The TechShop team and more than 3,500 attendees from around the world recently joined Integrated Supply Network (ISN) at its 14th annual Tool Dealer Expo June 24-25 in Orlando, FL. There, suppliers launched new products and gave away more than $2 million in cash and prizes throughout the weekend event.
The expo included product and sales training, live demos, networking and dinners, as well as plenty of buying and selling. Our team was impressed seeing the numbers of orders being written each day of the show. Your mobile tool distributors utilized their time at the show to meet one-on-one with key suppliers, learning more about new tools that you’ll see on their trucks soon.
According to ISN, attendees had access to the best deals of the year, cash prizes and chances to win giveaways including a 2016 Chevy Silverado and a 2016 Mazda Miata from ISN, a 2016 Chevy Camaro from Wilton JET, a 2016 Jeep Wrangler from IRWIN Tools, a 2016 Polaris RZR from Steelman Pro, along with cash prizes from ISN and Ingersoll Rand, VISA gift cards from Redline Detection, a 72” Extreme Tools roller cabinet and a VIP racing experience from DeWalt.
Suppliers were presented with awards for their sales achievements and creativity and engagement in the show:
• Best New Product Debuted – Ingersoll Rand IQV20 W5132 and W5152;
• Best Product Demonstration – Milwaukee Tools with its new cordless polisher demo and training throughout the booth;
