High Octane Launch

Team Portfolio was on hand yesterday for Nebraska Furniture Mart's "Ignite 2008" event at the Kansas Speedway. This annual event is a day of information and fun for clients of NFM's Contractor Sales Division. Attendees learned about all of the fantastic appliance lines available at Nebraska Furniture Mart from NFM staff and factory representatives on hand from all the major appliance manufacturers. Participants also had an opportunity to take a ride around the track in an actual Sprint Cup NASCAR race car. Very cool!

The highlight of the day, however, was the official announcement of the new alliance between Nebraska Furniture Mart and Portfolio Kitchen & Home (see the post from yesterday, October 24th for details). Team Portfolio was introduced to the Ignite participants and our own Geri Higgins gave a presentation on how this new NFM/PKH collaboration will bring added value to the builder, developer, and contractor clients of Nebraska Furniture Mart. After the presentation attendees had the opportunity to meet and interact with the Portfolio staff and learn more about Portfolio products and services.
It was an exciting day and a great way to kick off our new relationship with NFM.
