Trade shows are an integral part of our sales and marketing strategy, providing crucial opportunities to develop new and old customer relationships. So far this spring, we have attended the WASB Wisconsin State Education Convention, the WASBO Facilities Management Conference, and the PFMA Expo.
But we’re not done, yet! We will attend the following events in April and May. These trade show booths will each feature long-standing products and services in addition to new innovations and offerings. Qualified personnel will staff every booth to answer questions and showcase LaForce capabilities. We hope to see many new and familiar faces at each event!
