LAKELAND, Fla. — Integrated Supply Network (ISN) hosted hundreds of customers at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas for Tool Expo West March 17-18. Manufacturers launched first to market products, customers took advantage of nuclear deals, cash back and won incredible prizes like a 2017 Ford F150 and Harley Davidson. Tool Expo West gave away over $1million in cash and prizes this past weekend. Without a doubt, Tool Expo West 2017 was a huge success, organizers say.
As the largest national tool and equipment distributor, it should come as no surprise that ISN hosts the nation’s largest, most exciting and successful tool and equipment distribution trade shows in the industry. ISN is well known for Tool Dealer Expo, the national tool and equipment trade show in Orlando in June. 3 years ago they launched Tool Expo West taking place in March on the West coast, first in Phoenix, Arizona and this year moved it to Las Vegas. Tool Dealer Expo and now Tool Expo West have clearly made a mark on the industry as they continue to grow in attendance and offer bigger prizes every year.
Tool Expo West featured more than 90,000 SKUs from more than 150 vendors and hosted training events by Power Probe, Ingersoll Rand, Bosch, Can Do, Wilton Jet, Associated Equipment and Sunex. Milwaukee launched their new tool storage line at Tool Expo West and we had several brand new vendors introduce their products at the show: Cojali (diagnostic equipment), ShopSol (creepers and seats), Suncast (disposal equipment), Spin Secure (dash cams), World Tech Toys (drones) and Hofmann Megaplan (tire service equipment).
Ingersoll Rand brought the energy in their booth with big cash giveaways, product demos and an Irish dance performance. This helped Ingersoll Rand to take home the vendor award for “Most Spirit”. Vampire Tools won the “Best Product Demonstration” award, PM Holdings (Tech-Life and GTE brands) won “Best New Product” for their 8-pint mini keg and tap system launched under their newest brand KegSmiths, and World Tech Toys (drones) won “Best New Vendor.”
Tool Expo West finished the event with a happy hour on Saturday night where customers won a 2017 Ford F150, 2017 Harley Davidson, $10,000 Cash, an OTC Encore, Sunex Mechanic’s Dream prize package, Cruzin’ Coolers from Steelman Pro, a 72” Extreme tool box, two $3000 cash prize winners courtesy of Ingersoll Rand, two $2,000 cash prize winners courtesy of Wilton Jet, $2,500 cash prize courtesy of Power Probe, $1,000 cash prize courtesy of Lincoln/Mityvac, and three $2500 VISA gift card winners courtesy of Tool Expo West. Needless to say, with that many awesome prizes it was hard not to leave Tool Expo West energized.
ISN’s events offer world-class training, major product launches from manufacturers, best pricing all year long and an energy throughout the event that you just can’t get anywhere else. We invite you to come and leave fully motivated to grow your business.
