Put points on the board with Summit

By Alan Wolf, YSN

The theme of next week’s Summit 2024 is “WIN.” It’s a positive affirmation of BrandSource members’ dedication and resilience, and their achievements past, present and future.

For many of us, “win” is associated with sports and points on the board. It’s a big part of our culture, but winning extends beyond the gridiron and outfield.

For an independent dealer, winning has many scoreboards. Topping the list is building a business that can provide a good life for one’s family and the generations to follow. But dealers also win by creating advancement opportunities for employees, by giving back to their communities and yes, by kicking some big-box butt along the way.

Regardless of the scenario, winning is a dynamic force that also helps people navigate challenges with grace and achieve new heights. In a sense, that’s what AVB BrandSource is all about — helping members reach their fullest potential. To do that, the group has developed a rich mix of merchandising, marketing and support services that address virtually every aspect of retail operations. Whether you’re running a not-for-profit service department; need help with your help wanted ads; are looking for a competitive edge in home furnishings; or seek traffic-driving brand exposure, BrandSource got you covered. You merely need to pick from the playbook to win.

Here’s another easy win: attending next week’s AVB Summit in Las Vegas. There, all the tools, merchandise and support needed to run a winning retail operation will be in one place at one time — as will fellow BrandSource members from across the continent, with whom you can share and compare winning strategies.

Bottom line, winning is a testament to the human spirit’s capacity for achievement and the pursuit of excellence, no matter your pursuits. But when it comes to home goods, count on AVB for the win.
