Integra has announced the lineup for its ‘Celebrating 20 years’ National Conference being held on 28th September at the Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon.
Integra’s CEO, Aidan McDonough, will start the day by taking a look back at the industry over the last 20 years and focusing on how the independent channel can work closer together to achieve greater success. BOSS CEO, Phillip Lawson will also be joining Integra to provide an insight into the future trends in office working practices and the impact this will have on the sector over the next 5 years, the new opportunities and how dealers can exploit these. This will be followed by an informative session, presented by Beta Distribution in partnership with iStorage, on the implications and opportunities presented by the new GDPR regulations (General Data Protection Regulation) that comes into effect on 25th May 2018.
Afternoon Workshops will be held by Julie Collins, Chief Marketing Officer at Findel Education Limited, and Peter Waycot, Training Specialist & Performance Coach from Inspire Me. Julie will provide delegates with an overview of the Education market and the opportunities available to them. Peter, meanwhile, will focus on how to uncover additional sales opportunities outside of general Office Supplies, whilst creating differentiation in the eyes of the buyer. Both Peter and Julie will be on hand at the Supplier Exhibition to offer members further help and advice on a one to one basis.
Members can bring along their sales teams free of charge to the ‘Celebrating 20 Years’ Supplier Exhibition, featuring over 60 suppliers who will be showcasing a diverse range of products and services together with providing valuable advice and information.
