The latest technologies in the electrical and mechanical equipment and services market will be on display at this year’s convention for EASA: The Electrical Apparatus Service Association Inc.

This year’s theme is “E3: Educate, Experience, and Engage.” Educational sessions will cover topics such as repairing motors and pumps, managing customer service, and improving business. Participants can experience firsthand what is new in the industry at more than 160 booths, while  engaging with others attendees to share new ideas and form new partnerships.

“There is just [no] substitute for the opportunity to talk face to face with other members,” said Tom May of Trade-Mark Industrial Inc., who has attended the convention for the past 15 years. “I also look forward to spending time in the exhibit hall to meet with our existing and potential suppliers as well as to see what’s new in the industry.”

Inside the exhibit hall, a New Product Theater will display products and services from a group of exhibitors, and 30-
