AHR Crowd at Ideal Tape Trade Show Booth 2017 A crowd gathers at the Ideal Tape booth to see the slot machine in action.

Last week, the Ideal Tape team unveiled our brand new booth at the 2017 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) in fabulous downtown Las Vegas. Held in the grand Las Vegas Convention Center, the show was set to host nearly 2,000 exhibitors and attract a crowd of approximately 60,000 industry professionals from all over the world.

Each year, the AHR Expo presents an excellent opportunity for industry professionals to share new products, technologies, and ideas - and this year did not disappoint. We had a great time connecting with customers and colleagues, and spending time with some of the most innovative and forward-thinking professionals the industry has to offer.

To generate some good luck inside our new booth, we brought our very own Ideal Tape slot machine, along with a wealth of prizes to help our visitors keep cool. Each of our lucky visitors walked away with either one of four giveaway prizes, or raffle tickets for a chance to win a special YETI prize. Towards the end of each day, we raffled off one YETI prize to the three winners pictured below. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the drawing, and all those who stopped by our booth to try their luck!
