Diamond Leadership Conference 2017

Late last month, we held our 2017 Diamond Leadership Conference in Tucson, Arizona. Our theme for this year’s conference focused on three key words: vision, dedication and success. On our first day, we shared this video with the attendees, highlighting the first word of our theme: vision. Here at Mitsubishi Electric, we strive every day to become a leader in the HVAC industry, and through our efforts to do so we’ve had the opportunity to build long-lasting relationships with our distributors and rep firms. Without them, we couldn’t achieve our vision, and most importantly, we wouldn’t be able to provide our customers with comfort.

We want to thank our distributors and rep firms for their loyalty and commitment to Mitsubishi Electric and our products! We’re excited to see where the next year takes us. If you’d like to watch the videos from days two and three of the conference, click here: dedication and success.

March 26_Annual Distributor Conference Image 2This month, we hosted our 2015 Distributor Conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. We celebrated hard work and our distributors’ continued success at the event, held March 9–12. More than 500 people were in attendance, including distributors, employees and their families.

The conference wasn’t all business, though. We managed to squeeze in some quality time on the golf course as well as hold a family-friendly race car competition at the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway. On the last night of the conference, we concluded with a celebratory performance by hit 70s band Three Dog Night.

Distributor Conference 2015: A Look into our Future

March 13Earlier this week, we dined on the stage of Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® after many brave members of our Mitsubishi Electric family volunteered to act out different scenes. We look forward to gathering with our distributors annually for the opportunity to bond and discuss growth opportunities and new initiatives.

This week, Mark Kuntz, Senior Vice President, discussed exciting new products and projects in the works to look out for this year.

As the economy is on a steady upward trend, we invited our veteran Distributor Conference speaker and economist Jeff Dietrich, PhD, Senior Analyst of ITR Economics, to speak on the current state of the economy and what it means for us and our like-family distributors. Good news for the industry: the improving economy has led to an increase in both residential sales and new construction. Jeff foresees the upward trend to continue to rise over the next few years leading sales in our industry to thrive.

A Great Start to our 2015 Distributor Conference

March11Our 2015 Distributor Conference has been full of exciting and productive discussions on our future in the industry. Over 200 distributors have joined us at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort from March 9-12 as we salute our success over the past year. This year’s theme is “Catch a Rising Diamond.” We are grateful to have so much support and shining “diamonds” in our Mitsubishi Electric family.

Yesterday, we were heavily entertained by speaker Guy Kawasaki, chief evangelist of Canva and former advisor to the Motorola business unit of Google and chief evangelist of Apple. He shared his top 11 unique tips on the “art of innovation:”
March11 2

  1. Make meaning
  2. Make mantra
  3. Jump to the next curve
  4. Roll the dice
  5. Don’t worry—be crappy
  6. Let 100 flowers blossom
  7. Polarize people
  8. Churn baby—churn
  9. Niche thyself
  10. Perfect your pitch
  11. Don’t let the bozos grind you down!

While we found all of Guy’s tips to be memorable, useful and applicable, number 2— make mantra— was especially meaningful. Guy described this tip as more than just a mission statement, but a real (and short) representation of a company mission and meaning.

Our new mantra— “make comfort personal”­—describes our way of thinking across both our residential and commercial segments. Environmentally friendly, user-friendly, sustainable, cost-effective – whatever feature is important to our customers is important to us. Our HVAC systems are designed to meet the needs of each and every individual. We take pride in providing personalized comfort without compromise.

Toasting to Success at the 2014 Distributor Conference



We’ve wrapped up this year’s Distributor Conference, where more than 300 of our distributors, manufacturer’s representatives, employees and spouses joined us in Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii, as we saluted to the success of 2013 and the promising outlook for 2014.

Held this year from March 7-10 at the Ritz-Carlton, the annual event was packed with important updates from the division’s representatives, who brought attendees up to speed on exciting, new companywide initiatives. The highlights of the three-day event, however, were the inspirational and electrifying stories told by our guest speakers. Steve Chealander, a former Lieutenant Colonel in U.S. Air Force and Military Aide to President Ronald Reagan, delivered the keynote speech to kickoff the event and a speech from Salvatore Augustine Giuna, a former U.S. Army soldier and the first living person to receive the eminent Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War, concluded the conference.

We look forward to this event every year, not just for the stunning views and beautiful weather, but because it’s our opportunity to honor the hard work of our esteemed network of distributors – the movers of our products – who, without them, we wouldn’t be the industry leaders that we are.

To find out which distributors were awarded for their extraordinary performance in 2013 and to learn more about the happenings at this year’s event, click here to read the press release.
