Distribution America and PRO Group are excited to announce the annual Executive Planning Conference (EPC) will be held in-person at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa November 16-18, 2021. Attendees can expect all the pillars of the EPC, including the scheduled one-on-one meetings, receptions and a golf tournament. Last year’s EPC was held virtually via Zoom.
Located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, the Sawgrass Marriott offers a variety of luxury amenities for EPC attendees to enjoy. In addition to multiple restaurants and lounges on the property, an additional 12 restaurants are within walking distance and 24 eateries are located in the Beaches Town Center within 5 miles of the resort.
The EPC will also feature a tournament at the Dye’s Valley Course, a TPC Sawgrass premier golf destination. A Golfweek top ranked course, the Dye’s Valley Course has been home to many tournaments, including the Korn Ferry Challenge in 2020 and the Mackenzie Tour Qualifying in 2018 and 2019.
“Everyone I have talked to is so looking forward to returning to an in-person Executive Planning Conference,” says Steve Synnott, president and CEO at PRO Group. “The personal interaction in a resort setting will be a welcome respite from an over-Zoomed audience in the past year and a half.”
Dave Christmas, president and CEO at Distribution America, added, “the benefits of the live format and the networking opportunities it affords cannot be measured. The ability to engage and connect with each other face-to-face outside of the scheduled meetings provides our distributor and vendor partners the chance to expand their business relationships.”
Over the course of the two day conference, attendees will have one-on-one meetings to discuss new product launches, promotions, program details and new business opportunities for the coming year. Additional receptions will allow attendees to meet in a more relaxed atmosphere and provide the opportunity to take advantage of the luxury amenities at Sawgrass.
