The sold-out show last week marks the event’s 30th anniversary that celebrated with records for attendance, training and exhibitors
Overland Park, Kan.—This year’s VISION Hi-Tech Training & Expo last week set new attendance records, including a record number of first-time attendees and more than 32,800 hours of training attended over three-and-a-half days. The event also marked its 30th anniversary.
“We had a sold-out tradeshow floor and many sold-out training sessions,” said Sheri Hamilton, executive director of the Midwest Auto Care Alliance (MWACA), which owns the event. “I am continually amazed and humbled at the time and financial commitment that many businesses make to attend VISION, as either an attendee or exhibitor. Thank you for entrusting us with your investment and you have my promise that this is always front of mind when our team is planning so that your team has an amazing, memorable, and valuable experience.”
Hamilton also recognized VISION Co-Chairs Jerry Holcom and Alan Quackenbush, the numerous MWACA leaders, members, spouses and volunteers, who all made the event a success, including the MWACA team, site event host and hotels and everyone else that made it possible.
