Ripples from Rip
The winter trade shows have been positively exciting so far. Lots of old faces and some new ones too! The networking
is always rewarding, even if it's commiserating about the snow, or the lack thereof. For some
thoughts on new products and new trends, check out the article I wrote for the ELA Newsletter at
The attitude of contractors and retailers all seem to be on the positive side. And some were downright enthusiastic but most agreed that we need to go about marketing, designing and selling in a different way to be successful. Our training sessions will facilitate that changeover and I'm looking forward to the networking as we bat around new ideas. We used to call them "bull" sessions, but we won't be dishin' out any Bull!

We're proud of our selection of speakers and their topics - check out the agenda and sign up soon. All you need is one good idea to make it a profitable day and we promise there will be plenty of ideas. Bring your questions too - check out our new "mini-catalog" on Environmental Water Management Solutions - lots of new "toys" there and they tie right in to today's headlines.

Hope to see you soon.
