Distributors, Suppliers Connect at SMC - 5/7/2012
During the second day of the Gases and Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA) Spring Management Conference in Baltimore, MD, attendees were given a look at some upcoming technologies and new services at the event’s Contact Booth Program on Monday, April 30. More than 115 exhibitors showed products and services to an audience eager to learn how to best serve customers, with signs of business picking up around the country.
“As a supplier, the Contact Booth Program provides a complete cross-section of distribution," says Jim Appledorn, U.S. distributor sales manager at Lincoln Electric. "It allows me to see a lot of the distributors that I don’t have the opportunity to see throughout the year.”
