FINALLY! One of our favorite things about our work here at Safety Hoist Company is the industry events we get to attend. Going to trade shows and meeting hundreds of other industry professionals is truly one of our favorite parts of the job. Being unable to gather at these events in the past year due to COVID-19 has been tough- we missed the handshakes, the chats and the post show beer with new friends. When RCAT announced that their annual Texas Roofing Conference would be held in person this June, we booked our flights, packed our bags and headed down south! Since the 2021 Texas Roofing Conference was the first show we had the opportunity to attend post-COVID, expectations were high. Our team arrived at the JW Marriott in San Antonio Texas on Wednesday and brushed the dust off of our trade show display. We excitedly set up our electric and gas material hoists and prepped for the opening of the show at 1 PM on Thursday. When the show doors officially opened, we were flooded with new and familiar faces, all just excited as we were to be among our peers again. We met roofers, solar installers, contractors, masons and everyone in between. We showed off our gas and electric hoists as well as our Solar Panel Cradle and Deck Extender accessories. We even got the chance to introduce our newest patent pending accessory- The Hoist Standoff. Although it was a short show, it was jam packed with activity. It is safe to say that the 2021 Texas Roofing Conference definitely exceeded our expectations. Our team had an absolute blast showing off our product line and meeting with old and new friends. From all of us here at Safety Hoist Company, we want to thank everyone that showed up and supported our company during this event. We can’t wait for next year!
