Mickey Makes Stop on AmeriGas ‘Road-Trip’
Over 1,200 AmeriGas location managers and corporate executives met with 25 invitation-only vendors to review forward-looking strategies and products at the company’s “Road Trip Conference & Trade Show” in August at the Omni Hotel in Dallas.
“One feature that stood out significantly was our new pull-out step that engages a security pin when the door closes,” says Tom. “The Location Managers really appreciate that we were able to reduce the overall step height by 8 to 9 inches, which allows the product to be lower to the ground since the in-bay step was removed. In general we heard many positive comments about the overall Mickey/AmeriGas relationship and our willingness to listen to their needs.”
The “Road Trip” also provided a forum for AmeriGas Field Managers and executives to discuss future innovations with their vendors. “They came to our booth with some excellent ideas on how we can make their drivers even more productive,” says Tom.
Jay Massey, Corporate Fleet Vehicle Manager for AmeriGas Propane, spent considerable time in the Mickey booth working with Tom and Gary to discuss new ideas with the Location Managers.
