Past Exhibitors Share their Experiences
We were extremely pleased to have participated in the SAMA Trade Show. From my personal perspective, I was astounded at both the quantity and quality of the show’s attendees most of which were decision makers. We obtained, minimally, 10 very high-quality contacts with which we are currently engaged. Historically we participate in 10-12 trade shows every year, SAMA’s was the best, WE WILL BE BACK!!!
