ABM Franchising Group hosts three premiere events a year for its Linc Service and TEGG franchise networks: Continuing Education Conference & Vendor Showcase, Principals Meeting and All-Star Diamond Event. We organize these private events to provide the leaders and decision makers of our franchise networks with the opportunity to collaborate through networking events, attend educational and motivational sessions, share best practices, and celebrate the successes of the previous year.
The annual Continuing Education Conference & Vendor Showcase brings together employees of our Linc Service and TEGG franchises from across the country and across the globe. During this three day event, attendees participate in targeted educational sessions, visit with industry-leading service and supply vendors at our Vendor Showcase, and are recognized for their achievements during the annual President's Awards Presentation. More than 1,300 members of our franchise networks attended the 2020 event and explored Vendor Showcase, which hosted exhibit booths for 100+ sponsors.
Franchise owners are exclusively invited to attend the annual Principals Meeting. In addition to attending educational and motivational sessions, franchise owners have an opportunity to socialize with other contractors in the network during optional activities such as the annual golf scramble and dinner receptions. The event concludes with an Awards Banquet, which honors many of the contractors for their dedication and success.
The All-Star Diamond Event is held each year to honor the top sales performers and employee-of-the-year winners from the previous year. Our top sales performers are referred to as Diamond Award Winners, as the Diamond Award is the most esteemed individual sales honor given to select individuals who showcase exemplary talents through their professionalism and noted sales successes. The event features optional outings and activities, dinner receptions, and an Awards Banquet.
