EORA Hosts Successful February Show


Morale was high in Greenville, SC

Asheville, NC — Right on the heels of the big OR and SIA shows, EORA hosted a well-attended three-day show at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, South Carolina.
The February show attracted over 650 buyers to preview over 600 different product lines with a mix of winter and outdoor products—everything from skis and helmets to accessories, lifestyle and stand-up paddleboards. Over 95% of exhibitors were EORA members, with a small percentage taking advantage of the EORA Intro Rep Offer. There was exceptional participation from the Southeastern states.
The Greenville show was also the first to include EORA’s 2016 show sponsors. This exciting new program offers show passes, a half page ad in all ten show programs, a product display at the entrance to each show and logos on eora.org as well as in company newsletters.
The next EORA shows will be held in NJ, SC, NH and FL in mid to late June. For more information, visit www.eora.org.
