The Generation Map

It is now a fact: There are generational differences in communication, work aspirations, and connection that must be addressed for both client-side activities, as well as in the hiring and retention of employees. We have a most enlightening, helpful and substantiated keynote on this very subject for Reunion 2023!

While we know that our own demographics within the Network are changing, we also need to learn about how to attract and engage talent effectively. At the same time, we need to meet the changing needs of our clients, which are often younger and communicate differently from what we have traditionally known. Experience this luncheon keynote presented by Gemini – you will be armed with invaluable tools!

AMPED Products

For many, this is a favorite daytime session – bringing the very latest new technologies and services to Members – sometimes before the rest of the industry knows! From brilliant stopping power, to precise sophistication, to endless creative possibilities, here are resources to fit any type of project. A sample list of what’s in the works:

  • Flexi: Wish You Knew This Before…!
  • Portable Backlit Kiosk – Roll or Hang!
  • Modern Project Management App!
  • Reflective Media Reflections!
  • NEW Van Ladder Utility!

Employees Only

A classic training technique, realistic idea “test drives” are a best practice in our industry. It has worked across all industries and all levels for years. Here’s our twist: A POWOW for employees only! They get the real deal scoop on problem solving, work order practices that really work, time management, and how to get rid of hiccups! This roundtable could reduce turnover as staff gets real world answers to bring home.

We create the space where people want to share experiences or ask questions!

Better Trucks

Did you miss the Atlanta buzz!! The Van Ladder trucks are the new Must Have bucket trucks, they are incredible! Already, Members are purchasing their new shiny truck and you get a chance to see it up close with a personal Q&A session! Yes! Van Ladder is here and will park in a specially designated spot at the Tropicana Resort – just for Sign Bizzers!! But wait, there’s more! Van Ladder has NEW features to show – be in the know, see this AMPED panelist!
