“As retailers are making their marketing plans to promote their companies, I would suggest that they join us in July for the Can-Do Conference,” said Gregg Walker, director of communications at PERC. “There, they will be able to learn from experts how to make connections with current and prospective customers.

“This is our first such conference,” he added. “It was developed in response to increased demand for resources about how to reach customers with positive messages. As we all know, there are so many demands on people’s attention today. How can we get their attention with the many reasons for using propane? That’s one of the things the conference will help retailers do.”
