"I was speechless when Rob Gutierrez, NTEA director of tradeshows and events, stopped by to tell us that we'd won the Editors' Choice Award. Seeing our customers' enthusiasm for the products in our booth is awesome, and receiving this added recognition from our industry validates all the hard work and effort we've put into our new products.
