Azione Reaches Milestone of 200 Dealers
Chester Springs, PA – (September 27, 2018) – This week Azione Unlimited reached its milestone of 200 dealer members, with many of the recent additions representing new geographic regions for the education and buying group. In the first nine months of 2018, Azione strategically added 24 new members as part of its growth plan. Last year brought the addition of 17 total new dealers.
Founded 6+ years ago, Azione Unlimited remains the only integrator buying group where both dealers and vendors are equal members, and has rapidly grown into the leading consortium of custom installers, home technology professionals and manufacturers, whose common focus is the affluent residential segment.
“Azione now comprises 201 of the industry’s best integrators, creating an incredible core of knowledge,” says Azione President Richard Glikes. “Many of our newest members have been watching the group for years, and decided now is the time to embrace the many benefits of being an Azione Member. At the fall conference in two weeks, our newest dealers will experience the camaraderie, idea-sharing, and partnerships that are all unique to joining the Azione family.”
Prestigious New Vendors Bring New Ideas to Azione Dealers
The vendor side of Azione membership has also experienced significant and strategic growth this year. The first half of the year included the addition of a prestigious list of vendor members, including AudioQuest, Barco, Google Home, James Loudspeaker, Sonos, and Lyngdorf Audio. Azione also made its formal entry into the lighting market with the addition of vendors Lumastream and Wolfers Lighting, giving dealers a lucrative opportunity backed by training and support.
One-of-a-Kind Opportunities Abound at Azione Events
This past Spring brought Azione’s largest Conference ever, Philosophically Phocused in Philadelphia. Azione introduced the first-ever Experience Rooms at an industry conference. These interactive spaces provided dealers with opportunities to connect with Azione vendors and try out products to see and hear the features and performance quality while experiencing the technology first-hand.
In June, integrators embraced the opportunity to support the rising stars of their organization with the Key Leaders Conference. Designed to excite and inspire those on the front lines in an organization, the conference gave 62 attendees the chance to learn from the best in their field at roundtable discussions and presentations and enjoy the numerous networking benefits of an Azione conference.
As the fourth quarter of 2018 approaches, Azione continues the strategic growth trajectory that sets it apart from other groups. The buying group is also preparing for its Fall Conference, The Donnée in Denver, which will feature a line-up of several thought-provoking speakers as well as team building activities.
