“Our new Epicomm Experience app is a great tool for those attending the conference to use to enhance their time in Savannah, and for those considering attending to obtain detailed information on what they will gain by joining their peers at an exciting and informative industry event,” says Ken Garner, Epicomm President and Chief Executive Officer.

The Epicomm Experience brings together representatives of every industry segment—printing, mailing, fulfillment, and marketing—to learn from management experts, share frontline ideas with colleagues from every part of the country and every size company, and network with their peers, all in a stimulating education environment.

Sessions and panels will address topics ranging from how to find and retain the best employees for today’s expanded service offerings and how to develop a consultative sales force to where to find opportunities for profitable growth internally and externally and how to develop and use new marketing ideas to distinguish a company from its competition.

Keynote speakers include Jeff Havens of The Havens Group, who will provide leadership insights in “Unleash Your Inner Tyrant!” and investigate generational issues at work in the session, “Us vs. Them.” Keynoter Bryan Dodge of Dodge Development, Inc., will challenge leaders to take performance to the next level by conquering their fears and explain his “three laws of leadership” in the presentation, “How to Take Ownership of Leadership.”

The conference’s Vendor Showcase will feature exhibits by two dozen companies providing products and services for industry printers, mailers, and fulfillment and marketing services providers. A full listing of exhibitors can be found on the Epicomm Experience app.

Conference events include plant tours of the Kennickell Group’s printing and fulfillment operations and DX Marketing, both in Savannah; a golf tournament at The Club at Savannah Harbor; and a guest-spouse program with tours of historic Savannah and the Victoria District “Low Country.”

The Epicomm Experience will also include plenty of opportunities to network with peers and socialize in the “Hostess City of the South,” where conference-goers and guests can explore a cultural history dating back 260 years as they view buildings rich with architectural significance nestled under ancient oaks and Spanish moss. The Hyatt Regency Savannah host hotel is located alongside the Savannah River in the midst of one of the country’s largest historic districts, and is a short walk away from direct access to restaurants, shopping, and Savannah River ferries.
