SPRINGFIELD, MO. — GuildMaster kicked off "The GuildMaster Amazing Race" contest in which two grand prize winners, a retailer and a sales representative, will each win a trip around the world.
Starting this week, retailers will earn one contest entry for each $1,000 in GuildMaster product purchased, and sales reps will earn one contest entry for each $1,000 in GuildMaster product sold. The contest ends on Friday, Nov. 19, 2011 when five finalists in each group will be pulled from the entries -- the more entries, the greater the chance for selection.
On Black Friday, Nov. 25, one winner in each group will be drawn from the five finalists and GuildMaster CEO Steve Crowder will personally deliver the news to the winning retailer and sales representative.
Each of the winners may choose to receive either two tickets for a dream trip around the world or $10,000. The trip includes stops in nine of the Top 25 Global Fashion Capitals which, according to the Global Language Monitor, are: London, New York, Paris, Milano, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Singapore, Tokyo, Berlin, Sydney, Madrid, Rome, Shanghai, Monaco, Las Vegas, Melbourne, Moscow, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Bali, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Mumbai and Sao Paulo.
"A trip around the world is on the bucket list for many people and we want to know which of the top fashion capitals should be on the itinerary and why," Crowder said. "With the current state of the economy, it's time to step out and celebrate success with something that is both fun and adventuresome."
GuildMaster's Facebook fans are invited to help select the nine city destinations in a Tell Us Your Dream City posting event on the company's Facebook page. During the course of the contest, GuildMaster will highlight the top global fashion capitals, along with ongoing posts revealing the top retailer and sales rep contest contenders.
"When I heard about the contest I thought, ‘They have to be kidding. A trip like this is unbelievable because there are so many places around the word that I'd love to visit,'" said Doug Self, of jdouglas in Atlanta. "It's also energizing. I plan to have my team earn as many entries as they can by the end of November."
This is GuildMaster's third promotional "tour." In 2009, Crowder met face-to-face with more than 100 retailers in stores across the country for the inaugural "GuildMaster on Tour." A second "Show Your Stuff" tour in 2010 recognized outstanding retail displays across the U.S. and supported the favorite charities of the winning dealers.
The "GuildMaster Amazing Race" will be one of the themes highlighted in GuildMaster's High Point Market showroom this fall. "The showroom will feature internationally themed foods, music and videos as well as travel giveaways," Crowder said. "It will be an atmosphere designed to re-charge our energies and to just take a break from business to have some fun."
