AOPD & DPCG Announce 2020 Annual Meeting Dates and Venue
St. Charles, IL (May 30, 2019) – American Office Products Distributors, Inc. (AOPD) is pleased to announce their dates and venue for their 2020 Annual Meeting. Dealer members, Business Partners, and guests will be invited to attend at The Fairmont in Dallas, TX from Sunday, March 8th – Wednesday, March 11th.
In order to decrease travel expenses and time for dealer members and Business Partners, Direct Purchasing Catalog Group (DPCG) will hold their Annual Catalog Meeting immediately following the conclusion of the AOPD Meeting, at The Fairmont. The DPCG meeting will take place Wednesday, March 11th and Thursday, March 12th.
Mark Leazer, AOPD Executive Director stated, “AOPD is pleased to be holding its 2020 Annual meeting in Dallas. Some of the planning already undertaken for the anticipated Industry Week has helped shape some changes for next year. Although IW is not happening, we believe many in our channel strongly support the “CEO” concepts put forth by BSA – to consolidate, eliminate redundant costs, and optimize industry meetings. So, we opted for a central location in a major airline hub for easier travel. We are cutting out a half day by ending at noon on Wednesday, while maintaining our popular and valuable format. With the central location most attendees will get home a day earlier. Did we mention time and monetary savings? Also, we are pleased to be co-located again with DPCG’s event so that these two industry meetings can remain together. We anticipate another exciting and productive meeting with our Dealers and Business Partners next year in Big D.”
Separate invitations, reservation information and details for each group will be sent at the end of the year.
