Marc Spring, President of Evolved Office and founder of ITEX Expo and imageSource Magazine, has reacquired the premier national trade show and industry publication. A veteran of the office industry with keen insight into marketplace trends, Spring is excited about the opportunity to re-engage with ITEX, notably to revamp the format for the upcoming 2017 show held at the Mandalay Bay, April 18-20th, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV.
“As the only vendor-agnostic event within our industry, ITEX has the unique opportunity to support dealers and help them build their local brands. When the opportunity presented itself to reacquire the show, I didn’t think twice about ‘putting the band back together’ and taking on the challenge of transforming what ITEX has become into the innovative resource for dealers that I know it can be.”
To provide attendees with the most relevant education sessions and the most intriguing industry speakers, Spring has partnered with the analyst team at InfoTrends and Buyers Lab (BLI) to craft and deliver an exciting agenda for ITEX. “We are excited to partner with Marc and look forward to delivering an exceptional program to ITEX attendees,” commented Gerry Stoia, CEO of InfoTrends/Buyers Lab. “Our analysts have their fingers on the pulse of the most important industry trends. Their domain expertise and contacts combined with Marc’s passion for delivering a world-class event will be a great formula for ITEX going forward.”
ITEX is the only independent national conference and expo where office technology dealers, vendors, solution providers, resellers, distributors, and managed services providers can share perspectives and discuss how to evolve in the B2B office imaging and information industry. Spring and his planning team will collaborate on show development, market trends, and new services to further enhance the overall experience for the exhibitors and attendees who make up the ITEX community.
“My vision is for attendees to use the show as a resource for optimizing their current business strategies and strengthening relationships by sharing ideas and best practices, while being open to forward-thinking possibilities for growth. And, that’s exactly what I plan to do,” says Spring.
The two-day conference and exposition offers something for every partner in the office equipment and solutions space—from dealers looking to expand their portfolios with products and services, to connecting with current and new suppliers and/or sharing best practices with peers.
