Dear Franchise Partners,
We are trying to get an idea of how many attendees we will have at convention 2019. The annual event is scheduled for Thursday March 7th thru Saturday March 9th, 2019. This will be a three-day convention with a Owners Only meeting beginning on Thursday afternoon. Meetings and demonstrations for all other technicians will begin Friday morning throughout Saturday. We have not confirmed the location but it most likely will be at the Marriott Hotel (Kansas City Airport). Please wait for further notice before contacting the Marriott to make reservations.
As you are aware, there’s a lot of planning, tons of work, lots of money, and thousands of hours put in by staff members to bring the Dr. Vinyl/The Doctors Touch convention to life. Of course, there wouldn’t be a convention without you, our franchise owners and associates. As promised at last year’s convention, we want to bring you the best convention ever in 2019. Last year we planned the event without vendors & without demonstrations, just everyone in the same room for a one-day discussion. That went very well but this upcoming year we want to pull out all the bells and whistles to make this convention everything you’ve ever wanted it to be and more.
To do this, we need your commitment to attend as soon as possible. I’m willing to do what I can to help offset the expense. Like last year, for ALL associates (local associates included) spending a minimum of three nights at the hotel during convention (Thursday, Friday & Saturday night), I will pay for one-night hotel expense. I will credit the one-night hotel cost to your parts account. This only applies to owners, contractors and employees.
To be quite honest, the attendance levels over the last few years does not justify putting on this massive event. Unfortunately, if we as a franchise system are unable to have at least 200 attendees at the upcoming convention (including spouse and children whom are more than welcome), I will be forced to cancel the event. I need to know your response by December 1, 2018. Please do your best to make every effort to attend this year. We really would like to see each one of you in March!
