DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver Recognized at International Conference

Coquitlam, Canada (PressExposure) December 17, 2008 -- DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver was recognized for merchandise purchased by its members in 2008—totaling more than $6.2 million—and new memberships in 2008. For new memberships, DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver earned the 600 level, the prize being a one-year lease of a Mercedes Benz. This marks the 10th consecutive year DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver has achieved the Mercedes honor.

“It’s great to attend DirectBuy’s international conference for a lot of reasons: new ideas, meeting other center owners and employees and just a whole lot of fun in usually a great location. To be recognized by Corporate for doing what we love to do at DirectBuy is just icing on the cake,” said Ruetz.

Held from November 22 to 25 at the San Francisco Marriott, DirectBuy’s conference, appropriately titled the Brilliance by the Bay, brought DirectBuy center owners from across the U.S. and Canada. Besides fun and festivities, the conference included an awards banquet, where DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver received these honors.
