The World of Concrete is a hectic time of year. There are meetings, dinners, parties, association functions – and a show to go to as well! This year, AH Harris decided to add to the mix by hosting our own hospitality event. The purpose, to say thank you – Thank you to our customers and vendor partners for 100 years of support and patronage. And it was a big hit!
The event took place at “Off the Strip”, a restaurant in the Linq Promenade, on Tuesday night during the World of Concrete. While you never know what the attendance will be like at an event such as this, considering there are several other similar events at the same time on the same evening, and with it being our first year hosting a hospitality gathering, we were unsure of what to expect – and a little nervous. You can plan all you want, order the food, invite the guests, send invitations, but you don’t know until the doors open, who will be there to support the show. After 250 registered guests, 40+ AH Harris and HarMac attendees and 1 very elegant champagne skirt girl – it’s safe to say the show was awesome! The energy that was in the room was electric. People laughed, joked, ate, drank, discussed families, business, politics, etc. Handshakes, hugs, kisses, and salutations were exchanged. Relationships in that room extended as far back as 50 years! WOW!
As I walked the show in the days following the event, I got the chance to speak with many of the people who attended our event. Over and over I heard the words Great time, Thank you so much for inviting us, We really enjoyed meeting the team, and Your associates are awesome! The last one is my favorite, because they are! Over the past 100 years we have had some of the finest and most talented individuals in the industry pass through our doors, and stay. They are leaders in the field, board members of industry associations, volunteers, engineers, specialists, and above all else – they are Harris Pride!
The event in Las Vegas may have kicked off the 100 Year Celebration, but it is far from over. We will be celebrating at our locations and in the regions all year long! Look for posts on our social media sites, in our stores, from our account managers and on our website. Come by and join us.
And finally, THANK YOU!
AH Harris – A Century Down , A Millennium To Go.
