2019 EPIC Conference and Upcoming Industry Events

At the quarterly Board of Directors Meeting in April, TriMega Board of Directors voted unanimously to not hold a joint EPIC Conference and Trade Show with Independent Stationers in 2019. Factors influencing this decision included continued decline in dealer attendance since its inception in 2013, both wholesalers announcing plans for trade shows in 2019 and most importantly our primary manufacturers concern with the overall costs of multiple meetings in the same year. We are working on meeting ideas for 2019 to present to the members for comment and feedback later this year. Meanwhile we are excited about the upcoming EPIC 2018, "Disrupt Ordinary", in New Orleans LA, Oct 15th through the 18th. New Orleans is a one of kind venue, and we are working hard to make EPIC 2018 the best EPIC ever. We look forward to seeing everyone there so save those dates and look for event and registration information announcements in the coming weeks.  We are also actively working with BSA and NOPA to create a single industry event in 2020 and will keep you informed as that initiative moves forward. - (TriMega)
