Over 300 parts managers and owners, including Utility suppliers and dealers attended this year’s Dealer Meeting at the Belterra Casino Resort & Spa in Florence, Indiana from June 20th to 23rd.
“This year’s theme, Rolling Ahead Together represents not only the riverboat casino venue where the meeting took place, but also our successful future working together as a unified support network,” said Michael Moore, Utility’s Aftermarket Parts’ Director.
Guests were welcomed with a cocktail reception on the rooftop of the riverboat casino on the first day of arriving at the resort. General sessions took place on the next day where Utility executives including guest speaker, Steve Zaborowski from Xtra Lease gave informative presentations on fleet maintenance and other related industry topics. Breakout sessions took place with participating vendors: Bendix, Hendrickson, US Liner, Jost, Grote, Illinois Auto Clutch, and Kinedyne. Later in the evening, a dinner reception and award ceremony was held to honor Utility Aftermarket Parts’ top performers in 2012.
Over 50 supplier booths exhibited during the trade show and guests had the option of participating in fun activities which included a round of golf at the Belterra Golf Club or Zip Lining through the rugged hills of Southeast Indiana. The meeting ended with a grand tour of Utility’s Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center in Batavia, OH and an impromptu tour of Grote Industries factory in Madison, IN.
