PRSM Coast2Coast Local Connect 2018 Attracts Nearly 250 Attendees

PRSM Coast2Coast Local Connect 2018, held November 8, provided almost 250 PRSM members across North America the opportunity to meet — on the same day — in a dozen different cities ranging from Toronto, Canada, to Irvine, California.  

The event kicked off in New York City where the largest crowd of almost 60 PRSM members gathered at District Social. It wrapped up with members meeting in Irvine, San Francisco and Seattle.

PRSM retailers and suppliers packed the annual networking events to share ideas, develop new relationships and support their local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. PRSM members donated $11,290 total.

Those attending the events praised the opportunity to connect or reconnect with other PRSM members and discuss numerous issues impacting them and the retail facilities industry. 

PRSM Coast2Coast — Local Connect is the single largest networking event PRSM conducts each year. “PRSM members have requested we develop more localized events that enable them to meet with other retailers and suppliers in their area,” explained PRSM CEO, Bill Yanek. “PRSM Local Connect is just one of the venues we provide to help members connect locally. We also have our Retailer2Retailer meetings and we are in the process of developing more local events for 2019 that will build upon the success of PRSM Local Connect.”
