What can you say about a trade show? They all have their high spots and low spots, but really are just a marketing exercise for everyone involved. CarFixWorld wasn’t really all that different, except they did have a few show cars mixed in which brightened thing up a bit.
For the potential apprentice, every possible training organization was in attendance, from the Ministry, to independant schools. If you want to find a way into the trade, this is the place to be. for the shop owner who is looking to upgrade, all the big players in shop equipment were there. In addition to Bear and Hofmann, there were a bunch of new up and commers hawking their new shop tools, lifts and such.
The show continues tomorrow, from 10-5 at the Direct Energy Center, which used to be the National Trade Center at the CNE grounds.
