Essence Corp successfully attended the 1st annual Summit of the Americas this past March 18-21, 2018, at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, FL. The event was put together by the IAADFS and ASUTIL organizations, replacing the IAADFS Duty-Free Show of the Americas and ASUTIL Conference, bringing together the best of both worlds.
The Essence Corp 2,000 sq. ft. exhibit remained busy at all times, as usual. Business partners and associates were greeted by our sales and marketing teams to present novelties, discuss strategies, and solidify business plans for the upcoming year.
The show was kicked off as participants set their alarms, laced up their running shoes, and showed up for some fun at the 5K Fun Run/Walk on Sunday morning, which was sponsored by Essence Corp. Hand In Hand in Haiti was the chosen beneficiary, benefiting the school Lycee Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable.
As the first day of meetings wrapped up on Monday evening, the Essence family welcomed over 200 guests directly on our booth, to share a drink together, catch up with old friends, and meet new ones.
Save-the-Date for next year’s Summit of the Americas, which will take place March 24-27, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando.
