Ideal expanded trade show this year was a success, the company announced.

Ideal Trade Show

 Ideal Supply said they had a record number of visitors at their 20th Annual Trade Show, held at two locations, in Stratford, ON. and Orillia, ON. 

The move to add another location was in effort to better accomodate their northern Ontario customers, the company said. “We understood that it was a long day for our northern customers to travel to Stratford, so to make it easier for them, it was decided to run a trade show in their backyard.  Both locations are outstanding venues to demonstrate to our customers the leading edge technology, products and services that we offer”, said John MacDonald, Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

Visitors had the opportunity to visit over 220 booths, and win in excess of $100,000 in prizes, including tickets to anywhere Air Canada flies in Canada and a Kleen-Flo ATV. Rod Crich of Sepoy Wiring in Lucknow won the Air Canada tickets, and Ed Jagt of Pro-Tech in Barrie the Kleen-Flo ATV.

“We would like to thank the hundreds of customers that attended the show, and hope they will come again next year,” stated Mr. MacDonald.
