“We were extremely pleased to have participated in the SAMA Trade Show. From my personal perspective I was astounded at both the quantity and quality of the show’s attendees most of which were decision makers. We obtained, minimally, 10 very high quality contacts with which we are currently engaged. Historically we participate in 10-12 trade shows every year, SAMA’s was the best, WE WILL BE BACK!!!”

Randy Holford, Sales Manager, SupplyWorks

“We became members of SAMA because of the outgoing people that attend everything from luncheons, to tradeshows to mixers. Though we are a non-manufacturing company, we have experienced a very warm reception from manufacturing members during each SAMA networking event. We exhibited this year at the SAMA tradeshow and were able to visit with over 160 booths, we made new friends and gleaned value from our SAMA membership. We will be back again every year and plan on attending multiple SAMA events because of their high quality standards and well attended gatherings.”
