Lebanon, Tenn. — Lochinvar recently hosted 16 of its top VIP Contractors and their guests for its annual four-day Nashville Experience. The visiting VIPs were treated to an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2018 CMA Fest, as well as a chance to check out Lochinvar’s world headquarters and meet with the Lochinvar business team.
Winners and their guests stayed at Nashville’s Hilton Garden Inn, a short walk from Nissan Stadium and the riverfront festival grounds. This year’s CMA lineup included country’s biggest stars such as Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and Charley Pride as well as acts appearing for the first time such as Kane Brown, Old Dominion and Carly Pearce. Several VIPs got photos of some of the performing artists.
During the group’s visit to Lochinvar’s headquarters in nearby Lebanon, they toured the manufacturing facility and sat down with Lochinvar leaders for round-table discussions where they learned about the company’s latest product releases and upcoming innovations while sharing their own experience, insight and feedback from the field.
“Meeting the VIP Contractors who install and work with our products every day gives us a chance to connect with them on a different, more personal level,” said Amanda McAfee, marketing representative. “After watching them interact with the VIP Contractor Program all year, it’s an honor to welcome them to our hometown and headquarters and hear their opinions, and then watch them enjoy their well-deserved reward.”
