Hyde Sails held a conference for its worldwide network of distributors during the recent Southampton Boat Show.
A total of 31 distributors from the UK, Europe, Australia, the Far East, Canada and the USA gathered in Southampton for Hyde’s distributor conference, which was hailed a great success by all who attended.
It was an ideal opportunity for members of the extensive Hyde network to meet one another, in many cases for the first time. The conference offered a mixture of social time as well as seminars, enabling attendees to share ideas and learn from best practice. It was also an ideal opportunity to learn more about Hyde’s processes and products as well cementing relationships across the network.
Richard Franks, Hyde’s Sales & Marketing Director, explained: “The Hyde Sails Distributor network is a very important part of the Hyde brand business strategy. Holding a conference which enables the distributors to not only discuss ideas and opportunities but also reinforcing the Hyde Brand values is excellent!”
Alfred Caruna from Hyde Sails Malta was just one of the many overseas distributors in attendance. He said: “It was a pleasure to join and meet most of the team at Hyde. The presentations were very informative and inspiring. Thank you for the welcome I received and most of all for making me feel part of a wonderful team.”
Andy Ramsay from Hyde Sails Burnham, added: “It was good to meet other the team, other agents and distributors. It has given me inspiration to get my site up to scratch during the winter and develop the social media advertising to promote the Hyde brand.”
In recent years Hyde’s network of lofts in the UK, and worldwide, has grown considerably, offering technical support at local level. To find your local UK loft see www.hydesails.co.uk/contact.html
