During opening day of MEGA Group USA’s National Convention in Nashville, TN, Tempur-Pedic made a detour from their national tour to provide MEGA Group USA members an interactive and action-packed training experience on their beds.
The Tempur-Pedic Roadshow Experience first hit the road in March and has made stops at select retailers in top markets such as New York, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Phoenix among others. Because the road show is available on a limited basis, MEGA Group USA sponsored the event exclusively for their members to experience at their National Convention.
MEGA Group USA members received an afternoon of focused education on Tempur’s mattresses and pillows including consumer and product research behind the production, insight into the technology and manufacturing, and detailed information on Tempur’s marketing and retailer support program.
“We are thrilled to sponsor the Tempur-Pedic Road Show training for our members,” stated Jerry Honea, COO of MEGA Group USA. “Because most of our members would find it cost prohibitive to experience the Road Show, we decided to bring the show to them! It gave our members more knowledge and confidence in selling the Tempur product.”
David Wachendorfer, Vice President of Sales Development and Retail Training of Tempur-Pedic conducted the four hour training session that was designed to show retailers how they can achieve higher close rates, higher ticket sales, and enhanced customer experience with the Tempur-Pedic product.
“It was a great experience,” stated Brian Davis of The Bedroom Store in Maryland Heights, MO. “Even though we have carried Tempur for 10 years, it was very beneficial. The presentation on the Ergo System was extremely helpful and provided some key insights for us to take back and close sales.”
