July 2019

Dear Friends:

We call it “Trade Show Season,” essentially late Spring, with more than a few trade shows to either attend and see what may be new or to exhibit and show off our latest.

NEOCON, held at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, is the largest show exhibiting to the office furniture industry. We have a sizable presence with 15 staff and a 140’ long display of our newest creations as well as old stand-bys. In the three days we had thousands of new visitors and old friends stop by and say “hello.” It was quite gratifying to hear so many accolades for our products and world class customer service! Humbling, in fact.

At the same time, INFOCOMM was going on at the Convention Center in Orlando. The focus is more tech-oriented so we showed more components aimed at that industry, like Power and Communication Grommets and wireless charging. Again, a wonderful show with record crowds at our smaller 20’ x 20’ display. They loved all the new techie stuff!

A nice way to start the summer with good indications for the future. Happy Fourth of July weekend to you and yours, and may 2019 be a good year!
