EDmarket Celebrates Centennial Year
Silver Spring, Md. — The Education Market Association (EDmarket) is celebrating 100 years of service to the educational products industry with year-long tributes to its remarkable history. In addition to the 100th anniversary logo in use during 2016, a digital timeline has been launched on the website that categorizes the key accomplishments and major milestones of the association by decade.
100th Anniversary Parties are being held at both annual trade events produced by the association: EDexpo (March 10 in Las Vegas) and EDspaces (November 4 in Cincinnati). Both of these events will feature celebratory toasts, themed music, photo booths with historical costumes, and a Memory Lane slide show highlighting photos of our members networking, learning, and forging lifelong friendships.
EDmarket members have been supporting the centennial efforts with generous contributions to the Century Club. Donors are recognized on the website, in the digital timeline, with special ads, and with Century Club pins distributed at EDexpo and EDspaces. The Association’s publications including Essentials Magazine and the 2016 EDmarket Membership Directory will include special features, photos and memories.
“For the last 100 years your association has been at the center of bringing together the industry’s most innovative manufacturers and publishers with the best dealers and distributors to impact every student’s education experience, both physically and mentally, and we are looking forward to the next century of serving the marketplace.” says Jim McGarry, President/CEO of EDmarket.
