Last week we attended SME 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona. The Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration which has over 15,000 members from over 100 countries. The year’s SME show set a new attendance record of over 6,300 attendees.
This event is the largest annual gathering of SME members in the world. Getting together to explore technological advances, new legislation, market trends, economic changes in the industry, and new products. This year’s technical sessions focused on mining standards, innovations in mine operations, and mining and equipment reliability were informative and very well-received.
Our booth attracted well-informed attendees the entire show! Attendees who visited our booth were able to get a first-hand look at our mining truck struts, mining shovel components, wheel chocks and heavy duty pads. They were able to see the impact of our proprietary TecsPak® material and find out how TecsPak can impact their mining operations through its superior performance, lower operating costs, and design versatility. Exhibiting at a show like SME gives us the opportunity to bring our innovative products directly to the end users.
During this event we were able to connect with key members in the mining industry in a fun and relaxed environment. We had a great time at SME 2016 and we cannot wait until next year’s show in Denver, Colorado.
