The Universal City Hilton’s ballroom was packed with hundreds of enthusiastic security professionals for IML Expo 2010 March 11-13. Intermountain Lock & Security Supply’s two days of classes and Saturday trade show garnered 30 percent more attendees than last year’s record crowd.
“This show is a great opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation to our customers and vendors for their support. It’s a trade show, but it’s also a celebration for people who share the same profession to get together and renew friendships,” stated Bob Steinmann, President of IMLSS. “We are thrilled to host an event that brings our industry together.”
“During my 30 plus years of international business, I have attended hundreds of trade shows of all shapes and sizes around the world. I very much enjoyed the Intermountain “get together”. Instead of the usual impersonal trudge, I had a clear sense that everybody in the hall knew everybody else (vendor and client alike) and that it was more of a celebration than a sales event. In the short time I have been with AMI, I have come to appreciate the partnership with Intermountain, the quality of their people and the great consideration they personally extend to their clients,” said Craig Rosenlund, Architectural Materials, Inc
“I got to see most of the factory reps that keep me up to date on the newest products on the market. I also loved the food and prizes that were given away. You guys really know how to throw a party. Keep up the good work,” added Mike Garretson, State of Colorado.
IMLSS has hosted this show for the past five years and enjoyed double-digit growth each year. Security professionals took advantage of the incredible “Blockbuster” deals and special show pricing offered by the over 100 manufacturers at the show. Special deals were matched only by the sizable spread of gourmet food, an IMLSS show hallmark, which has been a tradition for years.
Intermountain Lock & Security Supply hosts five such events each year across the western states, early each year in Phoenix and Los Angeles then on to Denver, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. Specific dates can be found at the company’s web Site: www.imlss.com
