Meetings & Training

Please join us for this timely webinar, hosted by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance.  You may have seen the recent report from the ILSR, or heard it referenced on ThinkTank.  Join us for this information webinar, learn how you can fight back, and hear from IS dealers who are doing so today.


 Amazon's moving to capture public-sector spending, and it's doing so in a way that puts local governments and local economies at risk. In this webinar, Olivia LaVecchia, senior researcher at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and co-author of the recent report, Amazon's Next Frontier: Your City's Purchasing, as well as the widely-read report, Amazon's Stranglehold, will discuss what independent office products businesses need to know about Amazon's local government strategy. LaVecchia will also cover key information about Amazon's Marketplace and the company's tactics beyond the public sector. Finally, this webinar will give independent office products businesses talking points to use in conversations about Amazon — and strategies to fight back.
