In winning the Best Trade Show or Convention Stevie, Vemma beat out five other finalist companies across diverse industry categories.
The central goal of Vemma's 2011 annual convention was to motivate, train and elevate Brand Partner success with incredible speakers, new products and tools, and elaborate recognition. The Power of Why Convention, held February 10-13 at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, achieved all this and more, resulting in a 30% increase in enrollments and record-breaking post-convention sales.
"Vemma is honored to accept the American Business Award for Best Trade Show or Convention for our Power of Why Convention. I am proud of the Home Office team for executing an outstanding event and Vemma Brand Partners worldwide for helping us make this the best event in our short history," Vemma Founder and CEO BK Boreyko remarked.
