For the past few months, we’ve been working hard to prepare for our annual “Back to Business” New Product launch which took place last week in sunny Orlando Florida. Trucks started arriving at the beautiful  World Center Marriot as early as July 28th bringing in new marketing materials, signage and of course, all of our new 2018 machines, software and accessories. The Brother team excitedly awaited the arrival of our Brother dealers as they anxiously anticipated the product reveal on August 1st! Despite an uninvited guest named “Tropical Storm Emily” who thankfully just brought with her rain and some wind, nothing could dampen our spirits and everyone braved the gusty winds and dark clouds to finish our set up and start welcoming Dealers to the 2018 Back to Business Event!
