Southeast Publications announced that during its 2015 National Awards and Training Conference, it raised $35,000 for the KOA Care Camps. The money was raised from its sales associates during the Conference at the annual Auction for the Camp, which was then matched by CEO Wally Warrick.
“While Southeast Publications’ legacy continues to be the industry leader in producing millions of Guest Guides each year for RV properties across the nation, our company is honored to support KOA Care Camps each year,” said Warrick in a press release. “Over the years, our associates have given $595,000 to support the KOA Care Camps.”
Other highlights during the conference included:
• The unveiling of the new MobileRVing.com site and its benefits for the RV properties and advertisers.
• Adding 140 additional RV properties to the Southeast Publications portfolio.
• Annual awards for outstanding performance of its associates.
During the conference, sales associates learned about the successes of 2014, trained on the new offerings for their customers, were recognized and rewarded for their efforts during the last year. In all, 100 associates attended this event.
“Our associates produced more Guest Guides worked with more than 16,000 advertisers across close to 1,400 RV properties,” said Southeast Publications Business Development Sales Manager Brian McGuinn. “They also earned some of the highest commissions in the Guest Guide industry. They still traveled to New Orleans eager to learn about the new opportunities to improve their processes which, in turn, helps their RV properties and advertisers.”
“The game changer this year is Southeast Publications’ RVer search engine, MobileRVing.com,” McGuinn added. “After attending this conference, our associates will be introducing their RV properties how Southeast Publications can help market their facility, talking to advertisers on how we can get their message to more RVers.”
