A Day in the Life at ConExpo

Two weeks ago, we took an in depth look into trade shows and why they are so important to the growth and development of Shrink It.  This week, we will divulge into our reasons for exhibiting at ConExpo; one of the recent shows that Shrink It participated in.  We will also receive some insight from Ryan Polcyn, who was Shrink It’s rep at the show, and share his thoughts about the show and the impact it had for Shrink It.

ConExpo 2011 was held in Las Vegas, NV at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  This five day event had over 120,000 industry professional attendees and housed over 2,400 exhibitors.  Featuring everything imaginable when it comes to the construction and agricultural industries, ConExpo showcased the latest equipment, technologies, products, and services; and Shrink It was glad to be in the thick of this giant event.

Most people relate Shrink It and our shrink wrapping products mainly with the boating and marine industry, however, shrink wrap is becoming an industry standard in the construction and agriculture fields as well.  From large industrial equipment, to scaffolding and containment, to entire buildings; shrink wrap is making its mark on the industry and is becoming more prominent every day.  Ryan gave us some great insight into Shrink It’s role at ConExpo and explained how our company is bringing more awareness and knowledge of shrink wrapping to industry professionals at these types of shows.

“We got the chance to demonstrate our whole shrink wrap system and how shrink wrap is used to protect equipment for transport, storage, and even for scaffolding projects.”  Throughout the five day event, Ryan had many opportunities to interact with all sorts of different people—when asked what his favorite part about going to shows was he said, “Meeting new clients, mingling with people and helping them with questions on the shrink wrapping process, and discovering new avenues for people to use this cost-effective solution for their products and jobs.”  He continued, “There are always going to be new uses for shrink wrap in one way or another and going to shows like ConExpo is a great way to explore those possibilities.”

Even though ConExpo is held only once every three years, Shrink It made an impact with our presence this year.  Ryan shared his thoughts on how the show went overall stating, “The show was definitely a success, we had a lot of good interest.  It’s really neat to work with people on the construction side of things and understand and learn how we can best help and serve them.”  If you have any questions about how shrink wrap can be used in the construction or agriculture industries, please don’t hesitate to call Shrink It at 800-968-5147 or email us at drshrink@shrinkit-inc.com.
