Stampede capitalises on EU growth

Stampede capitalises on EU growth
AV distributor Stampede is capitalising on reports that suggest the European Union’s economy is rapidly improving, with a series of sales and vendor summits.

Kevin Kelly, president and COO of Stampede, said: “After years of stagnation and uncertainty, the European Union is, in our opinion, poised to grow substantially over the next several years.

“While the UK continues to face post-Brexit challenges, the EU is now growing on par with the United States.  A recovery that began in Germany and Spain is now gaining traction in other member economies. In fact, in the Q2 period the zone grew by 2.5%, as compared to US growth of 2.6% for the same period.”

The Stampede Summit Series starts in Munich, Germany on September 23, 2017 at the Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Hotel with a two-day planning sales summit involving Stampede’s entire UK and European sales management team.
“We will emerge from this intensive two-day session with our 2018 goals and objectives defined, our strategies set, and the outline of our channel specific promotion programs well underway,” Kelly said.  

On September 25 the Stampede team will head to London for the Stampede Vendor Summit and Big Book of AV Tour & Conference Series event at the Radisson Blue Edwardian Heathrow Hotel.  The Vendor Summit will feature a mix of business presentations and panel discussions and wrap-up with a Vendor Appreciation Party.

The UK and European Big Book of AV Tour and Conference series starts on September 26 with a dealer panel discussion focused on emerging trends and ways to leverage them. A vendor exhibit area offers resellers and customers a chance to explore technologies including Stampede’s Drone Cage.  In the afternoon attendees can engage in pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings to connect resellers with manufacturers to discuss specific individual needs.  The second day concludes with a networking cocktail reception and Power Up Dinner.
