The International Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Council of Associations (IICRCA) has announced it is partnering with Event Planning Concepts (EPC), a professional event planning company, to execute its upcoming educational conference and trade show. After a request for proposal (RFP) process, the IICRCA Board of Directors determined that the planning expertise and successful track record of EPC would be the most helpful in meeting its high standards for the educational conference and trade show.

"We are dedicating a lot of time and effort into the planning of the educational conference and trade show and are thrilled to add the knowledge and expertise of Event Planning Concepts to the mix,” said Tony Wheelwright, Chairman, IICRCA. “Their passion for event planning and detail-oriented approach will guarantee the IICRCA educational conference and trade show exceeds attendee expectations.”

The IICRCA educational conference and trade show will serve as the annual event to bring together industry leaders, suppliers, registrants and certified firms. The educational conference and trade show will focus on insightful sessions that provide attendees with several tools to transform their companies into more profitable and better run businesses. EPC is currently identifying venue locations for the event. Dates are also yet to be determined.

EPC has planned and overseen conventions for several organizations, including The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, Department of The Navy, The Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management and NASA. All senior-level employees at EPC are Certified Meeting Planners (CMP), the event planning industry’s highest standard for professionalism. The high caliber of EPC staff and the vast experience of the organization will ensure the IICRCA educational conference and trade show is executed professionally and demonstrates ongoing value for attendees.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with the IICRCA for its first educational conference and trade show,” said Derek Jenks, CMP, president and CEO, EPC. “The Council’s dedication aligns well with our mission and I am excited to see how we apply our expertise to plan the premier industry event.”
