The event buzzed with energy as both regulars and newcomers came together for four days of inspiration and collaboration.


In his welcoming speech, Chris West, President and CEO of Mega Group, stressed his team’s unwavering commitment to continuous improvement. The convention featured several notable events, including exclusive Member Huddles with the Executive Leadership Team and an inspiring keynote delivered by three-time Olympic gold medalist Jennifer Botterill.

Furthermore, the convention’s star-studded Hollywood Gala witnessed the recognition of long-time member Richard Kullberg as the second inductee into the prestigious Mega Hall of Fame. Exclusive educational sessions were provided by platinum sponsors Whirlpool, Ashley Furniture, Tempur-Pedic, and A.M.D. Phoenix throughout the event. Members also had the opportunity to gain valuable insights into succession planning, and receive tips on data-driven success strategies from their peers.

During the much-anticipated Stampede, attendees were granted exclusive access to the best deals of the year. Vendors came equally prepared, efficiently processing the hectic movement of products and rebates. At a distinctive venue in Montréal, the Time Out Market, an exclusive gala dinner was hosted, raising $12,025 for Ronald McDonald’s House Charities to support families in need.


John White and Dave Meekings from AVB Marketing outlined the exciting prospects that members can anticipate as they dive deep into their partnership with Mega Group. They identified the inner workings of what they deliver best for their stores, but also highlighted how AVB is committed to working with all its members. AVB, like Mega Group, look forward to continuing this successful partnership while delivering optimal outcomes for all stakeholders.

All in all, MOMENTUM was a remarkable event filled with valuable interactions, industry insights, successful strategies, and important knowledge. We would like to thank our sponsors for their immense support, and look forward to the next convention in Vancouver in the summer of 2024.
