Milwaukee Tools 2022 Pipeline event
One of the best parts about the world starting to open up again after locking down is the return of in-person events. At the 2022 Milwaukee Tool Pipeline event, social media influencers and tradespeople were invited to get their hands on the latest product offerings at their flagship Milwaukee, Wisconsin head office. A team of Canadian tradespeople and media personnel attended the event from June 27-29.
Over the three days, attendees were able to test some of the latest products, which were broken down into three categories of products —drilling and driving, carpentry and remodelling, and automotive.
After receiving demonstrations on how to use each new product by a Milwaukee Tools team member, everyone was able to test out the products themselves. The room was filled with social media influencers testing out the latest drill, rachet, or power saw, all while taking videos of the process for their many followers. At the end of the demonstration period, members of Milwaukee’s executive team gave a presentation on the direction of the company, which was followed by a question-and-answer period with attendees.
A tour of the company’s head office was also given, where attendees were able to see how the company’s battery technology is developed, how prototypes are created and test out their virtual reality system on product concepts.
Wolseley ONE Show
Wolseley held its annual Wolseley ONE trade show at the Universal Event Space in Toronto on June 8.
The show ran from 2 p.m. till 7 p.m. and offered attendees the ability to network, test the latest products, and participate in live technical training.
Some of the available sessions included “Design Envelope Compass R: ECM Circulators for Multiple Applications with Armstrong” by Peter Wolff, global manager of ecosystems and performance upgrades at Armstrong Fluid Technology, “Pro Plumbing and Mechanical Core Trades Tools Training” by Brett Lewis and Gurjot Sahni, strategic account managers with Milwaukee, and “System 636 Flue Gas Training and Certification” by Doug Purdy, technical sales representative with IPEX.
On the show floor, there were more than 60 exhibitors for attendees to interact with and learn from. The next Wolseley ONE event will be held at the Sheraton Laval in Quebec on Nov. 1.
