Business and Networking Make Buy & Sell 2010 a First-Class Event

Bestbuy Distributors Limited’s annual Buy & Sell event attracted shareholders from Vancouver to Newfoundland for a memorable conference in Banff, Alta.

The event, which combined supplier meetings with several social events, attracted the majority of the buying group’s shareholders as well as a wide variety of suppliers to the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

Two days of meetings with suppliers were highlighted with events such as an evening on top of Sulphur Mountain accessible only by the Banff Gondola. Shareholders and suppliers enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the summit, with a bird’s-eye view of six mountain ranges.

“It was a great experience for our shareholders and vendors to have dinner together above the clouds,” stated Jeff VandeSande, Bestbuy’s president.

Of course, no aftermarket corporate event would be complete without golf, and the venue for Bestbuy’s for Sick Kids Golf Tournament was the world-famous Stanley Thompson-designed Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course. Golfers played in the stunning mountain setting to raise money for the world-renowned Hospital for Sick Children (Sick Kids) in Toronto, Ont.

To-date, Bestbuy shareholders and valued suppliers have raised more than $600,000 for the leading children’s medical facility. This year’s proceeds from the golf tournament and raffles will be pooled and a cheque presented to the Hospital for Sick Children at Bestbuy’s 2011 AGM next February.
