Equipment Marketers Holds Successful One Day Sale and Service Seminar 

CHERRY HILL, New Jersey (November 15, 2010) — On November 12th, Equipment Marketers held their One Day Sale and Service Seminar with record attendance and a celebratory atmosphere marking 65 years in business! Attendees new and old were partaking in the food, prizes and the good deals available. Representatives from Maytag Commercial were on hand to explain how replacing old washers with new could actually be financed by the incredible utility savings and super cycle revenue generated from the new high-efficient equipment


Many of the attendees had signed up to attend the free Service Seminar held by Bobby Drummond, the Maytag Commercial Factory Service Manager, who was flown in to conduct it. Attendees learned how to fix basic issues and save money on service of their large and small washers and dryers. A separate seminar was also held to instruct people on using debit systems. The Red Carpet Service Center was packed and busy with attendees looking for free technical advice from Equipment Marketers service technicians who were available all day. The Service Center was a roped off area which had several machines and technicians who were happy to break down machines and answer any questions that either weren't addressed in the Service Seminar itself or from people who didn't attend the Seminar

During the Service Seminar breaks, a continental breakfast and buffet lunch and desserts were served. Reinforcing the energy theme, Equipment Marketers featured their Energy Showdown, in which a Maytag stack dryer was run all day against the competition. Live results were announced and projected overhead in the showroom to the couple hundred people in attendance. The results were compelling proof for attendees that Maytag machines save more energy than the competition and increase the bottom line for laundry owners.


Toward the end of the day, Equipment Marketers raffled off a high-efficiency washing machine to Chhunavuth Kao of New Wash & Dry in Philadelphia, PA! Other prizes were given out that day and many of the attendees went home with gifts and laundry accessories including Maytag rugs and clocks for their store or home! All in all, the day was a success with attendees feeling full of good food and having made connections with salespeople, company representatives and other laundry owners.
