July 18, 2018
More than 2,500 attendees learned about new products and took advantage of expo-exclusive deals from some of the participating vendors.

Integrated Supply Network's (ISN) 16th annual Tool Dealer Expo took place at the Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Resort and Spa in Orlando, Florida, June 29 and 30. More than 2,500 attendees learned about new products from some of the 170-plus vendors that partnered with ISN. Distributors were also able to take advantage of expo-exclusive deals from participating vendors.

In addition to new products and special pricing, attendees were also able to take part in training seminars to increase knowledge in areas such as better business leadership practices, sales training and empowering women. These ISN-hosted panels were tailored to mobile tool distributors and parts stores, delivering information designed to grow each attendee’s business. They covered topics that directly impact these businesses, best practices and sharing amongst peers. ISN vendor partners brought in instructors to train and update customers on the latest diagnostics, marketing, sales and business development strategies.

During the show, ISN and select vendors gave away raffle prizes. Attending customers could win a 2018 Dodge Ram, his and her series 3 Apple watches, golf sets, designer bags and a MacBook. Additionally, Ingersoll Rand offered a chance to win 2019 NCAA final four basketball tickets, DeWalt sponsored a Jeep Wrangler, JPW raffled off a Dodge Challenger and Chicago Pneumatic gave away a maxed-out golf cart.

After the show ended on Saturday, attendees and their families were invited to attend the last event of the weekend, the Tool Dealer Expo Havana Nights themed farewell banquet. Guests were served Cuban-inspired cuisine and live entertainment was provided. The evening was hosted by ISN COO, Jon Snowden. During the event, awards were given to suppliers whose sales achievements, creativity and engagement during the show set them apart.
