On March 17-18, Integrated Supply Network (ISN) hosted hundreds of customers at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas for Tool Expo West. Manufacturers launched new products, customers took advantage of deals, cash back and won incredible prizes like a 2017 Ford F150 and a Harley Davidson. Tool Expo West gave away more than $1 million in cash and prizes.
As one of the largest national tool and equipment distributors, ISN hosts one of the nation’s largest tool and equipment distribution tradeshows in the industry. ISN is known for the Tool Dealer Expo, a national tool and equipment tradeshow held each June in Orlando. Three years ago, the company launched Tool Expo West taking place in March on the West coast, first in Phoenix, and this year moved it to Las Vegas. Tool Dealer Expo and now Tool Expo West continue to grow in attendance and offer bigger prizes every year, according to ISN.
Tool Expo West featured more than 90,000 SKUs from more than 150 vendors and hosted training events by Power Probe, Ingersoll Rand, Bosch, Can Do, Wilton Jet, Associated Equipment and Sunex. Milwaukee launched its new tool storage line at Tool Expo West and several brand new vendors introduced their products at the show as well: Cojali (diagnostic equipment), ShopSol (creepers and seats), Suncast (disposal equipment), Spin Secure (dash cams), World Tech Toys (drones) and Hofmann Megaplan (tire service equipment).
Ingersoll Rand brought the energy in their booth with big cash giveaways, product demos and an Irish dance performance. This helped Ingersoll Rand to take home the vendor award for “Most Spirit.” Vampire Tools won the “Best Product Demonstration” award, PM Holdings (Tech-Life and GTE brands) won “Best New Product” for its 8-pint mini keg and tap system launched under their newest brand KegSmiths, and World Tech Toys (drones) won “Best New Vendor.”
Tool Expo West finished the event with a happy hour on Saturday night, where customers won a 2017 Ford F150, 2017 Harley Davidson, $10,000 cash, an OTC Encore, Sunex Mechanic’s Dream prize package, Cruzin’ Coolers from Steelman Pro, a 72-inch Extreme tool box, two $3,000 cash prize winners courtesy of Ingersoll Rand, two $2,000 cash prize winners courtesy of Wilton Jet, $2,500 cash prize courtesy of Power Probe, $1,000 cash prize courtesy of Lincoln/Mityvac, and three $2,500 VISA gift card winners courtesy of Tool Expo West.
ISN’s events offer world-class training, major product launches from manufacturers and best pricing all year long.
