Both operator members and associate supplier partners alike will benefit from the content offered at TRSA’s Virtual Marketing & Sales Summit, scheduled for Nov. 17-18 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. EST both days.

How have customers changed as a result of the pandemic and how will this affect plans moving into 2021? How do marketing and sales professionals need to change to meet expectations in the toughest business environment in modern history? Tune in for keynote David Avrin’s message and embrace his concepts for customer service as a meaningful marketing tool.

Avrin’s high-energy and entertaining keynote will show how a customer’s experience really is a new competitive advantage. Forbes recently named his latest book, Why Customers Leave (and How to Win Them Back) as one of the “7 Business Books Entrepreneurs Need to Read” and one of the “Top-Ten Business Books of the Year (2019).” Attendees will have opportunities to win a copy of this book during the various interactive spots throughout the two-day summit.
