BirchStreet Best Practices: The 2013 AAHOA Annual Convention and Trade Show

Bill Hirsch BirchStreet SystemsThe 2013 AAHOA Annual Convention and Trade Show is almost upon us – from March 26-29, we will be at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, showing off our AAHOA eMarket solution.

We have made many improvements and updates to the eMarket since this time last year. With a mission to bring members and suppliers together for fast, easy shopping, our AAHOA Marketplace director, Jason Strunka, has been hard at work growing and improving the eMarket.  The site has a new interface and is easier to navigate and faster than ever before. The site now has over 100,000 items available at pre-negotiated, reduced prices. We have also added more suppliers – increasing choices and lowering prices. Users can now set up “favorite products folders,” enabling simple re-ordering of frequently purchased products. Also new since last year are our weekly “Hot Deals,” which feature discounts on specially-selected hospitality supplies.

We are extremely pleased to note that our efforts are being noticed – in the past year, we have more than doubled our number of members. Jason and the team will continue to build the eMarket into the premier one-stop shopping destination for AAHOA members by consistently adding new products and suppliers to the lineup – and improving the overall experience.

At this year’s AAHOA National Convention, BirchStreet will be raffling off a Caribbean Cruise (airfare included) and a flat screen television. Please join us – members are encouraged to enroll to learn more and be entered in the drawings at the show.
