Conway Office Solutions celebrated its 40th Anniversary on May 19, 2016 with a day of food, fun, education, and networking. Attendees of the event enjoyed a BBQ lunch straight off the smokers from Gabi's Smoke Shack, late afternoon appetizers, door prizes, raffles, and more.

In addition to live demonstrations and facility tours, Conway also offered 4 terrific break-out sessions on topics that would provide value to guests. Throughout the day, special guest speakers provided information on IT solutions, In-House Marketing solutions, Multimedia solutions, and Sustainability solutions.

As guests toured the facility, they were able to learn more about Conway while participating in trivia and putting a hole in one. You can read more about the prizes and our sponsers at our Facebook Page.
