Co-Location Promises Large Decision-Maker Presence at the 2018 Show

Fort Lauderdale, Florida  – The 2018 Imaging and Technology Education Exposition (ITEX 2018) is already off to a promising start. Show organizers have announced collaboration with Select Dealer Group (SDG) to host their annual financial review meeting during the ITEX show. The 2017 show saw renewed success under the management of founder Marc Spring, largely due to its emphasis on providing vendors and resellers access to C-level executives and decision-makers across the industry.

With six co-located events headlining the 2017 show, attendance increased over 50% between 2016 and 2017. “Co-located events are a great way to boost attendance and strengthen both our event and those of our partners,” Spring added “we provide access to premium meeting space, industry education, and our show floor, and [we] bring industry powerhouses together in a way that would not be possible without the ITEX show.”

The exclusive member’s only Select Dealer Group Financial Review Meeting will be attended by owners, CFOs and service managers. The group has three meetings annually with this meeting designated for their financial review. Mr. Jim Dotter of Virginia Business Systems views co-locating with ITEX as an opportunity to take advantage of the additional education offered at ITEX and groups that are co-locating with ITEX.

The co-location with SDG is the first of many to come as show management looks towards securing past co-locators (Pros Elite, ECi, PrintAudit, Clover, MPSA, and etc.) and building with new additions like SDG. The 2018 ITEX Show will be hosted at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, NV on May 15th – 17th. For more information on the show, please visit


About SDG
The Select Dealer Group is comprised of office equipment and systems dealer members who are serious about implementing the Model for Success in their dealerships. Because of the collaborative nature of the SDG, membership is limited to one dealer from each market territory (click here for the territory coverage map). Meetings are designed to provide the strategies, encouragement and support you need as you implement the Model. The SDG will meet three times per year at locations around the country.

ITEX Imaging & Technology Education Exposition is the largest and most extensive national trade show connecting vendors and resellers in the office technology space. Founded by Marc Spring in 2001, ITEX was developed to provide dealers with access to a vendor-agnostic trade show featuring practical education that addresses modern industry solutions to help grow their businesses. As the show grew over the years, it proved to be a huge success—with revenue growing 780 percent between the show’s inception in 2001 and when Spring sold the show in 2009. Spring reacquired the show in 2016. For detailed information visit
