Dealers “Hit Jackpot” in Las Vegas: Education and Fun Combine at 2012 Guardian Authorized Dealer Convention
Wednesday, April 11, 2012 by Cassandra H.
Guardian celebrated its own brand of March Madness this year – the annual Guardian Protection Services Authorized Dealer Convention was held March 29th and 30th in fabulous Las Vegas!
All authorized Guardian dealers were invited to attend the convention, which was held at the beautiful five-star Encore hotel located right in the heart of the Vegas strip and timed in conjunction with the security industry’s annual ISC West convention. Over 50 authorized dealers and 96 total attendees kicked off the conference on Thursday, the 29th. Everyone was invited to an afternoon golf tournament where participants were able to unwind while playing 18 holes at the lush Royal Links Golf Course and receiving skill-based prizes as well. An evening meet-and-greet was held over cocktails at the beautiful La Cave restaurant and lounge inside the Encore.
On Friday, the convention got down to business beginning with a state of the union address by Larry Wargo, Executive Vice President of Guardian. The convention presentations included technology rollouts, training updates, and new methods of increasing lead generation. Information-packed dialogues covering sales and web marketing were also conducted, as well as presentations on new product lines and equipment from vendors Interlogix, Honeywell and Alarm.com.
One special evening was dedicated to celebrating the efforts of Guardian’s most successful dealers. A dozen awards for excellence in the areas of account generation and account quality were presented. In a surprise twist, as Caribbean music filled the air, the “Above and Beyond Award” was announced. This dream vacation for two to a destination of the winner’s choosing will be awarded to one lucky Guardian authorized dealer at next year’s convention. It’s safe to say that Guardian’s dealers will be working harder than ever in 2012 as they compete for this special prize.
Ryan Torrence, an authorized Guardian dealer from Safe N Sound, gave this year’s convention a rave review: “The Guardian Convention is always an awesome time. The golfing, education and networking with the other dealers is the best. Big thanks to the entire Guardian crew.”
