Yesterday Mousetrapper wrapped up Safety 2018 in San Antonio and boy was it a great experience.
Lance from Prestige and Anders from Mousetrapper enjoyed interacting with everyone that stopped by the booth and showing them the different designs Mousetrapper has to offer.. The attendees were always up to learning about the products and how it can change the way you use a computer.
The city of San Antonio and ASSE could not have been better hosts. San Antonio has a great atmosphere, restaurants, sights and sounds that made the stay there even more enjoyable. ASSE put on a flawless show that made it easy for us to set up, interact and share our information.
Now that Safety 2018 is in the books we can’t wait to see what other shows Prestige has on the horizon and cant wait until we come back next year, with our own booth.
