This Year’s Meeting Took Place on September 19 – 22 in Phoenix, Arizona

Utility’s 2012 International Sales Meeting took place at the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix, AZ. Over 300 dealers, vendors, and Utility staff attended the four-day meeting consisting of general and product sessions, a trailer display, and a vendor fair that included 43 vendors.


Guests also had an opportunity to relax with golf and other outdoor activities. The annual Round Table Awards and Goal Achiever

Awards were given to this year’s top dealers during a luncheon and presentation that honored upcoming Utility retiree, Chuck Cole. Later that evening, guests all enjoyed a Chuckwagon-style BBQ dinner at Rustler’s Rooste Restaurant.


Dealers participated in the “Tales of Success” trivia game for a chance to win a Smart TV. Peter Cook from Valley Equipment Ltd., Hartland NB Canada was the lucky winner to take home the coveted prize.

The meeting’s theme of “Tales of Success”, mixed with a western flare, focused on how Utility’s 98 years of success results  from an effective partnership with its dealers and suppliers. Attendees gained knowledge of new technology available and achieved greater insight on the challenges within the industry. The vendor fair provided networking opportunities with various suppliers to learn about new product offerings, while several trailers were displayed at the Trailer Exhibition to showcase Utility’s latest technology and new applications. Overall, the meeting proved to be one of the most successful and productive meetings.

“On behalf of Utility Trailer Manufacturing, we would like to thank all of our dealers and vendors who attended this year’s International Sales Meeting,” said Craig Bennett, Utility’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
