INDIANAPOLIS, IN & ROSEMONT, IL, November 16, 2016 – Independent Stationers and TriMega announced their recent EPIC 2016 event (www.wherebighappens.com) which took place the first week of November in Nashville, Tennessee and was co-located with ECi’s Connect 2016 event. The event brought together members of both groups, manufacturers, wholesalers, system providers and other industry players for industry and category education, best practice sharing and networking opportunities.
Among the EPIC 2016 highlights this year:
“We were thrilled with the outcome of EPIC 2016,” said Lyle Dabbert, of Brown & Saenger and Chairman of TriMega. “There was an unmistakable tone of optimism, positivity and a real energy around the outlook for the independent dealer community,” he remarked.
“The format of this year’s education sessions at EPIC was very refreshing – and incredibly valuable,” commented Bryan Kristenson, of Office Plus of Kansas and Chairman of the Board for Independent Stationers.
Feedback from exhibitors was equally positive. “The EPIC tradeshow floor was energetic and traffic was strong throughout the day. We took in more show orders than ever before at EPIC, and the quality of the dealer discussions we had at our booth were top-notch,” commented Casey Avent, President of Smead. “Once again, the EPIC event delivered tremendous value for Smead,” he concluded.
