Ideal Supply's 2014 Trade Shows Were a Huge Success
Written by Ideal Supply, June 4th, 2014
2014 marked Ideal Supply’s 20th year for hosting our annual trade show, and if this year’s success was any indication on the future of these shows, they are only getting better with age.
As in the past, we held our annual trade show in Stratford at the Rotary Complex, and expanded in the North to Orillia at Casino Rama. “We understood that it was a long day for our northern customers to travel to Stratford, so to make it easier for them, it was decided to run a trade show in their backyard. Both locations are great venues to showcase to our customers the leading edge in technology, new products, and services that Ideal covers in all markets. However; these shows can only be successful because of people like you, who take the time to attend and see all of what Ideal Supply offers”, notes John MacDonald -Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
Our customers responded in record-breaking numbers, not only for the new northern show but for our traditional show in Stratford as well. Between the North and South shows, there were over 220 booths, with our customers receiving over $100,000 in prizes that Ideal Supply gave away.
We would like to thank the hundreds of customers that participated in our Amazing Race Pit Stop Challenges. By entering your name in the Amazing Race challenges, it gave each of our customers that participated a chance to win the Grand Prize, two Air Canada tickets for anywhere in Canada that Air Canada flies. Congratulations to the winner, Rod Crich of Sepoy Wiring in Lucknow. We would also like to congratulate Ed Jagt of Pro-Tech in Barrie, the winner of the Kleen-Flo ATV.
We appreciate our customers and vendors for once again helping to make both of our 2014 Trade Shows a huge success, with attendance and sales. The countdown is on, and plans are already underway for our 2015 Trade Show and we look forward to seeing you there!
