ABMA Convention Scottsdale, AZ / USA
The Perlon® team was present at the 101st Annual ABMA (American Brush hManufacturers Association) Convention, held at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. A year on from the 100th Anniversary Convention held in Orlando in March 2017, this convention was back to its usual size, but nevertheless attended by 235 delegates and partners. The convention was the usual mix of educational sessions, divisional meetings and working groups, and the main event for us as a supplier to the industry, the Friday morning suppliers display. Guest speakers covered subjects ranging from data driven marketing, to demographics, to the changing face and age of our workforce.
The convention gave us the opportunity to meet with many existing US customers, as well as a few visiting European customers and to keep up to date with the trends affecting the brush industry in the United States.
