The UPS Stores held their biennial convention in Las Vegas in early July. The franchisees meet every other year to allow the nationwide locations to get together to network, receive updates from corporate, meet with vendors who work with the stores and, of course, fun.
The theme for 2018 was “The Motivation Celebration” and several LexJet representatives were on hand to help motivate the attendees to celebrate. Bill Weiser, Dylan Borden, Kevin Drelich, Matthew Bailey and Vince Bejar – along with Canon’s Pete Wright – were at the conference to discuss the benefits of adding wide format printing to the services offered by the UPS Stores.
The LexJet booth was one of the highlights of the show, as everyone who stopped by was interested in learning more about wide format printing. “Many locations aren’t printing yet, but they are eager to learn,” Bejar said. “Every time a customer would come to the booth, they always said ‘we hear you’re the people we need to see [to learn about printing]’. We were glad to get them excited about new opportunities.”
The team had the chance to discuss products like LexJet TRIBUTE Satin Photo Paper 240g, LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric, LexJet Sunset Reserve Gloss Canvas as well as many other diverse products with the attendees. As each person stopped by the booth and chatted with the LexJet reps, they received a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000.
As the show came to a close, the energy around the LexJet booth became electric because it was time for the drawing. Out of over 400 raffle tickets, the lucky winner of the 44-inch printer was John Appel of The UPS Store – 1277 in Seattle, Wash.
With one extremely happy winner, open discussions about wide format printing and the introduction of unique products to the 1,800 attendees, the LexJet team was happy to play such an important part of the success of the conference and they are looking forward to the next one in 2020.
