PrimeTime, as is always the case, was a very productive and positive event for attendees gathered in Orlando this past August 13-16. The education, networking and savings have already been talked about at length. But what we haven’t spent much time focusing on are the hundreds of Members who walked out of the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center as winners.
Of course, we’d consider everyone at PrimeTime to be a winner. But the specific winners we’re talking about here are the 425 different Members who went home with more than they came to PrimeTime with.
Giveaways and drawings are always a highlight of the PrimeTime experience, and our time in Orlando was no different. Nationwide Marketing Group’s Vendor Partners came together to provide an exceptional giveaway program in Orlando. The 425 giveaway winners took home a share of more than $175,000 in prizes — an average value of $412 per winner. Further proof that PrimeTime is a can’t-miss event, the chances of leaving with a prize were extremely favorable: 1-in-6 Members won a giveaway or drawing during the show.
But that’s just the tip of the giveaway iceberg. Here are just a few of the big giveaway highlights from the show:
- Jeffery Douglas, from Mr. Mattress Superstore in Andalusia, Alabama, was the winner of the Serta Simmons Bedding “Trip of a Lifetime,” a prize valued at $10,000
- GE Appliances handed out 11 Opal Ice Makers, valued at $679 a piece
- Whirlpool gifted the 2022 Polaris Sportsman 570 ATV to Luis De La Fuente of De Bastos Enterprises, a prize valued at $8,000
- Two full kitchen packages were handed out at the show from GE Profile (won by Kristen Johnson of Island Appliance) and LG Appliances (won by Jeff Doherty of Cullen’s Home Center), each valued at more than $8,000
