Entertaining at the Sunday night dinner/gala will be Michael Dean Ester, a nationally recognized comic, well-known for working the college circuit. Ester has been described as a caring humanitarian who, during 2005, created the "Comedy for a Cure Tour," from which he donated $100 from every show on behalf of sponsoring schools to cancer research, using his unique gift of comedy to save lives.
Arley's Executive Vice President of Operations, Scott Levy, will give his state-of-the-business speech at the Sunday dinner gala, which has become a looked-forward-to happening by all guests over the last ten-plus years. Then, on Monday afternoon, the event will move to the Glen Oak Country Club for the always-popular golf outing.
"This year's event will feature many new 'value added' products," said Levy. "The market continues to rebound, especially the builder sector. As a result, Arley will introduce the firm's new iCat digital catalog. Our media team will be available to show attendees the amazing, interactive features of iCat. This is just another benefit we are offering our customer base, helping them build their own brand. iCat combined with our recently enhanced Design App, are indications of ongoing investments we are constantly making in our customers. Anyone with a browser, no matter if on a computer or mobile device will be able to use our iCat digital catalog. Anyone with an iPad will be able to use our Design App, as well."
As a wholesale-only supplier, Arley has created a strong private label program. Levy pointed out that attendees will find many new products, including a unique mosaic offering making it even easier to build an effective stocking program. "We are finding that more and more dealers are seeking to bundle their overall purchasing with a single wholesale source," said Levy. "The efficiencies of this approach have become apparent in building a more profitable business for our customers. Through a solid private label program, our goal is to make our customer the brand.
"Additionally, the many collections of products we'll have on display all have been thoroughly vetted by our highly professional research people," Levy went on to say. "This ensures that they will be representing exactly what today's consumer is looking for."
