pei bulks up education at nacs

New “Mega-Sessions” will introduced during the educational sessions provided by the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) at the upcoming National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show from Nov. 6 to 9 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

PEI’s educational lineup on November 7 and 8 includes three new Mega-Sessions titled: “I’m No Good with Names, but I Never Forget a Face” (presented by Bob Gray, Memory Edge Corp.); “Credit as a Profit Center” (presented by Abe Walkingbear Sanchez, A/R Management Group); and “Working at Cross Purposes: Managing the Manufacturer & Distributor Conflict” (Mike Marks, Indian River Consulting). Additional educational topics are scheduled concurrently throughout the show. Among them, Phil Lampert from the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition and Hoon Ge from the National Biodiesel Board will review the latest developments on alternative fuels.

“The 2007 PEI educational lineup at the NACS Show is one of the most extensive ever,” said Robert Renkes, executive vice president and general counsel for PEI. “PEI’s Educational Committee has put a tremendous amount of effort into the preparations for the upcoming show, and attendees will surely benefit from their hard work and the variety of the topics being presented this year.”

In addition to the education provided by PEI at the NACS Show, several networking opportunities are available for attendees. Tuesday, PEI’s peer consultant groups meet, followed by roundtable discussions for Young Executives. PEI’s annual Industry Reception will be held from 5:30–7 PM on Thursday, Nov. 8. The tradeshow will be open throughout the afternoon on Wednesday and Thursday, and on Friday morning.
