OMNIMOUNT HOSTS ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTOR CONFERENCE FOR BEST PRACTICES AND PRODUCT TRAINING

Annual Conference Brings Together Representatives from Nineteen Countries for Annual Educational and Networking Event

PHOENIX, AZ. - May 10, 2007 - OmniMount, one of the global leaders in both consumer and commercial mounting solutions, is pleased to announce the success of their 3rd annual international dealer conference, which took place at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix, at the end of last month. Representatives from nineteen countries attended the 3 -day event to share best practices, gain knowledge of new product offerings and discuss business strategies for the remainder of the year. The importance of this conference has grown exponentially as the international business has increased year over year.


"This event proves to be more successful and insightful each year," said Scott Ashbaugh, OmniMount director of sales operations, US and export. "We take this opportunity to spend valuable time with some of our largest international distributors, educate them on our products and brand marketing efforts and then find innovative ways to support their growing businesses." Countries represented at this year's conference include Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Czech Republic, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Australia, Chile, New Zealand, China, Germany, Portugal, Mexico, Israel, Switzerland, Ukraine and Iceland.

Throughout the conference, time is focused on general product training, discussions of the company's international sales and marketing initiatives, distributor presentations on best practices and valuable one -on -one meetings. Although it's not all work and no play. "While largely informational for all parties, the event is also designed to promote networking and partnership on a global level," explains Geoff Miller, OmniMount executive vice president. Attendees are welcome to bring their families to enjoy the beautiful resort and tour the Phoenix area, where the company is headquartered. "The last evening is traditionally dedicated to honoring our guests and showing our gratitude for their dedicated affiliation with OmniMount," Miller also adds. "In customary OmniMount style, crystal cactus awards are presented for outstanding sales and serve as a friendly reminder of our time together."

Planning has already begun for the 2008 event; the dates will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.
