ANAHEIM, Calif. – NTP-STAG's two-day Expo show at the Anaheim Convention Center was bustling with activity. Final attendee numbers for the Jan. 30-31 show weren't immediately available, but all indications were that attendance was up mea- surably based upon the fact that pre-regis- trations increased about 10 percent from the previous year's event in New Orleans, according to Bill Rogers, vice president and general manager for Keystone/ NTP-STAG. NTP-STAG doesn't disclose vendor sales numbers, but Rogers offered, "We do expect sales to be up." For their part, vendors reported they were very happy with dealer foot traffic and the number of orders placed. "Show traffic was excellent and the energy on the floor began with the dealers rushing through the doors to the applause of the NTP staff," said Bob Brammer, president of Stromberg Carlson. "For the next four hours (of the first show day), it was pretty tough to move around the booth since dealers were two and three deep at times to hear about new products. In short, it was time well spent and it appears another great year is in store for the RV industry." Piar Adams, vice president of marketing, aftermarket and international sales for Airxcel, echoed Brammer's comments. "I think that for all of Airxcel and its asso- ciated brands it was a great show. Foot traffic was brisk and the attitude of dealers was very positive," he said. 40 • RV PRO • March 2017 rv-pro.com Show Coverage The NTP-STAG show records strong dealer attendance, a doubling of participation in training sessions.
