Windy City Hosts BuyCell Wireless Group

It’s always fun to be amongst our customers, some of whom are the largest wireless retailers in the country, and it is even more fun when that gathering is hosted by our good friends at BuyCell Wireless Group. Under the leaderhip of Ted Benoit, BuyCell Group has grown to be the largest and most influential wireless buying organization in the U.S.

This year’s annual meeting was held at the O’Hare Marriott in Chicago, and I (iQwaldo) was there representing iQmetrix and reinforcing the support it has for the group. It so happens that the majority of BuyCell members are iQ customers, so anytime we can get a bunch of our customers in one room, it’s simply a must that we attend.

Set up for the vendor portion of the show begins.

Naturally, the event was focused on the BuyCell Wireless Group members and how to leverage their strengths as an organization. Representing some of the largest Verizon indirect agents in the U.S., they come prepared with some hefty ammunition.

Day 2 of the event included a night out at the ball game -- we didn’t have peanuts or Cracker Jack, and no, the Cubbies didn’t pull out a victory, in spite of our efforts to root, root, root for the home team.”

It was a night to remember, as we were treated to rooftop seating across from Wrigley Field, which included all you could eat or drink. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone visiting Chicago and looking for a fun event. Just hope the Cubs come prepared to play. :)
