Master agency WTG hosted its 16th annual Agent Partner Holiday Event at the La Quinta Resort and Club in Palm Springs, Calif., Dec. 5-6. This year's event was extended to two days with agent partners qualifying for travel rewards based on a third quarter sales contest.
The festivities were supported by gold sponsors Broadvox, Cogent Communications, Level 3, MegaPath, Pacnet, Star2Star, Sprint, Telesphere, telx, Windstream and XO Communications; silver sponsors Technology Law Group and tw telecom; and bronze sponsors IntelePeer, Masergy, RapidScale, QTS and Time Warner Cable Business Class/NaviSite.
The event opened with a beautiful holiday-themed reception. Agent partners had the opportunity to join various providers for a dinner at some of Palm Springs' finest restaurants.
On day two, agents had a chance to hear from WTG's gold provider sponsors while earning raffle tickets to win great prizes later in the evening. Eighteen holes of golf at the famous PGA West Stadium Course or a relaxing massage at the Spa La Quinta followed a power-packed morning of learning. The reception with a demo/exhibit area was filled with conversation and laughter as Santa Claus himself made an appearance with American Acrobats' lady in a snow globe.
A sit-down, moonlit dinner was served while guests listened to the musical stylings of the "Big Band Swing Express." They were accompanied by the vocals of actor/singer Bill A. Jones from Fox's "Glee." During the evening, the Meraquas of Irvine executed stunning synchronized swim routines. More than 120 guests were in attendance throughout the event, learning about various new products, enjoying golf and massages, networking and socializing.
"This year's holiday event was something right out of a Frank Capra movie," said Vince Bradley, WTG CEO. "The setting truly reaffirmed for me what a 'Wonderful Life' we all have working in the channel that we have built in the spirit of teamwork. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing our agent community come together during the holidays to celebrate a successful year and usher in a new one. Here's to all of our successes to come in 2014 and beyond."
