2012 Eaton Distributor MeetingPartnering to Win is the theme for this year’s Eaton Distributor Meeting. All of us – Eaton, Distributors and our Customers – are working together to win in our challenging global markets. EDM is less than a month away and you’ve seen in previous invitations that our Global Markets focus will help distributors from around the world bring unique product and system solutions to your customers. We will also have a new product display area at this year’s trade show where product managers and engineers will be easy to find for those that want to get into the details of our product offering. Our interactive, market and solutions oriented displays and working sessions will educate, inform and inspire you to find new ways to apply Eaton products in your area as soon as you leave Orlando.
On Wednesday September 19th, from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm we will again be hosting separate meetings for the Asia Pacific, EMEA and South American Distributors. I’m personally planning to take part in the South American session and would like to invite you to register for this session if you are interested in the recent developments in our business there.
Distributor Principals have been invited by separate email to a dinner with Robert Stevenson who is an internationally recognized speaker and author and will speak on driving growth on Wednesday evening, September 19. We look forward to seeing you at this dinner. Principals: If you have not already done so, please confirm your attendance and that of one other senior manager from your organization. Dress code for this dinner is coat & tie.
All attendees are invited to participate in a pay-to-play golf outing on Thursday, September 20. We will be hosting the "scramble format" tournament at Shingle Creek Golf Course. Complete your tournament registration today so you don’t miss your chance to be a part of the fun, along with a chance to win great prizes!
Be sure to secure your guestroom reservation at the beautiful Peabody Hotel. Guestroom reservations must be made separate from your meeting registration. All room reservations must be made by Monday, August 27th. Room reservations received by this date will be confirmed at Eaton’s $159 group rate. After this date, reservations will be confirmed on a space-available basis at the prevailing rack rate.

I look forward to meeting you and spending an informative week with you next month at the EDM. As a team, let’s continue to work together to win.
