"There is so much value in being able to handle products, use them, and ask specific questions while you are standing there with a rep. We were able to compare similar looking pieces of clothing on a page to feel them, see how they hung, quality, and more! It meant that we left felling like we got the best quality for the best price possible and that is passed onto our students and staff." - Micque Shoemaker, Manager. Umpqua Community College Bookstore.
The majority of exhibitors provide show specials and many have low minimum orders to accommodate smaller retailers.
