SDi Participates in Trade Shows on Both the East and West Coasts
This month, SDi attended conferences on both the East Coast and the West Coasts. Over on the East Coast, Pat Ryan, Northeast Business Development Manager, and TJ Haluska, Inside Sales and Training Support, attended the New Jersey Electronic Life Safety Association’s (NJELSA) Annual Symposium on March 17th in Atlantic City, NJ. It’s always great to be back at the NJELSA Symposium and as in previous years, the show was busy! Pat and TJ had the opportunity to meet with customers not only in New Jersey, but surrounding states such as New York and Pennsylvania as well. SDi was thrilled to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day themed, “Shamrock Shuffle,” which encouraged networking and prizes for the attendees.
The conference had many educational courses for the attendees, one of which was a course on “2021/2018 IFC and 2016/2019 NFPA-72 – Fire Alarm System Inspections Test and Maintenance,” which was presented by AHJ John Drucker and showed some SDi Test and Inspection equipment in action. Some items that were addressed in this course included detection, notification, supervising stations and testing voice evacuation systems and fire safety interfaces with other building systems and required documentation. Over at the SDi booth, our electronic testers were on display, including the Solo 365 and Testifire. The Testifire 2001 that tests for smoke, heat, and CO was very popular at this show as many technicians in New Jersey need be able to test for carbon monoxide.
Over on the West Coast, Mariana Ferguson, Northwest Business Development Manager, attended the Security, Integration & Life Safety Association of the Northwest’s (SILSA NW) Annual Symposium in Bellevue, Washington. This was the first time that SDi had attended this show and we were delighted to be welcomed to a successful event. Mariana was excited to meet with customers and existing dealers located in Washington. A few customers had stopped by the SDi table, mentioning that they registered for the conference so that they could meet SDi and receive a product demo for our electronic testers, which were once again a popular product at the show.
The Symposium had excellent attendance and foot traffic with quite a few fire marshals in attendance. The show also featured many educational courses, making it a great event for everyone in attendance. SDi is proud to be a member of SILSA NW and we are looking forward to attending more events with SILSA NW.
