GAWDA 2014 Spring Management Conference – Chicago, IL

Mar. 31, 2014


The annual GAWDA Spring business meeting was held in the convention center within the Chicago Sheraton Hotel from 30 March through 1 April.  Chicago is well known for providing wonderful attendance records for the FABTECH Show and this GAWDA meeting was no exception.  

In addition to the Spring Management Meeting and business sessions, there was an opportunity on Monday afternoon where attendees could meet with over 65 different manufactures within the welding and cutting industries.  Each manufacture was able to set up in the convention center and have a contact booth where they could engage in one on one discussions with potential distributors.  It was a great time to have discussions with old friends and make some new friends as well.  

As seen in the photo, Bug-O enjoyed a booth at this event where we had on display the KBUG-1200 fillet welding machine and the KBUG-4000 “wall clinging” type of trackless carriage.  Dave Dockstader the Regional Sales Manager and Norm Sted the Director of Sales and Marketing for North America were on hand to meet customers and answer their questions.
