The AMSA Annual Conference A Great Event for Movers

The AMSA Annual Conference A Great Event for Movers

As a mover or business owner, it is important to understand the moving business. To do this fully, you need to connect and build contacts within the sector while also ensuring you receive the most up to date information and advice.

Every year, one event is dedicated to this goal, the AMSA annual conference.  The event can give you the ability to help you develop as a business leader and to grow your business through contacts, suppliers, and potential customers.

Throughout the conference, there is the chance to learn about different practices that can help you and your business to grow and develop, including marketing, recruitment, legal requirements and even classes on using social media. All of these will benefit your company tremendously.

This year’s conference boasted having over 100 suppliers, who had different products and services all aimed at the core of moving businesses. The hope with all these products is making your life easier and saving money in the long-term.

It is not only important to discuss the perils of business but to also be inspired by others.  One important feature of the conference is the guest keynote speaker, who this year was Joby Ogwyn, an adventurer who is famous for high-altitude climbing and as a wind-suit explorer.

Some of the yearly competitions are also extremely popular including the ProMover Classic Golf Tournament, the Silent Auction, and AMPAC Pinewood Derby.

An evening of awards for moving businesses and individuals in the moving industry is held during the conference at the Evening of the Stars Dinner.  This encourages good work and outstanding achievement in the industry

AMSA had its 96th annual conference this past year, which in itself shows the continued growth and education that AMSA has given to the moving business across America for nearly 100 years is still strong and relevant.

This year’s ticket price was just $825 for AMSA members and $1650 for non-members, a fantastic deal for such a fantastic event, and one not to be missed next year.
