Micro Doctor has taken a new concept in marketing and bought it to Northeast Ohio. In the planning stages for months, it took hundreds of man hours to create the perfect event for businesses in Trumbull County to get together and mingle. The concept of an after work wine tasting combined with a business mixer is a unique marketing concept. This year, to celebrate 25 years of success, Micro Doctor held this one-of-a-kind business mixer event at the Trumbull Country Club in Warren, Ohio. The event was co-sponsored by PNC Bank, Crosby Mook Office Equipment, Burkey, Burkey & Scher LPA/Title Office, and Elite Digital Graphics. Together, Micro Doctor and sponsors mingled the night away enjoying a feast of hors d’oeuvres, and amazing wine from the Paso Robles region in California.
The event was invitation only, and provided the right about of class in a relaxed atmosphere. Each sponsor invited a selection of guests, all which were business owners or decision makers in Trumbull County. Sforza & Walker CPA, Warren Screw Machine, and Howland Orthopedic Center were among some of the guests attending that evening.
By having sponsors, we were able to have a premium wine tasting, food and great venue at Trumbull Country Club. The event was a success according to all attendees and sponsors and a second event is planned next month in Boardman at the Magic Tree Pub & Eatery. Last month’s event had 65 attendees and attendees raved about the wine selection. The night started with Matchbook Chardonnay, sponsored by Elite Digital Graphics, a printing and design company located in Warren, Ohio. The chilled, crisp white wine was the perfect way to start off the evening; unwinding from the work day. Next, Burkey, Burkey & Scher sponsored J. Lohr Merlot, followed by PNC Bank sponsoring Justin Cabernet. The night ended with Earthquake Zinfandel, sponsored by Crosby Mook Office Equipment, and Tobin James Petit Verdot, sponsored by Micro Doctor Inc. The food was amazing and each sponsor presented a 2 minute elevator pitch about their company.
Micro Doctor had special “25 years in business” wine glasses printed and imported some “special” wines for the event. Micro Doctor started in 1989 in the basement of Mark and Erica Richmond’s home. In 1992 Micro Doctor purchased its offices on Parkman Road. Micro Doctor has survived constant change and economic downturns and has become the area’s leading IT sales and service firm. Mark Richmond, President and Founder of Micro Doctor Inc., begins by stating “Every moment lost to technology trouble is a missed opportunity to move your business forward. Micro Doctor’s success is attributed to three things: innovative solutions, experienced employees, and doing ‘IT’ right.” It is with these goals in mind that Micro Doctor has continued to grow and succeed, becoming the area’s premier IT company.
Micro Doctor is no stranger to bringing new and innovative concepts not only to customers, staff and now the business community. Micro Doctor was the first company to offer Managed Services (a proactive service contract) to its customers. Micro Doctor offers world class VOIP phone systems, Sonicwall Security devices and other ground-breaking solutions to businesses. Micro Doctor wants to let area businesses know what we do, that why we wanted to hold these unique marketing events in Northeast Ohio. They even added a new marketing manager, Megan Augustine, to the staff this spring to help plan, organize and orchestrate not only these events but a whole new marketing plan.
