Down in the heart of Nashville, where the up and coming artists are a dime a dozen and the two-stepping is pumping, you will find a slice of the repair industry at a little saloon called ERC.

Not sure what the Electronics Reuse Conference (ERC) is? Well if you work in electronics refurbishment and repair, assets management, electronics recycling, or digital inclusion, you’ll want to get this conference on your schedule. ERC is celebrating it’s 15th birthday this year and this teenaged electronics event has a jam-packed agenda with a variety of topics that will not disappoint.

With so many sessions showcasing influencers in the industry, it will be hard to choose which to attend. But we’re here to help! First things first; grab your pen, some paper, and your cowboy boots.

Walk Tall with the Industry Giants

Be sure to check out the pre-conference training offerings like the Microsoft Imaging Training Workshop. In this session, they are offering a hands-on lab training so you can learn the technical details and processes for building and deploying Windows 10.

What if you’re looking to become R2 certified? You are able to add on a special two-day R2 Internal Auditor Class to the ERC event where you will learn how to effectively implement and internally audit R2 inside your company.

These two sessions, and so many other pre-conference offerings, are sure to get you ramped up for the three days ahead.

Build a Foundation with the ERC Basics

Once the conference is off in full swing, you will be able to attend sessions on a variety of topics to get your creative and innovative juices flowing. Topics range from how to properly handle lithium-ion batteries or knowing what it takes to build a winning corporate culture to Recycling 101 and how to attract school and corporate contracts. It’s everything in the reuse industry, and then some. 

Keynotes to Knock Your Socks Off

We can’t possibly forget about the keynotes! There are multiple panel discussions involving some of the tops minds in the industry who are ready to share their ideas and knowledge with attendees.

You won’t want to miss the presentation on Optimized for Success: How Technology Can Help Grow Your Repair Shop, presented by our own VP of Operations Stacy Hamer. She will be outlining the unique repair customer journey and how technologies can help to overcome the challenges faced by both you and your customers. Her knowledge is boundless and Stacy is sure to motivate you to make positive changes when you’re back in the office.

Stay Social

Because what would Nashville be without a chance to fill yer boots. The Electronics Reuse Conference will host networking receptions and a dinner during the event. These opportunities to come together with others in the industry is the chance of a lifetime. Share campfire stories from the dusty trail, share some industry secrets, and take in a lesson or two from your peers in wireless and repair.

Attending ERC in Honkey Tonk Land? Yee-Haw! We’d love if you stopped to chew the cud with our iQmetrix cowpoke who will be tending the sheep at our very own booth.
