You are invited to represent and exhibit your line of product(s) and services at the upcoming Indy Super BLAST 2013 Trade Show in Indianapolis, Indiana on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013. The Indy Super BLAST 2013 event is expected to draw more than 600 conference participants. What an excellent opportunity to exhibit your products and to network with blind entrepreneurs!
All Randolph-Sheppard* Business Enterprise Program operators, staff, and future operators representing over $500,000,000.00 in sales, from all 50 states, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have been invited to attend this event. A very large percentage of vending equipment, access technology and food service equipment provided in support of the 3,100 Randolph-Sheppard businesses is purchased by state licensing agency management and staff. With this magnitude of participation by the operators and staff, the Indy Super BLAST Trade Show is guaranteed to be a rewarding venture for all!
Reserve your beautifully draped 8’ X 10’ booth package ($900) which includes one 6’ skirted table, two chairs, a wastebasket and a 7” X 44” company identification sign. (We may be able to accommodate special needs when necessary to exhibit equipment and/or other products.) Note: Some companies find it beneficial to take advantage of larger sponsorship packages. Interested in sponsoring? Contact Kevan Worley at 1-866-543-6808.
Testimonials from Previous BLAST Trade Show Participants
“You and your staff did a DYNAMITE job of running your convention! We will definitely be getting sales from your show. My dealer and I had people lined up 5 deep to talk with us until almost the end of the show.”
Sonja Homan, Southeast Regional Sales Manager, Humanware
“The National Association of Blind Merchants is one of the best operated organizations in the vending channel. The NABM looks to provide true business partnerships for the manufacturers. Every year the NABM, headed by Kevan Worley & Nicky Gacos, executes a hard-core sales and training conference for their members called ‘BLAST’. I have participated in this show going on 3 years and it continues to become better and stronger every year. BLAST is a great way to meet additional operators that manage both large and small government foodservice & vending facilities. In my role I rarely promote "Foodshows,” but, Kevan & Nicky have created a very valuable selling & buying network relationship between manufacturers, brokers & their operators in a very professional and positive format.”
Kevin Thompson, Nestlé Waters North America
We hope that you will exhibit at this event, as your presence at the Indy Super BLAST Trade Show will bring profit to you and your company!
