With Trade Shows being back in 2022 and things going back to normal – in person – after the COVID-19 pandemic. EDI is back in full swing showcasing our great arsenal of products, from ballistic helmets, bulletproof vests, and gas masks to riot gear, accessories, apparel, and ballistic shields. EDI’s team of sales and tactical experts traveled nationally and internationally to exhibit at several trade shows this fall, demonstrating the best technologies and developments in protective gear on the market today.
Here are some of the trade shows we hit this fall and the industry insights we gleaned for police, law enforcement and corrections officers:
The International Defense Industry Exhibition – MSPO (Warsaw, Poland, September 2022)
EDI’s team of experts started off with the International Defense Industry Exhibition MSPO in Poland, which is the largest trade fair event dedicated to military equipment in central and eastern Europe. With the ongoing Russia / Ukraine war, and rising number of orders and interest in our products from this region, we felt the need to be there and directly interact with our customers where future EDI technologies can address their needs on the ground and on the front lines. We’ve also had the opportunity to showcase our top-of-the-line products, and customers have specifically shown interest in our bullet resistant vests and gas masks.
Association of the United States Army – AUSA (Washington, DC, October 2022)
EDI’s team also made an appearance at the annual meeting at the Association of the United States Army AUSA in Washington DC, which is the largest land power exposition and professional development forum in North America, designed to deliver the Army’s message by highlighting the capabilities of organizations and presenting a wide range of industry products and services. The attendees which include Regular Army, Guard, Reserve, civilians, and family members were particularly interested in EDI’s great range of ballistic helmets.
International Association of Chiefs of Police – IACP (Dallas, Texas, October 2022)
This fall we also sent out our team of experts to the International Association of Chiefs of Police IACP held in Dallas, Texas this year. Being one of the most important industry events, attracting attendees from all corners of the world with its forums shaping and discussing the agenda in the field for the next year and reflecting on all the events that happened in the last few years. EDI and the team were happy and excited to be back – we were last there in 2019 – to catch up and collaborate with our partners and clients from across the USA and around the world. There was a great deal of interest in EDI’s plethora of products in the Riot Gear and Ballistic Shields categories.
EDI’s upcoming trade shows in 2023
The EDI team was very busy connecting and reconnecting with our respected partners and clients for the fall season of 2022, they remain excited for the future and the upcoming trade shows and events planned for 2023 and beyond.
We look forward to supporting the industry and our clients with the best equipment and technologies available.
