Thanks to everyone who came out to our Product and Technology Expo at the St. Charles Convention Center last week! We had a great turnout with nearly 400 attendees from more than 200 companies.

The breakout sessions were a great opportunity for our guests to hear from some of our top vendors, including: AFC Cable Systems, APC, Brady, Eaton’s B-Line Series Solutions, Emerson Networks/Liebert, Fluke, Greenlee, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems, LUTZE, Mersen, Panduit, Rockwell Automation, SolaHD, Universal Lighting Technologies, Wirewerks and more. Our vendors hosted a wide array of seminars on topics ranging from lighting, automation, safety, data centers, wiring devices to product demos like the Steinhauer ModCenter. Attendees left the seminars feeling better informed on current technology and new products.

The Expo show floor was filled with more than 70 booths of vendors and industry representatives. This was a great opportunity to meet many vendors first-hand. Walking around the expo floor, we heard some wonderful conversations with our guests and vendors. Many vendors expressed the great time they had meeting customers.

It was amazing to see such a wide group of people from industrial companies, commercial entities and construction gathered together to learn more about our products and the latest technology news. The opportunity to network, get hands on with the products and ask vendors questions directly is priceless, and we look forward to offering more opportunities like this in the future.

Thank you to everyone who made it out to our first ever Product and Technology Expo, we hope to see you again at our upcoming events!
