Sept 17, 2019

EIN IMARK logo 400During the recently held IMARK Canada 2019 meeting in Niagara Falls, executives from 14 of the leading manufacturers in the Canadian electrical and lighting industry participated in the IMARK Canada Product Stampede on September 13th.

Distributor member executives then rated each supplier based on the quality of the presentation and the perceived sales potential of the product being demonstrated.

According to Steve Ruane, IMARK Canada Vice President of Marketing, “All of the supplier presenters did an excellent job and our members picked up a lot of valuable information in a very short amount time.”
