Meet and Greet a Hit in Pittsburgh
There was a full house at the Meet and Greet in Pittsburgh on May 4. Attendees had the opportunity to mingle and talk to each other, as well with representatives from the table top exhibitors. There was plenty of free food and drink to enjoy.
The event was preceded by a stain removal seminar led by A.L. Wilson’s Bob Edwards, Chris Patten and Randy Schwartzman. Exchanges between the presenters and the audience made for a lively and informative session.
We thank the exhibitors,Adco, F.H. Bonn, Fulton Boilers, Hudson Equipment, Kreussler, M & L Supply, Metro Chem, R.R. Street and A.L. Wilson, and two sponsors, Unipress and Firbmatic, for supporting the event.
Look for our next Meet and Greet at the Harrisburg Hilton on October 12.
