Registration Open for GEAPS Leadership Conference
Portland Event is First In-Person Leadership Event Since 2019
The Grain Elevator and Processing Society is excited to announce registration is open for GEAPS Leadership Conference June 14-15 at the Holiday Inn Portland-Columbia Riverfront in beautiful Portland, Oregon, USA.
With a theme of Building Leadership Excellence, the two-day conference will provide attendees with leadership skills they will be able to directly apply at work—no matter their job title. Attendees will hear from expert presenters on important industry topics. Network with industry colleagues, have some fun in the Pacific Northwest and gain skills that will make you a better leader at work and in life.
This is GEAPS first in-person leadership conference since 2019. Visit www.geaps.com/leadershipconference to register for the conference and arrange discounted lodging through GEAPS.
Formerly known as GLEAN, the leadership conference will cover topics including:
- On the Front Lines of Leadership
- Proactively Managing Conflict
- Leading Through Change
New this year, GEAPS Leadership Conference will also include an opportunity to meet with industry vendors in the supplier showcase. While unlike the massive expo at GEAPS Exchange, this will be a great opportunity for vendors to connect with customers and for leadership attendees to ask questions and imagine possibilities in a more intimate tradeshow setting.
Bob Klare, EDG, Inc., serves on GEAPS Board of Directors. He plans to go to the Leadership Conference and hopes you will join him.
“After a couple of years of virtual events, I’m excited for this year’s Leadership Conference in the Pacific Northwest,” Klare said. “The ability to connect with GEAPS and industry leaders face to face is a highlight of the event for me, and as a board member, I am looking forward to thanking our industry suppliers for supporting the event by exhibiting at our table-top trade show.”
Exhibiting at GEAPS Leadership Conference is just $595. It’s a great opportunity for suppliers to visit with customers without massive set up efforts. Simply bring your collateral materials, a pop-up banner or two and your expertise; GEAPS provides one full registration, a table and chair.
“This is a chance for suppliers to share their products and services in a much smaller and personal atmosphere, said Brittany Labatt, who serves as GEAPS’ Sales and Conference Manager. “GEAPS wanted to create an opportunity to share your brand in addition to Exchange, creating a more personal experience to engage with industry professionals.”
