H-P Products Hosts Successful
Central Vac Dealer Meeting

H-P Products recently hosted its Successful Central Vac Dealer Meeting at the Eilan Hotel & Spa in San Antonio, Texas. Top dealers from the U.S. and Canada gathered to network and discuss the state of the central vacuum market and what opportunities lie ahead. The event was filled with idea sharing, valuable educational sessions, discussions about emerging central vacuum trends, and new products and programs H-P is currently developing.

H-P is a leader in quick-clean products for central vacuums and this was a major theme for the meeting. H-P dealers have a unique opportunity
to sell the fastest way to clean a home with a well-designed central vacuum system that includes products such as Vroom, Spot, and Hide-A-Hose. H-P also focused on emerging digital marketing trends, launching an app for H-P dealers that
allows easy access to many video assets.

The H-P team honored the remarkable sales accomplishments of top dealers with an award ceremony and dinner. The top four dealers were also recognized during the meeting with a special video presentation.

Sapphire Award Winners:
Gary's VACUFLO in Portland, Oregon
Coltrin Central Vacuum Systems in
Boise, ID

Platinum Award Winners:

In addition to the useful knowledge and industry perspective shared at the meeting, H-P also treated dealers to some fun. Many dealers participated in group off-site activities including a golf outing, bicycle mission tour, Alamo tour, and a private barge tour of the world-famous San Antonio Riverwalk.

The three-day event also included a trade show of H-P's meeting sponsors. This allowed dealers to meet firsthand with some of H-P's vendor partners including:
