ST. LOUIS ⎯ The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) will hold its Annual Convention and Exposition June 14–16, 2020, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN. The theme for the 2020 Convention is “Gain the Advantage.”

Discussing the theme, EASA Chairman of the Board, Mr. Brian Larry, said, “This is the highlight event of the year for so many EASAns, and I believe we are better business owners and a stronger industry for having participated. Every year, I look forward to seeing my industry peers from around the world, connecting with suppliers and attending the training.”

The EASA 2020 Convention’s education line-up features a wide-ranging program designed to address all areas of the electromechanical sales and repair business. More than 25 education sessions focus on technical, sales/marketing and management topics, including open forums on technical, management and emerging technology trends.
