This year Detroit proudly hosted the Second Annual Sweeper Summit on November 11th through the 13th. The Sweeper Summit is an annual event for the 1-800-SWEEPER National Service Alliance. The Sweeper Summit serves as a think-tank for partners to benchmark, innovate, network and advance their businesses. The 1-800-SWEEPER Service Alliance President, Mike Lucht, hosted an address about the rapid positive growth and sales success the Alliance is experiencing. There was a benchmarking workshop, a selection of respected guest speakers and problem solving solutions for the Power Sweeping Industry such as a workshop on employee sleep deprivation. Most notable of the guest speakers was Cameron Herold, who is one of the most respected CEO Coaches in the world.

Many of the attendees traveled a great distance to attend: Cannon Pacific Services from San Marcos, California; Superior Property Maintenance of Tamarac, Florida; Cantel Sweeping from Gresham, Oregon and Immaculate Power Sweeping of Pelham, New Hampshire.
