As supplier members to the International Association of Movers, we were honoured to attend the organisation’s 2015 conference in San Diego in October as sponsors.
With so many of our clients in attendance we were able to catch up with many of our worldwide customers and review how our services are performing face to face.
“We have been attending the conference for over 5 years now since realising our global offering was a great fit for so many worldwide movers, regardless of location,” said Managing Director David Raynor. “The invitation from IAM to also sponsor the event this year was something we were delighted to accept”.
Running from October 18th-21st, the IAM conference is a great opportunity to meet other companies in our global industry and hear more about the challenges and opportunities they are encountering. From the impending introduction of container weighing worldwide and the new cyber security issues facing relocation suppliers, to the main business of meeting up with global partners and ensuring business continues to develop between them, there was plenty for delegates to discuss and learn.
It was clear that some areas of the globe are still finding their respective economies challenging, but it was encouraging to see that many companies felt business was improving overall.
The business sessions were well attended and the social events, including some excellent fund raising events for the organisation’s charities, were meticulously planned and enjoyed by all.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many clients, catching up with old friends and making a few new ones too. We’re already looking forward to next year and New Orleans!
