Olympic Hot Tub receives two honors at Hot Spring’s International Dealer Conference
February 6, 2018 – It’s hard to believe we’ve already entered the second month of 2018, isn’t it? For us at Olympic, 2017 was a very exciting year full of some much-needed change and improvement while staying focused on getting lots of new customers initiated into the Wellness Generation with the purchase of a new Hot Spring Spa or Finnleo Sauna. It was a banner year!
Last month the Olympic leadership attended the International Dealer Conference for Hot Spring Spa dealers in San Diego. It’s always a terrific way to start out a new year. We get an opportunity to spend time with other Hot Spring dealers, share ideas, learn about new products being introduced by Hot Spring… It provides inspiration and motivation for us to focus on what lies ahead.
It was a special treat for Olympic to receive two awards at this year’s conference. They meant a lot to me personally, as 2017 was my first full year as owner of Olympic. While our company has won dozens of awards over its 40-year history, the impact of these two awards were not lost on me!
We were recognized as the Territory Dealer of the Year for our region for the ninth time. This is always meaningful, as it’s given to the dealer they feel is working on all cylinders: sales, training, customer service, marketing and innovation. It’s more or less the “All Star Award”, and it was a thrill to get the public applause for a great year.
The second award was especially meaningful to me. The Watkins Wellness Award was introduced last year. It’s given to one Hot Spring dealer (worldwide!) who is doing the best job promoting health & wellness through hot water. It was so gratifying to have Hot Spring recognize our continuing efforts to advocate healthy living—to our customers as well as our employees.
We thank Hot Spring for the recognition! And—did you know…? This will be our 36th year as the exclusive dealer of Hot Spring Spas in our market.
And now…2018! We’re excited to bring Hot Spring & Finnleo Saunas to more folks in the Pacific Northwest. Our goal is to say, “Welcome to the Wellness Generation” to everyone! Perhaps it’s time for you to join us too?
