partners and Preferred Suppliers from across the promotional products industry, providing them with engaging networking opportunities and valuable insights into industry trends and innovations. Notably, attendees engaged through Facilisgroup’s exclusive workshop, Sized Solutions, designed to foster connections in smaller, more intimate groups through thoughtful discussions on business opportunities and challenges.
Following their well-received presentations in Boston, TEDx Talk presenter and author Justine Froelker and AI Futurist Alex Salkever returned to the summit stage. Froelker set the tone on day two inspiring attendees to embrace fearless authenticity in their leadership roles. Salkever later reprised his presentation on transformative technology, highlighting its potential to optimize operations within the promotional products industry.
Additionally, Facilisgroup had the privilege of hosting Ellen Tucker, Vice President of Revenue and Expositions at PPAI, as a keynote speaker at the summit. Tucker delivered the State of the Industry, imparting valuable insights, the most recent developments in promotional products news, and a wealth of expertise to the attendees.
Day two concluded with supplier-led dine-arounds, or group dinners, a hit with attendees at the Boston summit. This time, guests enjoyed Denver’s unique flavors while networking with fellow industry leaders on a more personalized level.
As with all Facilisgroup events, community and giving back played significant roles in the summit experience.
Through the non-profit organization Wish for Wheels, participants came together to make a positive impact on young lives by building brand-new bikes for children in the Denver area.
The grand finale of this three-day event culminated in an unforgettable Aprés-ski-style after-party at Mile High Station. Attendees enjoyed a lively atmosphere with cocktails, interactive culinary stations, and the sounds of The Marty Nightengale Band, creating lasting memories of camaraderie and celebration.
