In late March, America’s Best Cleaners (ABC) hosted a Live Accelerator meeting in Louisville, KY, which focused on the theme of “convenience,” – as affiliates explores various strategies and tools to drive business growth and enhance the client experience. The three-day event was hosted by Nu-Yale Cleaners.
ABC Executive Director Chris White noted, “There is nothing better than when our affiliates get together in person and are able to experience a business application, concept and specific technology that enhance the level of service we can provide to our clients. We appreciate the team at Nu-Yale Cleaners for providing us access to see how their 24/7 kiosks have had a positive impact on their business.”
The event began with an opening reception at Overdrive where affiliates had the chance to participate in ax throwing, a virtual reality rage room and a racing simulation. On the following day, attendees learned about the benefits of 24/7 kiosk technology and delivery services before taking part in a tour and critique of the Nu-Yale facility.
Later that afternoon, a “Convenience of the Future” panel discussion featured Tom Beidle of Spot by Xplor, Nathaniel Dubasik of Metalprogetti, Mark Albrecht of The Route Pros, Dave Troemel of BeCreative360 and Jeff Quail of Sankosha.
“By bringing together the best minds in the industry, including the leaders at Spot, Sankosha, Metalprogetti, Kreussler, The Route Pros and BeCreative360, we enhanced the level of engagement and thought leadership we strive to provide at our events,” added White. “We thank these sponsoring partners for taking part in a very forward-thinking panel discussion on how we can improve our businesses and better serve our clients. There was an optimistic energy in the room as we discussed our successes and what the future holds.”
The first day concluded with affiliates enjoying dinner and bourbon tasting at the 21c Museum Hotel Louisville.
On the second day, affiliates engaged in an AI Hackathon where teams tried to solve several complex business challenges using AI tools to craft solutions, strategies and actionable applications to enhance productivity.
Next up, ABC will host a Live Accelerator meeting from Sept. 13 to 15, in New York, NY. The theme of that event will be “Fashion” and it will be hosted by Embassy Cleaners. For more information, visit them at www.americasbestcleaners.com.
