(Updated May 25, 2012) May 24, 2012 – Ideal Supply hosted its annual tradeshow May 9-10 at the Stratford Rotary Complex in Ontario. This year’s event featured 170 booths and hosted over 1600 customers. Some of the show’s highlight included: autograph session with Ron Capps, the NAPA NHRA driver; Shell-sponsored Ferrari F1 race car; Sylvania displayed their Academy Award Oscar for Display Optic HMI Light; and the casino theme, where one lucky customer won a trip for two to Sin City.

“We are always very excited when we have the opportunity to showcase our valued vendor partners to our customers from all 30 branch locations,” said John MacDonald, Ideal Supply’s VP sales & marketing. “Another aspect of the show is that everyone enjoys a complimentary meal [where] all donations collected are donated to a worthy cause. This year’s proceeds amounted to $3000, and went to a wonderful cause: High Fives for Kids.”

This was Ideal Supply’s 18th annual tradeshow and, according to the company, support continues to grow each year. (Photos courtesy Ideal Supply).
