Partmaster conquers Hampton Downs
Partmaster held its annual conference at Hampton Downs in the Waikato from Friday October 12 through to Sunday October 14.
The conference has become an annual highlight, and the attendees included all managers, sales representatives, and head office executives, along with suppliers.
Work sessions were complemented by social activities and motor sport on the famous Hampton Downs race track, and the conference culminated in the annual black tie awards dinner, with the ultimate award “Branch of the Year” going to Partmaster Henderson.
Phil and Steve Covic, Partmaster’s owners, were on hand to present the awards.
There were various levels of supplier sponsorship, Gold, Silver and Bronze and Partmaster thanks all who participated.
A feature of the programme was the annual “speed dating” session, where groups of four work around the 13 sponsors to pick up the latest product knowledge, product innovations and sales tips.
One delegate from the lower North Island was heard to say: “this was our best conference ever, the venue, the motor racing, the functions, the people – it was magnificent.”
Motor sport activities included simulators, skid pan and hot laps, and the Auckland Car Club need to be thanked for providing their vehicles and expertise.
Hampton Downs was a great venue, commented Partmaster CEO John Cook.
The big question being asked is “where to next year?” – will it be Taupo, Cromwell or maybe the Gold Coast. For more information contact Richard Casey 027 4 81 8222.
