Well, you probably heard that we’re just back from the SIGEP Gelato, and the¬†A.B. TECH EXPO Bakery shows in Europe; and you might be joining us¬†at the NAFEM show in Orlando next week.¬†¬†How about the IRFSNY show at Javits also next month?

Clearly it is show time again!  To get the most out of these events, a little planning (and a lot of execution) is called for.

  • Make and keep appointments
  • Develop an agenda
  • Download the show apps prior to arrival
  • Build in down-time; hydrate

There’s lots to see and lots to do & we look forward to sharing it all with you.

See you on a convention floor soon…


 

Make your lunch reservations now for our Combi Restaurant, THIRTYFIVE NORTH in the Blodgett booth during NAFEM.  

Great food, comfortable setting, 35 minutes, and a little information on our Combis. 

Then, on Friday, join us in the booth for a cocktail party in the final hour of the show, before you head out for the evening.


The master distributor for Blendtec, Lancer will have Blendtec Products exhibited in their booth #3435, including new items: Stealth 885, Stealth 895; & Nitro NBS.

Blendtec will also be in booth  #2268 demonstrating these great new products.


Hatco University school still has openings in August, September & October, but are filling up fast! The July 12 Р15, 2017 school is full and closed out.


Joe & Ed visit the Clabo factory in Italy.

In addition, the candidate¬†acquires an international network of colleagues from many industries. Graduates earn the right to use the distinctive CPMR¬ģ designation and gain membership to MRERF‚Äôs Institute for Professional Advancement (IPA).

Pecinka Ferri is proud to now have a total of three of our associates certified!
