Whilst Britain was being battered by winter-style storms, Panasonic dealers were sunning themselves in a Mediterranean heat wave thanks to distributor Nimans.
Representatives from 12 nationwide dealers travelled to the luxury five-star Castillo Son Vida Hotel in Mallorca to enjoy plenty of rest and relaxation as part of Nimans’ renowned Select partner programme which offers all the benefits of direct account status through distribution. Massage sessions, gourmet meals and visit to an exclusive beach club hotel formed part of a top class itinerary in the island’s historic capital of Palma.
Nimans’ Panasonic Business Manager, Ian Brindle, said the long weekend away rewarded not just the highest sales performers but also the best newcomer and best percentage growth businesses, helping Nimans retain its position as Panasonic’s number one UK distributor.
“The trip was a tremendous success with great camaraderie built up by all the dealers but we returned to the UK to face torrential downpours, having enjoyed temperatures well over 90 degrees Fahrenheit,” he said.
The exclusive Nimans’ Select membership scheme rewards brand loyalty and brings resellers and vendors closer together. In addition to a spectacular annual trip, a range of other impressive benefits can also be sampled by dealers – with Nimans currently putting the finishing touches to next year’s enhanced programme.
Chris Jones, Principle of Cheshire Business Services thoroughly enjoyed the trip and says Nimans is a great business partner. “We have an excellent working relationship with Nimans who provide all the support we need to grow our business. The Mallorca trip was fantastic, set in a lovely place with some very nice people. I was glad to be out of the rain-soaked UK, being completely spoilt in the Spanish sunshine.”
His positive comments were shared by Gareth Mundy, Director of London-based Panatec who said: “The location was breathtaking. We had everything we could have wished for. The trip was very well organised and put together. It was the perfect long weekend.”
