When my supplier made the choice to have our annual supplier picnic in Tampa, FL, I was pretty upset about it.
After all, Tampa, FL, is not exactly a tourist destination.
I truly didn’t believe every one of us would have much fun in Tampa, plus I wasn’t the least bit gleeful about our picnic. The supplier paid for rooms for all of the employees plus their families. Every one of us were put up in a really nice downtown Tampa hotel. The view was absolutely wonderful, plus my partner and I had a balcony overlooking Tampa Bay. In fact, the views inside the evening were truly some of the best I have seen in my entire life. My children particularly enjoyed swimming in the pool, which was right outside our room… During the morning, the supplier paid for several exciting family activities. Every one of us enjoyed an airboat ride through Tampa Bay on Wednesday morning, plus every one of us also had a charming multiple-course dinner on a luxury yacht on Wednesday evening. The supplier also paid for us to dive with dolphins. On Thursday, the supplier paid for all of the employees to go to the Tampa Aquarium. I thought that Tampa would be a really bad destination for our supplier picnic, although I was completely mistaken. The supplier obviously thought out the trip, before choosing Tampa as our destination. The attentive thought, planning, plus complete attention to detail, shows that this supplier cares about their staff members. I’m proud to be a part of a dealer that genuinely cares. I don’t even know what could top this year’s activities, although I cannot wait to see what they decide to do next year.
