2020 Annual Convention and Partners Trade Show
The Annual Convention and Partners Trade Show held in Oklahoma City where the theme The Power of Trust was the star of the show. Excitement was in the air after the unveiling of the first-ever Certification Program for the print and online directory publishing industry and the creation of the Trusted Local Directory™. Two initiatives that members agreed are industry game changers. Attendees felt a good balance of content and networking with presentations like How to Monetize Your Online Directory, What Keeps Salespeople Up at Night? and Effectively Compensating Your Sales Force for Success, all while enjoying a night at Toby Keith’s Bar & Grill and the meeting concluded perfectly with the Directory Excellence Awards Celebration on the last night.
“Just left the 2020 ADP Convention in Oklahoma City. I left feeling more motivated and excited about our industry than ever!” said Michael Doran of ATD Media.
