RIDGID roadshow unveils schedule

ELYRIA, OHIO — The RIDGID Reputation Roadshow 2008 will visit cities across the country this summer to showcase and demonstrate the newest technology RIDGID has to offer.

At each show, trade professionals can experience the industry’s latest innovations in the RIDGID product line — highlights include visual inspection, utility location, drain maintenance and pressing technology. Attendees also will be able to participate in interactive demonstrations of products, earn RIDGID gear and ask RIDGID experts about any product. Additionally at most locations, participants can meet a RIDGID calendar model and stay for lunch.

“The Reputation Roadshow’s goal is to continue our commitment of working together with tradesmen and distributors to help build the reputation of our proud industry,” said Wyatt Kilmartin, director, RIDGID branding. “These shows not only help professionals get a better understanding of our products and the latest technology, but also allow us to talk one on one with our core customers. We talk about their specific job needs and what types of products and features would ultimately enable them to do their jobs better and more efficiently.”

The Roadshow team is stopping at distributors and trade schools in Louisville (June 11), Las Vegas (June 18), Baltimore (June 26), Wilmington, Del. (July 10), Philadelphia (July 11), Orefield, Pa. (July 16), Reading, Pa. (July 17), Springfield, N.J. (July 24), Ann Arbor, Mich. (week of Aug. 11), San Francisco (Aug. 20) and Pittsburgh (Sept. 10–11). Dates are subject to change.
