MADE IN FLORIDA EVENT GENERATED POSITIVE BUZZ
Mid-Florida Manufacturers Association’s fifth annual Vendor Fair featured 33 local exhibitors, keenly interested foot traffic and a lot of enthusiasm about Ocala’s nationally-ranked projected job growth rate.
“It was great to showcase our business products to other interested parties” one of the vendors stated. “Things are definitely getting better. ”
All in all, participants felt that the showcase was a success. Not only did exhibitors score myriad business contacts, he said, but foot traffic included purchasing agents, production managers, as well as human resource personnel from public and for-profit entities.
“The feedback I got from exhibitors is that many of them got good contacts that they wouldn’t have from the big shows like in Orlando when they just get lost in the crowd.”
