In this edition of the DH+ INSPIRE Podcast, our own Colton Stombaugh is joined by fueling industry leaders Dave Lacaille and Ed Kammerer. Dave is the Senior Director of North American Sales at Dover Fueling Solutions, and Ed is the Director of Marketing and Global Product Strategy for OPW Retail Fueling. Both veterans of fueling and convenience store solutions, Dave and Ed offer unique insights on the future of industry trade shows.
Together, our guests discuss their roles within their respective companies, expanding upon their familiarity with the trade show scene. In particular, Dave and Ed reflect on this year’s exciting return to the “Super Bowl” of industry events: the PEI-NACS Show. Delving into the differences they noticed at the exhibition and the many successes they were able to celebrate, our subject matter experts attest to the value of media coverage and online interactions. Dave and Ed conclude this episode with a comparison of in-person vs. virtual events, and the changes they anticipate at regional and large-scale trade show events in the coming months.
