The IEP Welcomes Spirit Brands
Linthicum, Maryland – November 5, 2015 – The Independent Event Producers (IEP) welcomes Spirit Brands parent company of Cheer Tech, ECC and Mid Atlantic Championships from Hammonton, New Jersey. “The independent sector is the largest portion of the spirit industry. Independent companies bring unique qualities and superb customer service and incentives to events all across the country.” says Billy Smith, IEP Event Producer Outreach Director and owner of Spirit Celebration. The independents have been going strong since inception of the IEP back in 2009. Plans are underway for the upcoming 2015-2016 competition season and the Independents are ready. The greatest achievement for the IEP is the membership growth. Currently there are 30 companies producing 43 independents brand events and the door is open for more. Look for the “I” at your next independent event! The IEP is the nation’s only organization of Independent Cheer and Dance Event Producers. This alliance is an inclusive group that has come together to insure independent companies long term viability in the industry.
