Concord Marketing Solutions hosts Second Annual PromoB2B Global Partners Meeting

January 18, 2013 – Concord Marketing Solutions, Inc. hosted the second annual meeting of worldwide partners in the PromoB2B Global alliance. Held in Las Vegas in conjunction with the annual Promotional Products Association International’s (PPAI) tradeshow, Concord hosted representatives from Arcadia Corporate Merchandise, Ltd. in the U.K. and Spain, and Execugifts in Australia and New Zealand.

A new marketing plan for 2013 was presented by C.J. Ritterbusch, COO of Concord, and Steve Barnes, Director of Arcadia, and approved by the members. The plan calls for a new marketing brochure, an updated web site, investments in SEO, and an improved Group Buy technology. The groups also unveiled a new logo tagline: “One Brand. One World. One Store.”

The group agreed to meet next in April in Hong Kong to improve the sourcing capabilities for all partner firms in order to provide quality products and lower prices for clients. Kirk Graves, Concord CEO, commented that “we are extremely excited about the progress made by our global partnerships over the past 2 years and look for 2013 to be a breakout year for the group. The world seems to get smaller every day and our large corporate clients expect us to help them globally. Within 30 days, we will have 4 multi-national on-line store programs live, with distribution points in the U.S., U.K., Australia, South Africa and Hong Kong.”

Steve Barnes added that “our meetings in Las Vegas were extremely productive and we are looking forward to an aggressive marketing campaign and much success in 2013 for all PromoB2B Global partner firms.”
