Each year, Ideal Supply hosts two trade shows in Ontario, a Northern event (held in Barrie) and a Southern event in Stratford.

With a Night at the Movies theme, similar to the Barrie event in April, this year’s Stratford trade show, boasted 150 vendor displays covering automotive, industrial and electrical applications.

The Night at the Movies theme included special giveaway bags for attendees with a 1 in 5 chance of winning a Cineplex Movie Pass!

Here’s some of the highlights from this year’s event.
