SPHEM President’s Message – Spring 2019

As another regular season comes to a close I want to wish everyone who is gearing up for a long run in the playoffs the best of luck! It is also time to start thinking about our annual meeting.  We have a great location this year for our members and our valued vendors to get together at the JW Marriott in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World!

I want to express a great deal of thanks to Anita Ramsay and Natalie Grant for all their hard work in planning our annual conference. This show could not be put on without them!

We think we have a great meeting planned for all. Plenty of education sessions and time to interact as a group. Our vendor exhibition continues to sell out with 200 exhibit booths this year. Many thanks to the SPHEM Executive Committee for all their efforts. Also, to PHATS President, Chris Kingsley for his help and support in my first year as president. It is nice having him down the hallway to be able to bounce ideas off each other.  I appreciate all these guys do for our group, while maintaining their busy schedules.

Congratulations Ken Lowe who will be our 2019 PHATS/SPHEM Hall of Fame honoree. Please join us as we honor Ken on his amazing career. We are also very happy to welcome former Edmonton Oilers great and Ken?s brother Kevin who I am sure will have many stories about Ken?s many accomplishments. We also look forward to honoring our members who have reached milestones in their own careers. Please join us for a great night.

Special thanks to our valued sponsors, long time exhibitors and our vendors who are joining us for the first time. Without all of you we could not put on a conference of this size.

Best of luck the rest of the way! We look forward to seeing everyone in Austin,


Darren Granger
Head Equipment Manager
