San Antonio Manufacturers Association’s 2nd Quarter Issue newsletter featured Cox Manufacturing’s influence on making the 2017 South Central TX Mfg Trade Show a regional success.
This year’s South Central Texas Manufacturing Trade Show & Conference was a double when you add it to last year’s successful event. Over 975 attendees attended and 145 exhibitors showed off what they make or provide to manufacturers. This success was due to changing the format from a local event to a “regional” one and making it about manufacturers.
SAMA brought in manufacturers from around the state and gave them a venue to showcase what they make. This change, based on the vision of our presenting sponsor, Bill Cox, Cox Manufacturing Company, Inc., and the leadership of Dollie Bodin, The Trade Group and Javier Garcia, JAG Professional Services, co-chairs of the trade show committee, to make the event about manufacturing. Many exhibitors and attendees rated the event as excellent! Connections and deals were made with many turning into profitable contracts. By adding a conference component for businesses to hear what it takes to be successful, it was icing on the cake - this is what it is all about!
