Crocs on show at Intersport get-together

Intersport members gathered in Darwin for their annual meeting and mid-winter get-together, enjoying the warmth and sunshine.

Chief executive Kevin O'Hanlon and his head office team, major brand partners and members enjoyed a range of activities, along with the AGM, brand presentations, member workshops and keynote speaker - Intersport International Corporation's Chief Retail Officer and IIC board member Martin Kempkes who spoke on the future of sports retail and Intersport's global direction.

Presentations from commercial manager Sven Karlsson, retail product manager Guy Cooper and marketing co-ordinator Heather Wilson gave members plenty to think about.

Social activites included attending the Melbourne Demons vs Adelaide Crows match at TIO Stadium, plus a golf day on Sunday with winners Graham Joyce from Asics and Renato Cheli from Intersport Casino (pictured with inflatable crocodile).

Reports Group Operations Co-ordinator Nick Serafini, "Sunday evening we attended the brilliant Mindil Beach Sunset Markets. We had a private area right on the beach to watch the stunning sunset, possibly the best in Australia!

Adding their presentations to the general mix were Adidas, Asics, New Balance, Nike and Puma teams, with Champion a late scratching.

Highlight of the four-day gathering was the visit to impressive flagship store Intersport Casuarina by all members and brand partners.

Says Serafini, "It proved a great exercise with countless benefits and ideas for our members to take away and implement in their own stores, along with ideas and initiatives from the Tuesday workshops.
