The DEATH of traditional tradeshows?
When you go to a trade-show, do you ever get the feeling that you are being sold to? If you are like me, I just want to look at equipment and get more information. A tradeshow provides a chance to see a machine up close, but everyone knows that companies are really there to sell, and just about any machine looks good when new, with a factory pro running it, in a environmentally controlled carpeted showroom. With the age of social media, there may be a new way to get a realistic perspective on equipment beyond the video.
Our friend John Saunders of Saunders Machine Works, YouTube: (NYC CNC) may just be onto something a bit different. John is hosting a mini-trade-show or open house so that any of his more than 45,000 YouTube subscribers can see first hand some of the machines working that he uses daily in his videos about metalworking and machining.
John’s YouTube channel is called NYC CNC and he provides his viewers with a first hand look at some of the problems and solutions of running a small machine-shop. Attendees of his open house will get to see his equipment, making real parts in a real shop, in real time. No sales people, just technicians on hand to answer questions and to demonstrate the machines in a real working environment.
American Rotary is here in Zanesville, Ohio at John’s shop to help support his efforts and to answer any questions regarding the use of American Rotary Phase Converters which run some of John’s equipment.
As a proud sponsor of John’s Open House, we are giving away our newest phase converter, AI – American Rotary Industrial, to one lucky winner. See our Facebook page for more details!
