Home improvement industry manufacturers and vendors will have the opportunity to meet with Distribution America (DA) officials and Pro Group leaders during the 2014 Executive Planning Conference (EPC) Nov. 13-15 at the Marco Island Marriott Resort & Spa in Florida.
Steve Synnott, CEO of Denver-based Pro Group Inc., said: "word is catching on about this year's event, as all vendor categories are showing growth - a sign that vendors have heard about success stories from companies increasing their business with the help of past EPCs."
"There are quite a number of vendors that have derived great returns by supporting the EPC, including names like Coleman Cable and Jack Links Beef Jerky" he said.
The conference comes at a time where a sluggish start to 2013 is evaporating. "Vendors and retailers are seeing solid late-year sales boosts," according to Dave Christmas, president of Charlotte, NC-based Distribution America.
