RE: Propane Associations Invitation to be listed and be a VPE Association Partner

The Virtual Propane Expo (VPE) was created in response to the challenges that the Coronavirus has placed on our industry. We launched our first show on April 29th and it was met with overwhelming success.

The VPE included 150 virtual vendors (exhibitors) with interactive booths and a host of presenters on its April 29 launch. As of today, VPE has 200 vendors registered.

There was no cost or hidden fees to propane marketers to virtually visit vendors or participate in any of the presentations. There were over 2500 unique visitors to this online expo the first week. Nearly 400 industry members registered for the April 29 launch

As members of the VPE Advisory Board, we are proud to have been a part of this ground-breaking event attended by hundreds of vendors and propane marketers. Feedback has been very positive.

We know that due to the Coronavirus some of you may have either cancelled or are considering cancelling your summer conferences.

If that is the case, we welcome your participation in Spring, Summer and future VPE activities, and would be pleased to have your association as an Association Partner with VPE.

There is no cost to your association.

Please consider the chart below that summarizes what VPE provides to Association Partners:

The 5 items above are suggestions however please let us know if you have other means by which to increase VPE exposure and participation.. We are open to your suggestions.

This is an opportunity to provide value and continuity of communications to and with your members by providing an easy-to-access forum for your members to visit with marketers as well vendors about topics such as new technologies to help grow their businesses, propane liability issues, as well as safety, training, supply and compliance challenges that so many of your members deal with on a daily basis.

Our next VPE online Expo is scheduled for Oct 22, 2020 and VPE would love to have you participate.

These are certainly challenging times that require outside the box thinking to better serve the propane industry in general and your members in particular.

Please note that your association is welcome to be listed for free even if you choose not to become a VPE Association Partner.   Any association – free listing and Association Partners – will be listed in the Associations Section of the site.

If you will join us as a VPE Partner, simply reply in the affirmative, and we will get started, or reach out to us for additional information.
