WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Nationwide Marketing Group is planning to build on the momentum of its virtual PrimeTime event in October with the same format for its spring event, set for March 16-18.
“We look forward to finally getting back to face-to-face meetings later this year when it is safe to do so,” said Nationwide President and Chief Member Advocate Tom Hickman. “In the meantime, we are confident that we can work with our members and vendor partners once again to elevate the Virtual PrimeTime experience to even greater heights in March.”
At the October Virtual PrimeTime, more than 3,200 attendees from 1,300 member companies engaged with the platform more than 91,000 times. The Virtual PrimeTime experience also opened doors to 369 member companies that were able to attend PrimeTime for the first time.
The March event will be designed to build on those numbers by offering even more robust networking, educational and buying opportunities.
After that, Nationwide Marketing Group is in the early stages of planning regional road show events for spring 2021, once it’s declared safe to hold in-person meetings again.
“By March, you’re talking about more than one full year since our community has been able to meet face-to-face,” said Rick Bellows, senior vice president and head of Nationwide’s member services team. “Virtual PrimeTime will be another great opportunity to come together for networking, education and buying. But there’s also value in getting together in a room and idea sharing with your peers face-to-face. And once we get the all-clear, that’s exactly what we plan to do.”
