Bobbi and Jen of Kopp Drug: "Once again, your staff was exceptional, friendly, professional and was able to answer any questions we had."
Arlen of Mutual Wholesale Drug: "With this being my first trade show with CDMA I really had a nice time. Everyone from your company did a great job of putting together a first Class event. Being involved with putting an event together I know the amount of hard work it takes to make sure everything goes smoothly so first let me say thank you to staff at CDMA and also the staff from the Gaylord. From the time I arrived to the time I departed I was treated very well. I also enjoyed getting the chance to meet with all the vendors that CDMA deals with and getting to know more about all the different items currently in the mix and looking forward to many new things coming down the road. The items that Mutual stocks from CDMA are very important to our customers and I look forward to adding more items and growing the business for us all in the coming year.
Art of Modular Thermal Technologies, Inc: "I found this year's trade show to be very productive and enjoyable - as always. This year in particular it seemed like the retailers and wholesalers were more excited about finding new business opportunities and products that would enhance their sales and profits. We all know this is the main purpose for their participation in trade shows but somehow the CDMA shows have a little something special that many of the other industry events do not have. In trying to define what that something special is, the world "Friendliness" kept coming to mind. Your team as always are great CDMA ambassadors to the attendees. The retailers and wholesalers enjoy themselves and share their feelings and ideas with the vendors. Even the exhibitors are open to share their space. They help each other with information and support.
As a senior member of the industry and the association I do what I do because this is the career I have chosen for myself and has been very good to me. Even after all these years I still have fun every day! In return I try to give back to being a mentor to all of the newer people that enter our industry (including manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers and trade association people.) After much thought I finally figured what sets your trade show apart, it is the friendly atmosphere that you and your team have created and live by.
From this point on I am defining the CDMA Trade Show as the "Friendliest" Trade Show in the industry to anyone that asks me about your trade show..."

Mike Thomas of Pace Shave: "We found the members at the show to be very attentive to learning about the items we supply in the QC program. The member meetings are productive for working towards filling is distribution gaps, promoting new items and discussion on how displays can drive extra sales and profit.”
