Westburne Brandon Trade Show

Westburne - Brandon Trade Show
Brandon Trade Show at Westburne

The 2016 Brandon Trade Show took place at the Brandon Victoria Inn on April 13 and 14. We had a fun evening VIP event on the 13th where a select few of our loyal customers had exclusive access to great prizes, a delicious dinner (including a POUTINE BAR), and had the chance to mingle with vendors and staff! On the 14th Westburne hosted a very well-attended trade show that was mainly aimed at our Colony accounts, but was open to our Contractor customers as well. Two seminars also took place during the show, including one by our very own Energy and Lighting Manager, Jake Reid. Fluke hosted an informative product session for the second seminar. In total we had just short of 250 customers show up to this event. Here are a few photos of staff, vendors and customers from the event!

A healthy competition

Westburne Quebec - Healthy challenge

Its official, every month, the Montreal head office launches a fitness competition. Everyone is invited to participate. Rules are simple – the team votes on the challenge and have one month to practice and prepare for it. At months end, they have the competition during the lunch hour with different employees applauding and encouraging.

Plank, wall sit, lunge challenge… name it, they’ll do it!

Plank challenge – Who’s next?

Westburne Quebec - Plank challenge

Following the success of the Global Corporate Challenge a group of 15 employees from the Quebec division have decided to launch the Plank Challenge; a competition that requires a great amount of consistency and motivation. On a daily basis, and for 30 days, all participants prepare by holding the plank position for an indicated time. On the very last day of the challenge at noon, they will compete against each other and name an ultimate plank master.
