MHEDA Convention Sets the Stage for What's Next in Phoenix
More than 600 distributors and manufacturers joined MHEDA for the 64th Annual MHEDA Convention in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, for four days of networking, education and inspiration. This year's Convention theme was "Setting the Stage for What's Next" and featured speakers and education designed to show where the business climate and our industry is heading.
The keynote speaker for the event was Commander Mike Abrashoff, a Naval Commander who was able to turn around one of the worst performing ships in the U.S. Navy into the number one ship with the same crew in one year. His book, "It's Your Ship" demonstrates practical and inspirational ways that you can apply the same messages in your business. Other highlights of the event included presentations by Brian Beaulieu from ITR Economics, who discussed where the economy is heading in both the short- and long-term. Ryan Avery hosted a General Session on how to recruit and retain the next generation of leaders, Gene Marks gave two presentations, one on strategies for reducing your corporate and individual tax expenses and another on the latest technologies, trends, services and tools every business needs to know.
Be sure to join MHEDA for next year's Convention and Exhibitor Showcase, May 2-6, 2020, in Orlando, Florida at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek Hotel.
