World Market Center Las Vegas awards $5,000 to sales representative as part of newly expanded Rep Rewards Program
LAS VEGAS - Feb. 24, 2011 – World Market Center Las Vegas has recognized an independent sales representative with a $5,000 Grand Prize as part of the Winter Las Vegas Market 2011’s Rep Rewards Program.
Carrie Barker of Carrie Barker Sales in Utah was randomly selected from almost 100 representatives who participated in the new Rep Rewards Program, enhanced from its previous format for the Winter Las Vegas Market 2011. “I’m almost speechless,” said Barker. “To receive this prize is so amazing, I can’t believe it.”
The newly expanded program, designed to fuel a partnership with the thousands of sales representatives who actively promote Las Vegas Market, recognizes the important relationship between sales representatives and their customers and gives manufacturers and independent sales representatives added value and incentive to bring their buyers to Las Vegas Market.
“Rep Rewards is a fun, far-reaching, rewards program where everyone wins,” said Robert Maricich, president and CEO of World Market Center Las Vegas. “Our industry reps are the ambassadors for our Market. They work hard and the Rep Rewards program is our way of thanking them for doing so.”
Barker won the Grand Prize by referring seven retailers to Winter Market Las Vegas 2011.
When the Rep Rewards Program first launched in 2009, the program assigned representatives points for each buyer they referred, which could be exchanged for hotel room nights. Based on feedback from the representatives and a desire to simplify the program, World Market Center Las Vegas began awarding representatives with cash rewards with the Winter Las Vegas Market 2011, making it even more compelling for representatives to get involved.
“I’ve always felt that the Las Vegas Market is a step above any other Market in taking care of the buyers, reps and manufacturers,” said Barker. “No other market has a program like this. It really benefits the Market, the manufacturers, the reps and the buyers, all of us working together to make it work. It’s really a great idea.”
To participate in this program for an upcoming Las Vegas Market, representatives can download the referral form and submit up to 25 retailer names per representative. Rewards are limited and available while supplies last. For complete information about the Rep Rewards program, visit www.LasVegasMarket.com.
