If you are developing or expanding your US sales channel, AHTD becomes the manufacturer’s one stop shopping place. We have expanded and continuously improved our distribution channel through the networking and idea exchanging opportunities.

"Information and ideas taken from speakers and colleagues at AHTD meetings have made a significant contribution to our bottom line. I credit informed predictions by Alan Beaulieu in 2008 about what to expect and prepare for in 2009 for the ‘heads up’ we needed to realize outstanding financial results in spite of the worst economic conditions in our company’s history. The personal friends and business relationships that have resulted from active participation are a priceless bonus. AHTD has been one of the most positive experiences of my professional life."
