Partners & Suppliers Build Relationships at Annual Summit


Partners and Suppliers recently attended an energizing event designed to foster community and encourage the development of business best practices. The 2016 Facilisgroup Partner Summit &

Supplier Showcase in Clearwater Beach, Fla., June 21-23 brought the Facilisgroup community together for education, networking, and relationship building.

“I thought this was the best partner event I’ve ever been to. You’ve set the bar so incredibly high I don’t know how you are going to continually deliver at this level,” said Jamie McCabe, President of McCabe Promotional Advertising, Inc.

The event brought together the best and brightest minds in the promotional products industry with more than 400 attendees, including Owners, along with 154 of their top-performing Sales Reps, and 108 Supplier representatives.

“We offer our Partners three distinct competitive advantages – Community, Technology, and Supplier Relationships. Events help to build on these principles by engaging and strengthening our community,” said Facilisgroup CEO, Chuck Fandos.

Event attendees had the opportunity to learn about @ease software’s newest version, V2, and to participate in size solution groups where they could network and share business best practices with like-sized companies.

Partners also attended the 2016 Supplier Showcase, a tradeshow for Facilisgroup Preferred Suppliers. The Showcase gave Suppliers the opportunity to present their newest and most popular products to Owners and top Sales Reps while developing relationships and proposing creative solutions. Preferred Suppliers are selected for their excellent customer service, high-quality product selection, and experience in the industry.

“This was my very first Facilisgroup event and I must say this was one of the best events I have attended in my 40 years of doing these!” said Fran Ford, President of Castelli/The Magnet Group.

“The time spent with the vendors was what I think to be the most productive vendor time I have ever had in the 25 years I have been in this industry! I walked away feeling appreciated and with ideas, which is so hard to do at our regular shows,” Paul LeClerc, Account Executive with McCabe Promotional Advertising, Inc., and a member of the Facilisgroup 2015 Achiever’s Club.

The community also bonded during evening events, which included the Beach Glow Games & a Yacht StarShip cruise.

Facilisgroup plans several events per year to educate and support its community. These events are also scheduled:

• New User Training for Sales Reps and CSRs in St. Louis, MO, September 12-13, 2016 • Achiever’s Bash, Sessions, and Partner Meetings at the PPAI Las Vegas show, January 9-12, 2017

• 2017 Partner Summit in San Diego, CA, June 13-15, 2017
