Pepco participated in the Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan Chapter NECA Associate Trade Show on May 26, 2016. The event centered on the theme of the 2016 NECA Convention in Boston, Massachusetts.
It was important that Pepco participate in this show as it is the premier annual event for the union contractors ( which make up about 95% of our market). All of the other local distributors are there as well as many of our primary vendors. It’s important that we get to see our customers in a more social atmosphere as well as promote our branch and the products services we can provide. By having a strong presence at this event it relays a positive image of our branch among the majority of current and potential area customers.
It was an outstanding opportunity to get primary interaction with some key decision makers from the Toledo area’s main contractors while presenting the Pepco Toledo Team in a positive way. We had a lot of individual attention for our lighting products on display as well as some of the new tools. As a result, we received several requests for small project quotes as a result of our lighting products on display. We also got contact information from new/potential customers as a result of our tool bag raffle.
