Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I am a Britax Latina Advisory Board Member and Blogger. As always, all opinions, ideas, and stories are my own.
There are few things that reenergize me more than meeting up with a group of talented bloggers. I leave their company knowing that I will be more committed to my blog and, most importantly, that I love what I do. My most recent encounter with some highly-talented (and super nice, and funny, and smart…God-I-just-love-them!) bloggers was at a meeting at the new BRITAX headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.
As you know, I’ve been a BRITAX Latina Blogger for about a year now, and I honestly couldn’t be happier with the brand. I continue to learn new and exciting technologies that BRITAX implements in its products and have the peace of mind that my son is as safe as he can possibly be. For me, BRITAX is synonymous with “SAFETY” and absolutely nothing is more important to me than my kids’ safety.
When we touched down in Charlotte we headed to a new restaurant in the Ballantyne neighborhood, Global Restaurant Bar & Lounge. Our menu was set, the food was good, and the conversations were lots of fun.
It’s amazing how much you really do “know” someone by reading their blogs and conversations flow like you’ve known each other for years. But, although we were having a great time, we called it a night after dinner because we had a long (& early) day with BRITAX.
The next morning we all met at the brand-new, almost 500,000 square feet BRITAX headquarters facility. The last time we all met (at the old headquarters) we were amazed with BRITAX’s commitment to excellence and their strong work ethic. This time, we were completely blown away! The new HQ facility is simply amazing. For one, it is huge! I swear, you could get lost in the warehouse – it seemed to stretch for a mile! But what I was most impressed with was the innovative technology used here. We learned that BRITAX recently upgraded its warehouse management system (a sophisticated computer-based program) and they’re installing a new crash test simulator to continue to stay ahead of government standards. VERY impressive!
We spent the rest of our very productive day with Carolina Atkinson, Director of International Marketing and Gary Kester, Director of International Sales. We learned about some of their features, like the ClickTight Installation System, a revolutionary installation system that’s as easy as 1-2-3-CLICK!
This is going to be a very exciting 2013/2014 for me with the BRITAX brand, and I’m so fortunate to get to share my findings with you. Stay tuned for more great info from BRITAX!
