We have found this to be an excellent venue for networking with both our customers and suppliers.
We also owe a huge Thank-you to DWA tradeshow services for helping our truck driver find his way and unloading our very heavy hog late in the day just in time for us to set up. They were very nice to work with and very accommodating during a stressful move across the trade show with 40,000 lbs. through everyone else’s booths that were already set up.
Preparing and setting up for a trade show involves a multitude of small details, especially when it involves bringing equipment.
If the truck delivering the wood hog for the show booth, everyone has to work together and work late.
