“The Convention gave us an opportunity to network with so many people. There were a lot of businesses that could help our company succeed; there were great ideas, and we were able to grow as a company. We also noticed that this convention was attended by the leaders of the companies who can make decisions. We left with quite a few leads and are pleased with what we were able to accomplish.”

“We feel it’s important to exhibit at the NHLA Convention because we have a lot of customers who attend, and we can see them all in a short amount of time. We also display new products and get our message across in an efficient manner. We see all of our customers who are usually stuck in mills, and we get to establish that relationship face-to-face.”
