An enchanting adventure began on Monday, November 30 as over 3,500 IBOs were welcomed to the beautiful Walt Disney World® Swan and Dolphin Resort. Arriving from hometowns throughout North America, the excitement level was high and the smiles were abundant. This year, many IBO parents earned the option of bringing their children to Achievers, making the biggest IBO event of the year even bigger - and brighter! A brilliant Christmas tree in the hotel lobby brought squeals of delight from the little ones; the luxurious pool and beach area impressed parents and children alike.
Once IBOs were registered, they were warmly greeted by the IBOAI. The gifts of an IBOAI journal, logo pen and mints received rave reviews. Ideal for note taking during meetings and presentations at Achievers and after.
On their first evening, the IBOs enjoyed a fabulous welcome celebration around the resort patios and pools. There was delicious food, great music, and amazing light shows - along with loads of laughter, smiles, hugs, and photo-taking.
A select group of IBOs were treated to a preview of the Fuel expo on Monday evening, yet the largest crowd visited on Tuesday. What a busy day! Achievers seemed to take advantage of the opportunity to visit many outstanding brand and product booths. They were eager to learn about and sample new products, pick up literature, interact with Amway™ employees, and chat with the IBOAI Board members and staff.
When IBOs stopped at the IBOAI Booth at the Fuel expo, they received the Year in Review brochure and discussed how the IBOAI functions and supports IBOs and their businesses. Every visitor was given a light-up IBOAI signature pin, in their choice of red, white or blue. Many chose to put the blinking pin on immediately and left the expo "beaming".
To add to the magic of this annual event, the IBOAI is giving away a stunning set of Tumi® luggage in a beautiful bronze. Every registered IBO at the event is automatically entered into the drawing. The winner will be announced later this week.
For their second evening of Achievers, IBOs and their families were off to Universal Studios for an exclusive after-hours excursion of the incredible amusement park.
