A Look Back at DSA Annual Meeting

Booth PicStitchIf you were following us on Twitter (@LoyaltyDriver) at the beginning of the month, you know we attended the DSA Annual Conference in Orlando. In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of our time spent in booth #208.

After arriving on Saturday, we set up in record time, making sure everything was in place to greet our booth visitors the following day. Shout out to all of our clients who came by to say hello and get a picture with Michelle in the booth. We always love a chance to catch up!

This year’s theme was “One,” which fit in perfectly with the first ever Perfecting Partnerships Roundtable, designed to open lines of communication between member and supplier companies to help us work better as one. (Psst: Be on the lookout for an eBook recap of the roundtable!)

Author Jim Collins gave us a lot to think about during his general session about leadership, going from a good company to a great company, and how to carry on through hard times. My personal favorite take away from the session was when he asked, “How will you use this difficult time as a changing point in your life that in retrospect you would not change?”

 

Awards Night

Miranda, Paolo, and Colleen at the Awards Gala

Monday was a day full of sessions and exhibiting hours, but the events of the day could not compare with the excitement of the evening to come. The 2014 ETHOS Awards Gala was a night full of entertainment, good food, and celebrating the accomplishments of some truly great companies. After winning last year’s Partnership Award, our own Michelle Larter was asked to present this year’s award and was excited to recognize the accomplishments of some of our clients.

Our clients won each category in which they were nominated. Allow us a proud parent moment as we re-recognize our good friends: WineShop At Home (Marketing and Sales Campaign Award), Initials, Inc. (Excellence in Salesforce Development Award), SimplyFun, LLC (Technology Innovation Award), and last but not least Celadon Road (Rising Star Award). Congratulations!

Congratulations on your new Fitbit Loren!

The celebration continued on Tuesday, the last day of the conference, when each exhibiting booth announced the winners of their giveaways. The winner of our Fitbit Flex giveaway was Loren Castro Novi at Ahni & Zoe! We ended the conference at Walt Disney World at the “One INCREDIBLE Disney Evening” and I think it is safe to say that the conference as a whole was One Incredible event.
