We’re Hitting the Road – Past and Future Trade Show Success

As a manufacturer, there’s a lot more to being successful than simply producing quality products. Of course that’s a huge aspect of it, but it’s not everything.

In order to be truly successful and provide the most value to your customers, it’s critical to get out there, interact with your industry peers, and constantly learn about the latest technology and trends. This is how a manufacturer grows and evolves.

One of the best ways to do this is by regularly attending and taking part in industry trade shows. These trade shows allow attendees and exhibitors to showcase their products, connect with current and potential clients, attend educational seminars, and learn about the direction of their industry. They’re invaluable.

At Vanguard, we place great importance on these shows. Take, for instance, the EMC Europe 2014 conference, September 1-4 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Here, at the “leading EMC Symposium in Europe,” we worked closely with EG Electronics, our Scandinavian distributor, to exhibit our EMI shielding products to thousands of attendees, while learning much about the industry in the process.

Next, on October 29-31, we’ll be taking our EMI line to Shanghai for EMC/China 2014. At “the largest EMC/EMI/Certification/Safety exhibition China,” formally known as the China International Conference & Exhibition on Electromagnetic Compatibility, we will team up with EG Electronics-Shanghai, our Chinese distributor. Over 4,500 attendees will have the opportunity to view our EMI shielding products, and we are sure it will be a great success.

Of course much of the success of both events is due to the scope and prestige of the shows themselves. However, we’re proud to know that a great part of the success lies in the products. Our EMI Shielding Gaskets and Conductive Gaskets are counted on worldwide for their virtually limitless applications and custom configurations. Clients in electronics, avionics, telecommunications, the military, automation, computers, and more rely on the advantages of Ultra-Vanshield protection.

Their myriad advantages range from lower compression force, ease of use, and weather and environmental sealing, to better aging and overall resistance, and much more. We’re excited to introduce them to more international customers, and in general, excited to continue to reap the benefits of trade show exhibiting.
