Avon Virtual Visionaries Revisited
Over the last weekend in August, more than 9,000 attendees from across the growing Avon community joined together and tuned in to our biggest event ever—Avon Convention 2020: Virtual Visionaries! Inspired by our forward-looking, business-savvy Representatives, we created a three-day digital experience (accessible from the comfort of home!) to share important updates and training tools, reveal new products, celebrate big accomplishments, recognize our top achievers, hand out major prizes and so much more.
Down to business.
This year’s Avon Convention, our annual business conference, was unlike any event we’ve ever hosted before. Since we couldn’t be together in one place, we shifted to an online platform and picked a special theme—Visionaries—that inspires us to celebrate and learn from our past achievements while setting our sights on bigger and better gains for the coming year. We unveiled amazing new products and shared the latest tools to support our Representatives’ continued growth, success and satisfaction. Plus, our Visionaries were given access to exclusive shopping opportunities on featured products (including holiday launches, new fragrances and skin care collections, and limited edition Avon merchandise) in the lead-up to Virtual Visionaries and throughout the big event.
By the numbers.
The weekend was filled with some amazing highlights:
$1.8 million. Our event participants received over $1.8 million in giveaways—lots of products, incredible prizes and more.
$20K. Not one, but two Representatives each won a $10,000 LG Home Appliance Makeover (perks of our partnership with our parent company, LG H&H!).
9K. More than 9,000 dedicated Avon Visionaries joined us for these three days of interactive fun and learning.
$175. Attendees with an All Access Plus pass each received over $175 worth of new products and classic Avon favorites—gifts from us for investing time and energy in their businesses.
$20. We launched a brand new earning opportunity for all event attendees to score an extra $20 bonus for themselves and for qualifying new recruits who join their Avon team.
13. Our packed agenda included 13 different sessions comprising product training, business development classes, general sessions, a master class with branding expert Sally Hogshead, and more.
3. Every year, we feature our three nominees for the National Spirit of Avon Award, which recognizes a role model for the community who shows passion and puts others first. The honoree, selected by event attendees, will be awarded with a $2,000 bonus. Join the fun and be a part of our next recognition round!
2. We celebrated this year’s two honorees of the Avon Visionary Award, our highest and most prestigious honor. The award recognizes forward-thinking visionary spirits who embody our core values of belief, integrity, respect, trust and humility, and is accompanied by a $10,000 bonus ($5,000 personal cash bonus and $5,000 towards a chosen charity).
1. One very lucky Representative won an all-expenses-paid trip to Paris for herself and a guest (including round-trip airfare, luxury accommodations, a guided tour of the Louvre and $2,000 of spending money!).
Immeasurable and extraordinary.
Yet there’s one thing we can’t quantify: the power of the Avon community. In this unusual year, we’ve been able to bring thousands together to learn, connect, and inspire one another. We’re grateful to the 9,000+ Visionaries who chose to invest time in their businesses and in this special experience. We’re so proud of their hard work and enthusiasm, and we can’t wait to see what all our Representatives will accomplish in the coming year and beyond! Congratulations to our big prize winners and to all our Avon Virtual Visionaries on their achievements and continued success.
