“The value of BCMC is to be able to create relationships, build brand awareness, and show off the solutions you have to offer an entire industry in one location that’s completely different than their office or their shop. The atmosphere of the show fosters a sense of relaxation that allows attendees to speak honestly and openly with you. That’s what you really get at BCMC – so much information, so much direction, so much about what your customers really need.”
