Mark your calendars and get ready for the Eastern Regional Conference
2014. We have combined the best of EPEA's MAC and SESDA's SEEC to
provide a single location for one of the industry's premier training and
information platforms for electronics, appliances and management.
The conference will be held June 4 - 8, 2014 at the Virginia Beach Resort
Hotel and Conference Center, 2800 Shore Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23451.
As in the past, this location provides great guest rooms, and plenty of space
for the Industry Roundtable, Training, Trade Show and Hospitality. Please
contact the Hotel direct at 757-481-9000 to make your reservations. If you
let them know that you will be there for the Eastern Regional Conference,
you will be able to take advantage of a reduced room rate.
The registration desk will be open from 6PM to 9PM on Wednesday,
June 4th, and will also be available through Saturday morning. The training
classes will begin at 9AM on Thursday, June 5th, and continue with both
morning and afternoon sessions through Saturday, June 7th. The Trade
Show will be from 6PM to 10PM on Thursday, June 5th. The Industry
Roundtable will be at 9AM on Saturday, June 7th. The Hospitality Room
will be open every evening throughout the conference.
Currently this year's training will include classes by LG, Haier, Panasonic,
Sharp and Fred's Appliance Academy. There will also be seminars on topics
ranging from business training, computer software, social media, I pad screen
replacement, prep classes and CSR/CSM/MST/CET certification testing. The
training schedule is not final yet so there may be even more choices to fulfill
your training needs.
If you register early (before June 1, 2014) you can take advantage of
a considerable savings over the 'at-the-door' registration price. Plan
ahead to save money and ensure your place at our first EPEA and SESDA
joint convention, The Eastern Regional Conference 2014.

The Eastern Professional Electronics Association (EPEA) began in 1955 as a local non-profit association in Norfolk/Virginia Beach. It was then called the Virginia Electronics Association of Tidewater. After much intra-state "missionary work" by the founding members, it became a full-fledged state association in June 1965.
The people who originally created VEA and those who have since populated the EPEA had and have similar ambitions, similar needs, and similar problems. They felt then and continue to feel they can remain friendly business competitors while working with and learning from each other as professional colleagues. They believe that combining their industry efforts is the most effective solutions to their common professional needs.
The primary goal of the EPEA is to promote improved technical expertise, profitable business management knowledge, and fair and ethical business practices. These are aimed at benefiting the consuming public and the overall industry while improving the lot of its members. EPEA is also proud to cooperate with other organizations that enhance, promote and safeguard both the consumers of electronic products and the electronics service industry.
