Clover Looks Forward to Seeing You at the GSA’s General Supplies and Services (GSS) Industry Days in NYC on Oct. 22 & 23
Steve Noyes will participate in a panel discussion concerning imaging supplies during this event. He will expand upon how dealers can help their Federal buyers satisfy their purchasing objectives for: Best Value, Environmental Sustainability, and AbilityOne by championing OEM conversions. Steve will be discussing risky liability issues and safety concerns associated with selling IP infringing, sub grade toner that can cause rashes, Deca-BDE emissions from single-use plastics, and how Clover can help your dealership become the preferred buying avenue for Remanufactured Imaging Supplies.
GSA’s Northeast and Caribbean Supply Acquisition Center—Region 2—is hosting Industry Day. The purpose of the Industry Day is to bring together Industry Partners that have a stake in contracts administered by the Region 2 Center. The event will support their MAS 67, 75, 76, and 81 IB, the remaining FSSI programs, and Global Supply. Click here for an exclusive look at The 2020 Supply Catalog.
