AD Electrical Celebrates Success at
The 2018 AD Spring Network Meeting
Wayne, PA – AD Electrical hosted the 2018 AD Spring Network Meeting at the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 through Friday, April 20, 2018. AD announced a 9% increase in attendance with more than 240 attendees from 163 AD Independent Distributor companies from the US, Canada and Mexico at this year’s event.
Throughout the meeting, AD members networked and shared best practices in their structured networks of non-competing member companies, led by trained volunteer member facilitators. AD Networks are filled with smart and successful entrepreneurs who are ready to share their ideas for growth.
The meeting highlights included a New Products Showcase that was exclusive to AD’s Silver Marketing Partners who shared the latest products and solutions on the market, as well as three country-specific Business Meetings where the AD team communicated updates on programs and services. AD eCommerce Solutions, now live with 3M SKUS, along with AD HR Services and Procurement Services programs collectively saved AD members more than $6 Million in non-product purchases and HR Services in 2017. In addition, the AD Digital Demand Program is driving traffic to 97% of our member’s branches and the AD US Rewards Program is growing at almost double the market rate, with over 6,300 highly engaged participants.
To compliment the ongoing success of AD’s programs, Ed Crawford, President of AD’s Electrical Division commented, “Total US Electrical remittances were up 19% for full year 2017, and this year is also starting out strong, up nearly 15% in the first quarter. We have a lot to celebrate. We’re on a roll and well positioned for the future!”
