2014 Exhibitors Sound Off

Rich Williams, product specialist for Felder Group USA of New Castle, DE, explained why his company plans to take out a bigger footprint at the 2015 Cabinets & Closets Expo. “Felder Group enjoyed great success exhibiting at both the 2013 and 2014 Cabinets & Closets Expos,” Williams said. “Both shows generated many high-quality leads, some of which turned into machinery sales that more than paid for our participation. We look forward to having an even bigger presence at the 2015 show.”

Michael Sparks, growth development manager of Improvit! 360 of Columbus, OH, exhibited at the expo for the first time this year. He said, “This was probably some of the best pre-show marketing we’ve experienced at any show. People knew who we were when they came to our booth.”

Stiles Machinery, of Grand Rapids, MI, has exhibited at every Closets Expo since 2006, and will be back in 2015. “From its inception, Stiles Machinery has embraced our participation in the Cabinets & Closets Expo,” said Steve Waltman, VP of marketing and communications. “We’re excited to see it return to the Midwest. The opportunity to meet professionals from this exciting market segment has always been a personal highlight and a commercial success. We look forward to exhibiting next spring in Schaumburg for the 2015 expo.”
