The Belknap White Group (BWG) hosted an Open House on September 11 at its Rochester, New York Solution Center.
Thirteen suppliers demonstrated products and offered tips to the event’s 85 guests. Topics included the latest in flooring design ideas, new and exciting materials, finishing touches and installation products. Educational, hands-on demonstrations included a new tools and a ceramic/shower installation segment.
“This event is held every year, and this was our biggest turnout yet,” stated Mike Maslyn, BWG’s Branch Manager of the Rochester Division. “We had quite a few new customers attend… and, it was the biggest vendor participation we’ve ever had.”
The Belknap White Group hosted its 38th Annual Golf Outing the following day, September 12, at the Victor Hills Golf Club in Victor, New York.
Guests were able to both golf and mingle with colleagues, BWG representatives, and suppliers. The tournament saw 20 teams participate in the four-person scramble, and a two-way tie for first place; the tie breaker being decided by the 8th hole score for both teams.
“All of our vendors supported us equally,” said Maslyn regarding the week’s events. “The many door prizes, which were generously donated by our vendors, were well received. Without their support combined with the precise planning from the Victor Hills Golf Club staff, our event could not have been more successful.”
“It was great to meet firsthand with our customers offsite, while they were removed from their rigorous daily demands,” noted BWG’s Vice President-Branch Sales & Operations (Mansfield, Massachusetts), Dan Doyle. “That, coupled with our meals and contests, made for an instructive, but very fun and relaxing afternoon,” he concluded.
