Saturday Kick-Off for AIMED's Fall Conference

The Association of Independent Mailing Equipment Dealers event was a perfect preview complement to GRAPH EXPO’s Mailing & Fulfillment Center.

The Association of Independent Mailing Equipment Dealers (AIMED) held its fall conference yesterday, Saturday, October 2, at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.

“We felt that since so many of our members would already be attending GRAPH EXPO, bringing our 2010 Fall Conference to the show would afford us the opportunity to conserve resources, bring an even greater number of our members together for specific industry education at minimal cost, plus it’s the perfect venue for expanded industry networking,” says Barbara Price, AIMED Executive Director.

The conference is designed to let attendees exchange information on current issues impacting today’s mailing, shipping and office automation specialists. The educational sessions focused on sales and marketing techniques, featuring noted speakers Georgine Trujillo, Marketing Consultant; Ursula Mentjes, Sales Coach Now; and Ruben Estrada, Estrada Strategies.

Tod Ratcliffe, OkiData Production & Graphic Arts Sales Manager, also highlighted new product opportunities.

AIMED is the leading association for independent dealers in the mailing, shipping and office automation industry. The association provides members with industry specific benchmarking, education, information plus opportunities to network and learn how to grow their businesses. AIMED’s legal, financial and affinity programs enhance and protect dealer members’ businesses.
