The numbers are in and organizers have deemed the Baystate Pool Supplies’ 2015 Opportunity Days Exhibitor Show a big success. The 16th annual event attracted more than 800 attendees, including builders, service technicians and retailers, to two locations — the Northeast show at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and the Mid-Atlantic show at the Valley Forge Casino in Pennsylvania.
More than 100 manufacturers sent key personnel to staff their booths to discuss new and current products, technologies and skills; 21 also put on educational seminars that counted toward APSP credits.
Giveaways of products ($60,000 worth) and cash ($10,000) went to more than 100 dealers. Baystate is based in Cambridge, Mass.
