Rich and Heather Draper of The Ice Cream Club, Inc. are regular attendees at the annual All Star convention. They have found that the event includes a pertinent agenda, educational and motivational speakers and invaluable networking opportunities. We were pleased to hear what Rich and Heather had to say about their experiences at the All Star convention throughout the years:
“The annual All Star Purchasing convention is a fixture on our calendar. Each year we gather in a fun place with our industry associates. The association always has an informative and topical program arranged. Whatever the industry is facing, or will be facing, is on the agenda. You will hear from industry experts, motivational speakers, company representatives and even enjoy first rate entertainment after the business at hand is complete.
Besides the programs, the networking with other industry folks is invaluable. We are all busy and can reach a point where we want to retreat versus engage. But, after three days being with people who share the same trials and tribulations as well as hopes and dreams, you will come back invigorated and ready to tackle the world. We make our industry better when we tackle problems together.
As you have heard before, issues like food safety are not a competitive advantage. We learn from each other to provide the safest products on the planet. If you have not attended the All Star convention, you owe it to yourself, your company and your customers to give it a try.”
