Sweeper Summit Adds Equipment Expo

Sweeper Summit

The Sweeper Summit, known since its inception in 2012 as an executive workshop for 1-800-SWEEPER partners, manufacturers and invited guests, is evolving into an all-inclusive event for the power sweeping industry, according to Carolyn Bell, marketing and communications director for the Sweeper Summit.

“The last-minute introduction of an equipment exposition at last year’s Summit proved to add a dimension to the conference that was extremely successful and highly valued by all who attended,” Bell said. 

This year's Sweeper Summit will be held November 7-9 at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, NV.

To continue its growth and development, Sweeper Summit has formed a Sweeper Summit Advisory Board. Mark Carter, owner of Peloton Sweeping and long-standing NAPSA Board member, is advisory board chairman. Other board members include Amy Schwandt, publisher of Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction and former manager of National Pavement Expo; Roger Bostdorff, president of B2B Sales Boost, former NPE speaker and Sweeper Summit moderator; Derek Rayburn, owner and creative director for Scenic City Studios; and Sara Bowen, owner of Cobalt Consulting Marketing Group.

"The Sweeper Summit Advisory Board will make a great event even better," said Mike Lucht, president of 1-800-SWEEPER. "Our goal is to transform the Sweeper Summit into a must-see event exclusively focused on the power sweeping industry.”

In other 1-800-SWEEPER news, Ben Steyer has been named executive director. Steyer will focus on creating a strategic growth path to increase the servicing footprint of the 1-800-SWEEPER organization, market share for the partner companies and vendors while advancing the sweeping industry in general.

"I was immediately impressed with Ben’s passion for business growth and his ability to establish measurable goals that boost efficiencies," Lucht said. "Ben’s experience and success gives me great confidence in his ability to lead our group and serve as a resource to the partners and our customers well.”
