This past week, Altec AIR was pleased to be attending and exhibiting at the Compressed Air Best Practices EXPO 2021. This year, the CABP EXPO was held at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel, from November 2nd - 4th.
We were really excited to get back to the EXPO in 2021, which was our first return to the CABP EXPO since we attended back in 2019, pre-Covid-19. Although we only missed the one year (2020), it sure seemed like a long time.
Aside from our excitement to be able to 'get out there' again, we were even more delighted to be able to participate in an event that let us get in front of our Customers and Partners again, face-to-face. While phone calls and video chats served us well throughout 2020, getting to speak with so many people in person was such an anticipated and welcome experience. It was great to see so many new and familiar faces alike.
We all enjoyed and embraced each opportunity to talk to many Customers, Distributors, Attendees, and other Vendor Exhibitors, and took every opportunity to do so. We met so many great people, not only in our booth, but also walking around the EXPO, attending the meetings, hosting & attending dinners, and even seeing fellow EXPO participants in the elevators, we had great conversations, made quality connections, and took a lot away from our time there.
Altec AIR had an extended Team participating in the EXPO this year, which included many from our Engineering Group, who attended a great number of the educational sessions. In all, we were (pictured from left to right) Kevin Hoerr, Bob McKay, Stuart Disberger, Tom Brennan, Joe Rodenbucher, John Taylor, Chris Foster, Jim DiMaiolo and myself, Robert Ruskaup (not pictured). We hope that we had a chance to say 'Hi' and meet everyone else who attended.
All-in-all, it was a wonderful opportunity and a rewarding experience for Altec AIR. We would like to Thank Compressed Air Best Practices and all of our Customers & Partners that we got to spend time with. That is really why we do all of this. Thank You!
Looking forward to seeing you all again next year at CABP EXPO 2022 in Atlanta, GA...
