Equipment Marketers 'Swing into Savings' is a Hit!

Baseball-themed Trade Show scores a home run for attendees

CHERRY HILL, New Jersey (May 10, 2012) – Equipment Marketers held their 19th annual Spring Service Seminar and Trade Show on Thursday, May 3rd. This year's theme was 'Swing into Savings' and everything from Equipment Marketers T-shirts to the food and promotions going on that day were reminiscent of the ballpark.

With over 25 vendors of commercial laundry products and accessories, attendees had a lot to see. And attendees who visited every vendor booth and received a hole-punch in their 'Run the Bases' vendor card, were entered to win a Maytag® neon sign. Both attendees vendors commented how great this new promotion was in getting everyone mingling.

Equipment Marketers attracted attendees from over 300 miles away in Western Pennsylvania with incentives like a free overnight stay and gas reimbursement to attend the Trade Show. Additionally, Equipment Marketers honored two customers from the Pittsburgh, PA area with banners for their store windows advertising 'New Maytag Equipment' who had recently re-equipped several of their stores.

Registered attendees not only attended the Service Seminar on Maytag Commercial Laundry products, taught by Maytag's Rick Trama, they were also offered five other seminars. These included the Coin Laundry Association's presentation on 'Trends in Self-Service Laundry' and a presentation by an Equipment Marketers' customer on starting up and efficiently running a Wash, Dry and Fold business

Lucky attendees were given the opportunity to win two Maytag Commercial high-efficiency washers along with dozens of other prizes throughout the day. A surprise guest, the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, was on hand to help give away a high-efficiency washer and ran around Equipment Marketers entertaining the crowd with crazy antics, like demonstrating how large a load of wash can fit into a Maytag multi-load washer by climbing in himself!
