For the next few months FLAT’s leadership team, along with key sales and service staff, will be attending several very important industry trade shows around the world to help restaurant and hospitality professionals solve the issue of wobbly and misaligned tables in their businesses. This investment in supporting industry trade events is a central way FLAT is connecting with executives to help them understand the FLAT difference.
The products FLAT manufacturers, both FLAT table bases and FLAT Equalizers, are so unique in their design and performance that the best way for owners and operators to understand the potential is to see them in person. Trade show events allow our team to provide guided demonstrations on how easy it is to install and operate our table bases and FLAT Equalizers. Visitors can see with their own eyes how FLAT eliminates wobbly tables with our self-stabilizing table bases or following a gentle press on the table top of a table fitted with FLAT Equalizers. Booth attendees can also be amazed when experiencing the alignment of adjoining table tops.
Finally, these key events also give us the chance to meet with our distributors and representatives to deliver training, discuss opportunities and understand feedback from the market.
Below is a list of all the trade events that FLAT are currently scheduled to attend. If you are planning to attend any of these shows or expos, we encourage you to reach out to our team and schedule a private tour of our products and guided demonstration. The booth does become busy and congested at times, and we’d love to have scheduled appointments with those attendees for whom solving a major front of house problem is a high priority! We look forward to seeing you at these shows and are excited to show you the new innovative products we have been developing.
