  • "I thought it was very beneficial for us to attend the show. Overall for the first year I thought it was a success."
    Charles Piekenbrock
    Vice President Strategic Sourcing, Flexsteel Industries, Inc.
  • “We actually saw some things that excited us very much in the auto cutting exhibits. Saw a 3D Cad program that was very impressive and now we are actually looking at making a purchase in that area.”

  • “We’ve seen some new people we hadn’t seen before, we’d come back, and it may make sense to bring some folks from the textiles and manufacturing side of our business as well.”
  • “We wanted to come and talk to the people we do business with here as well as see if there are other people we should be doing business with. This is a positive market and one that’s needed since the others like it have gone away.”
