CO2Meter displayed at the International Beverage Dispensing Equipment Association (IBDEA) Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. This is the annual meeting of industry professionals who supply goods and services to the restaurant industry: bulk CO2, syrups, cleaners, ice machines, and more. You name it - these guys do it all.
The conference was not only a chance to show our products, but more importantly, a chance for the CO2Meter team to listen to the professionals who interacting with owners and managers of bars and restaurants every day. In backrooms and coolers, they see what the customers’ pains are. Sharing this at the conference allows us to assess our devices and designs to validate improvements we have made and begin the process of making future improvements. The feedback we get from IBDEA members makes us a better company every year.
In addition to the trade show, the IBDEA conference offered break-out sessions with subject matter experts from across the country to train and upskill IBDEA members. One of these was on CO2 safety.
CO2Meter’s Josh Pringle joined other industry experts in a panel discussion about CO2 monitoring, local and state regulations, and current devices available in the market. The panel answered critical questions from the audience of IBDEA members.
In addition to CO2 safety, there were sessions on billing practices, changes in HR and sales tactics. We walked away with several ideas we can implement. Wait till our team sees the new training they will be going through this year!
While at the trade show booth, Josh Pringle from CO2Meter saw Chris and Heather Easton from Federal Beverage Control of Denver. Chris took over his father's business a few years ago, and has been working to grow it through improved customer service and expanded offerings. He has developed a reputation in the industry for "work smarter AND harder" to get ahead.
When Chris and his wife Heather saw CO2Meter's “Got Gas?” t-shirt they loved it. We sent them home with one for their son Graham.
Talk about great swag for a boy! You can tell by the smile how much Graham loves his new shirt.
Many thanks to Chris, Heather, and Graham for sharing their photos.
