VIP Tour of Amway – Day 5
Did we save the best for last?!
Whether for the first time or the 50th, cresting the hill on Fulton Street and seeing the expanse of Amway World Headquarters, can still bring the same reaction – WOW! The facilities stretch for more than a mile; buildings fill the valley and reach to the edge of the Grand River. It’s impressive!
Visiting Amway is an experience many Amway Independent Business Owners have had and it’s always special. Our VIP visitors’ time at Amway, was certainly that, with a behind-the-scenes tour of our manufacturing areas and “Q & A” time with our Research and Development scientists. They discussed business growth with their National Accounts Sales Team over lunch with Executive Vice President, Jim Payne, and even had the opportunity to say “hello” to none other than Doug DeVos and Steve Van Andel.
A trip to Grand Rapids for any IBO would not be complete without a tour of the many local landmarks made possible through the tremendous generosity of the DeVos and Van Andel families. Our local guide made sure our VIPs got all the history and background of the visions brought to life in the Van Andel Institute, DeVos Place, Van Andel Arena and the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.
A special dinner at the DeVos families’ Reserve restaurant capped a very full day and week and provided the perfect end note to the Inaugural VIP Tour of Amway!
Till next year…
