Evergreen Marketing Group announces 2019 manufacturer sales rep workshop dates

Workshops will be held in Atlanta, Portland, Oregon and Dallas.

The Evergreen Marketing Group has selected the 2019 dates and locations for its popular one-day workshops for independent and factory-direct sales reps. Called “Managing your Relationships with Independent Distribution,” the workshops have been held around the country since 2006 and focus on sharing best practices in working with independent construction/industrial supply distributors.

In 2019, the workshops will be held:

  • May 22 – Atlanta, GA
  • August 27 – Portland, OR
  • December 12 – Dallas, TX

The final workshop for 2018 will be held December 13 in Dallas.

“These workshops have become extremely popular with both factory-direct and independent manufacturer sales reps,” said Evergreen CEO Kevin Higginbotham. “We began holding these workshops more than 10 years ago to help improve the relationship between independent distributors and the manufacturer sales reps who call on them. We cover subjects like distributor financials, best methods for communication, and joint marketing and sales planning. The feedback we get from attendees has been fantastic.”

“The panel discussion is a unique segment of the program,” said Higginbotham. “We call it ‘amnesty day’ where no question is out of bounds. It’s a great way for a factory or independent rep to hear directly from a group of distributors about the key issues that can impact their relationship. This is consistently the favorite part of each workshop.” During the panel discussion a group of Evergreen construction/industrial distributors field questions from workshop attendees.

­There is a nominal fee to attend the workshop. For more information, contact the Evergreen Marketing Group at 972-242-1600. Learn more at
