JDUG 2022: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS YEAR’S JDUG SUMMIT

After last year’s virtual conference, visitors (including the Hunt Marketing team!) were very excited to attend JDUG 2022 in Orlando, FL!

JDUG stands for JDIS User Group, an organization that consists exclusively of John Deere dealers. Each year, the group holds the JDUG Summit, a conference that provides access to things like trainings, networking opportunities and solutions-based vendors, like us!


Keep reading for a few highlights from JDUG 2022.

Quality Time with Some John Deere Dealers We Love

One of the things we value most about the JDUG Summit is the opportunity to spend intentional time with some of our John Deere dealer partners outside of the normal hustle and bustle of marketing agency life. This year, we were fortunate to visit with our wonderful John Deere dealer partners, including 21st Century Equipment, Ag-Pro, Sunshine Quality Solutions & WADE, INC., during JDUG 2022.

In addition to spending time with some of our current John Deere partners, JDUG 2022 offered an awesome opportunity to make new connections in the John Deere dealer space.


John Deere Dealer Reception

A dealer reception is held each year at JDUG. JDUG 2022’s dealer reception was a luau theme. John Deere dealer representatives and other guests sampled from various food stations with themed cuisine choices, like teriyaki steak fried rice, shrimp tacos, chicken kebabs and pineapple ice cream.

This year’s John Deere dealer reception featured a live band, fun photo ops and an ice sculpture with a live melon carving. It was a great time to meet people we'd communicated with online and catch up with clients and old friends.


Fun Times in the Sunshine State

We can’t end this blog without mentioning this year’s fun venue. The Hunt Marketing team stayed at Disney’s Dolphin Resort as part of this trip. Naturally, our crew had to take some time for team building at the parks as well. Some high points included:

  • Caitlyn experienced Disney for the first time ever, with seasoned Kallen as her expert guide

  • Will, Beth and their children enjoyed some family time at the parks when JDUG wasn’t in swing. Their daughter said it was the best week of her life!

We'd have to agree with Annabelle - it was a pretty fantastic week! What an amazing opportunity to share our passion for all things marketing, specifically John Deere marketing, with both old and new friends. We look forward to JDUG 2023 in Las Vegas, NV!
