AMSTERDAM — Hill & Markes, a 115-year-old wholesale distributor, hosted a Facility & Equipment Expo on May 14 at the Hill & Markes facility in Amsterdam.
Hill & Markes had to cut off registration prior to the event due to high customer engagement in the show. Returning face-to-face, the show featured industry leaders and cutting-edge technology that keeps facilities clean, safe, and healthy.
“Our expo was a huge success, the atmosphere, presentations, interaction, weather – just a tremendous day to welcome back our vendors and customers. We did it safely and it was well received by all,” said Joe Waite, Vice President of Sales at Hill & Markes, in a news release
The Facility & Equipment Expo was a fantastic opportunity for facility managers to take advantage of face-to-face interaction with manufacturers for the first time in a long time. This expo will help facilities update and enhance their cleaning procedures to ensure safety and efficiency.
Three presentations on the future of cleaning and restroom management from industry experts – Georgia Pacific, ISSA, and Kimberly-Clark were well attended. The Hill & Markes Equipment Service Team also provided a variety of equipment demonstrations, including a Tennant robotic floor scrubber, throughout the day.
“The Hill & Markes Equipment Expo was a massive success as one of the first live events within our industry held in New York. Bringing industry experts together with Hill & Markes customers in person for the first time in nearly a year brought so much joy and comfort to the attendees that desire immediate solutions to the world we live in today,” said Brant Insero, ISSA Director of Education, Training, Certification & Standards, in the release. “There will undoubtedly be significant lasting value to the customers of Hill & Markes that attended the event. I sincerely hope that those individuals who couldn’t attend will join Hill & Markes for future events being led by their new Hill & Markes Institute.”
