Ah yes – another escape from the arctic cold we are used to in Western NY! Truth be told, it has been a milder winter here in the greater Buffalo, NY area up to now, but still – it was nice to get away down south for a road show in January. Last week we kicked off our winter 2017 trade show season with a visit to Austin, TX for the 2017 Texas Hospital Association’s Annual Conference and Expo. And even though the temperature was in the 50s for most of the week in Austin, it still felt better than the 30s we had in upstate NY.
This was our first time exhibiting at the premier THA (Texas Hospital Association) event. From THA’s website, the Association represents more than 85 percent of the state’s acute-care hospitals and health care systems. This event presented a great opportunity for us to introduce our SR Medical Scales to the executive leaders at many of the member hospitals.
We took our “Trade Show in A Box” display which allows us to demonstrate several of our more popular medical scales to the attendees. For this event, we demonstrated a cross-section of our medical scales, starting with our ultra-wide Patient Floor Scale, the SR411i. Next we had available our newly launched SR585i Stand-on Scale. This scale, which features a wide base, 1,000 lb capacity, and easy-to-grip wrap around handles, is gaining in popularity at hospitals around the country for gathering weight data where patients need to grasp a handrail for support. Centering our booth display is the very popular mid-sized wall mount stretcher scale, the SR7010i.
Beyond our medical scales, we will be attending a variety of events this winter that also include our other markets, that of veterinarian and waterparks. You can see our winter show schedule below as well as on our Events webpage. We hope to see you there!
