How A Fortune 200 Company Uses NHS Global Events
If a company is robust enough to be listed No. 198 on the Fortune 500, it’s a good bet you’ve heard of them. But the company filling that position admits it is somewhat stealth in its profile.
Meet SYNNEX Corporation.
SYNNEX calls itself “an industry leader in IT distribution and customer care outsourced services” that helps “our customers and business partners grow and enhance their customer-engagement strategies.”
As Senior Vice President, Marketing, North America Bob Stegner puts it, “If your business needs computers, we can work with you.” This includes having call centers around the globe and – with the acquisition of Westcon-Comstor – having added capabilities in North America and a new presence in Latin America. Worldwide, SYNNEX employs over 100,000 people. Stealth indeed!
You can imagine with that kind of workforce, the company schedules a few events in the course of a year. According to Stegner, that’s around 450! He had worked with Jennifer Herring when she was the Director of Sales at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas before she became Vice President of Business Development at NHS Global Events in 2012, as he does now.
“NHS Global Events started with the large events and then began to help us with the smaller ones too,” Stegner says. “They’re able to help me secure properties that are best for us. As a distributor, that’s not necessarily our strength.”
For SYNNEX’s annual Inspire Conference, Stegner appreciates that NHS Global Events “sends a team of people to help with housing management, which takes a lot of stress off our event team. If the room isn’t right or there’s a problem with booking, they take care of it.”
Stegner’s advice to other companies, “No matter what you use NHS Global Events for now, sit down with your NHS representative and learn about the other services they offer.”
NHS Global Events is ready to have that conversation with you.
