2014 ByDesign Technologies Users Conference

bdtUserConf2014-037Our 2014 ByDesign Users Conference was a great day to welcome in 50 of our clients to ByDesign Technologies headquarters in Tampa. It was a day to celebrate companies that were just starting as well as those who had been in business for many years.  The valued clients traveled from as far away as California and the Dominican Republic to come and learn how they could get more out of their Freedom systems.

Our 2014 Conference started with a great dinner the night before at the historic Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City, Tampa.  Vendor Partner, The Connection, sponsored the dinner and the team was thrilled to showcase their partnership as well as enjoy the delicious Spanish food, from paella to flan, it was a delicious evening filled with great conversation and networking.

Excitement was in the air early the next morning, as the staff stood along the red carpeted walkway clapping and welcoming the clients in to a great day. Just as they are everyday, the clients were the VIP’s.  They were greeted with a great breakfast and the programming quickly began.

The day was packed full of information with as many as four speakers running at one time.Top areas of interest were J. Hilburn’s presentation on API’s, promotions and learning about the new Business Intelligence tool ByDesign launched at the conference.

During the CEO lunch sponsored by Meritus, incentive travel company DRP and Hard Rock Resorts gave away two 3 night stays as well as a cruise to our hard working executives.  This was an exciting time for our companies’ CEO’s!

Nothing was forgotten, from the networking break to the ToGo Boxes with snacks for the road, each portion of the day was crafted to provide the utmost value to our clients.Christina Hale with J. Hilburn stated, “It was so helpful to meet and connect with other clients. We were able to swap suggestions, ideas, previous challenges, etc.”

Ultimately, that is what we hoped for.  We wanted to create a day that would add value for the Freedom system, but ultimately, help our clients understand they are not alone.  The direct selling industry has a mighty voice if they can find it together.
