WCQI Wrap-Up – Thank You!

UntitledWe’ve just returned from the World Conference on Quality and Improvement and find ourselves already planning for 2016 in Milwaukee!

We’ve attended the conference for many years but have only exhibited since 2013.  This year, the event was held at The Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, TN and word on the street is that ASQ had record attendance with ~3,000 quality professionals.

One thing that’s unique to this conference is the sense of community and strength in the pursuit of the mission to make a difference in the world through quality.  We find ourselves right at home among clients, partners and friends.

Pro QC’s General Manager, Thomas Kaiser, visited from Germany and Michael Mago attended as  a representative of E-D-S International.  Communications Director Jennifer Stepniowski attended from Tampa, FL and had an opportunity to present in one of the sessions Monday afternoon.  She continues to be active in the organization and is working on a second certification as a CQA later this year.

Over the last few days, we have enjoyed the opportunity to learn and connect with people in a variety of industries.  We are looking forward to following up! Next up on our schedule is TexWorld in NYC from July 21st through the 23rd. We are attending to stay up-to-date in the industry and evaluate for exhibition next year. Our team in Asia will return to Hong Kong as an exhibitor at the Global Sources show in October. Also in October, Jennifer will have an opporutnity to participate in a Social Responsibility panel at ASQ’s Joint Technical Communities Conference.  And, she will return as a speaker at ASQ’s Annual Service Conference in September. In November, we’ll attend MedTech World in Orlando. There’s no doubt we value the face-to-face opportunity that exhibitions and conferences offer…  Come see us!

Global Sources Electronics & Components in Miami

Last week marked the second year Global Sources hosted a show in Miami, Florida and the first that Pro QC  exhibited at this location.  Nestled in the retro Miami Beach scene, the traffic this year was steady.

Jennifer Stepniowski, Special Projects Manager, and Jeffrey Moellering, Sales & Marketing Director, met with several entrepreneurs seeking opportunities in the Asian market, in addition to the larger organizations seeking to expand operations.  There was no shortage of vendors, ranging from various clothing to LAN cable.  Presentations conducted that Tuesday educated buyers regarding the basics of sourcing abroad and the necessity of quality assurance within that process.

Our team will be returning to the Global Sources Electronics & Components show October 12th through the 15th.  Join us in Hong Kong! Account managers can also assist with arranging itineraries and translators if you’re new to this area.

 

Global Sources China & India Sourcing Fair (Dubai)

Bruno Singier, Pro QC’s Marketing Manager for Europe and Asia, and Ruei Chen travelled to Dubai earlier this month for the Global Sources China and India Sourcing Fair.  The show was held between May 31st and June 2nd at the International Convention and Exhibition Center.

Our booth was well located, at the main entrance of Hall 8 and opposite the Global Sources booth.  Bruno reported consistent traffic and had an opportunity to speak with many companies from the Emirates and other Middle-East countries.  He also noted several companies were from India/Pakistan and Europe.
