Asian direct selling company, QNET hosted a five-day mega gathering recently that was akin to a United Nations’ conference which brought together some 6,000 entrepreneurs from around the world to Malaysia.
Held at the Malawati Indoor Stadium in Shah Alam, the event billed as V-Malaysia 2013 attracted participants from over 30 countries including India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Australia, the UAE, Indonesia and Malaysia.
The company’s distributors, known as Independent Representatives (IRs), had converged to learn from the personal experiences of top leaders of QNET from around the world.
The five day convention was an energy-packed, fun-filled, experience as the IRs vowed to Raise the Bar Higher, which was the theme of this year’s convention.
Prashant Kumar, Managing Director of The V, the global training and network management partner of QNET, who was bestowed the Master Networker of the Year (2011) award by Networking Times Magazine in the US, inspired the participants with his daily trainings that focused on the power of dreams, the importance of never giving up and the significance of ethical networking.
“At QNET, we give equal emphasis to the development of human capital, as we want to see our IRs flourish further and they truly become well-trained entrepreneurs. Our IRs get the opportunity to learn every aspect of direct selling from leaders who are experienced and successful.”
“Events like our V-Convention are geared towards meeting global standards of direct selling. QNET sees training as investment in attracting, retaining, and growing world-class entrepreneurs who will achieve greater success in this legitimate multi-billion dollar direct selling industry,” says Pathman about the convention.
More than 6000 QNET IRs visited the numerous booths at the QNET Pavilion, which showcased the approximately 40 brands of products and services under QNET’s nine product categories.
The IRs were able to sample and test various new products in the nutrition and digital range and receive information on the launch of new products including InShape – a weight management programme, InOcean, a mineral supplement, Pomelin – a nutrition product and AirPure, a home care product.
A daily attraction at the Pavilion was the Marussia F1 show car. Thousands thronged the booth to catch a glimpse of the F1 showpiece. QNET is the official direct selling partner of Marussia F1 Team.
Prashant Kumar from Bangalore, India said; “QNET’s partnership with F1 is amazing. Being an official direct selling partner gives us great exposure. I am a regular follower of F1 and I just love seeing QNET’s brand hitting the circuits around the world.”
QNET Chief Executive Officer, Dave Osh was happy that the V-Convention has been brought back to Malaysia after a short break.
“We have held six V-Conventions in Malaysia in the last decade, namely in Kota Kinabalu, Penang, Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam and twice at Bukit Jalil. It’s an excellent event that takes months of meticulous planning. It also aids the local economy as more thousands of participants arrive in Malaysia and book hotel rooms and spend vast sums of money on shopping.
“Many stay on for days after to enjoy the local food and visit tourist spots, too. They especially take back with them fond memories of Malaysia and encourage others to visit the country. This is one of the ways QNET helps the local economy,” adds Osh.
QNET has a strong focus on promoting ethical business practices and inculcates that in its IRs through continuous trainings and workshops. A testament to its legitimacy, besides its membership in the Direct Selling Association of Malaysia, the company is also a member of the Direct Selling Association in Singapore, a country known for its stringent legislation, as well as in the Philippines.
