We've mentioned before how much we value the trade shows put on by Canon Communications. They do a great job of bundling multiple related shows so customers can see a wide variety of vendors in one place.
Chris Round was recently interviewed by a reporter for a story in the Los Angeles Business Journal about Canon. A few of his quotes were sprinkled throughout the story:
"Canon does a really good job bundling shows," said Chris Round, marketing manager at Cincinnati conveyor belt maker QC Industries, which exhibits at four Canon shows. "For people to get (a) clear understanding of this complex equipment, there's no better place than a trade show…"
"Yes, trade shows are pricey," said Round the conveyor belt salesman. "But from that show in Anaheim I got 200 qualified leads, meaning people who plan to buy conveyor belts in the next six months. So the value is extremely high — I cherish every show."
