If you got an opportunity to visit the IAP booth at Hospitality Design Las Vegas thank you! If you don't know what HD Las Vegas is, it was from April 30th to May 2nd and is the largest single destination for hospitality product discovery in the US, HD Expo and Conference is cutomer-driven and industry led, with the goals and needs of the industry guiding everything from programming to floor plans to networking events. There are over 600 product suppliers spanning 25 categories that can fulfill the entire scope of a project. It's an industry launchpad for new product introductions and groundbreaking debuts.
IAP has been exhibiting at HD since 1992 and we often launch our newest products at the show, this year we introduced our newest trash containers Titan and Phoenix (soon to be introduced on the site). It was a great show and we look enjoyed seeing our clients and industry partners. These days most of business is done online but we often forget how important it is to meet one another and see products in person. There are so many qualities that can not be conveyed in an image, can't tell you how many times clients told me how happy they were to see and touch the products to understand the value that IAP offers. We take great pain to build a quality product and not cut corners so when the clients are so happy it makes us happy.
If you have been on the fence about attending HD or any show for that matter, I think it is important to take the time and expense to at least go to one key show a year and see things in person. It is also very helpful to meet who is behind the phone or email so you know and trust who you are working with. We love meeting you and look forward to seeing you at the next one :)
