Colorado companies see NOCOM as a strategic investment to grow business
LOVELAND, Colo., January 24, 2020 — Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership (NoCo) is pleased to announce the major sponsors for NOCOM 2020: City of Loveland, FirstBank, Aerotek, Flood and Peterson, and Plante Moran. The event will be held on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at The Ranch Events Complex in Loveland.
“Flood and Peterson has found our participation in the NOCO Manufacturing Partnership Trade Show invaluable in furthering not only our brand awareness but our building of relationships within the manufacturing community,” said Sabrina Flood, Director of Marketing & Communications. “The event provides both visibility as well as the opportunity to network and show how we deliver the breadth and depth of our services. It has given us a powerful platform to meet both new customers as well as existing clients while furthering our credibility and establishing our brand.”
“NOCOM is the place to be to stay connected to the pulse of the manufacturing industry. It is the premier manufacturing event in Northern Colorado,” said Chris Otto, Managing Partner of Plante Moran’s Fort Collins office. “NOCOM has proven that it has staying power. The industry-led organizing Committee does a great job of keeping it focused on the manufacturers, making it appealing for sponsors, attendees, and vendors. Through NOCOM, we are able to connect directly with new client prospects.”
NOCOM is Colorado’s largest manufacturing tradeshow, organized by local business leaders. The event showcases Northern Colorado’s expanding manufacturing sector as well as connects suppliers, manufacturers, capital, and services. Last year, despite the bomb cyclone snowstorm, over 900 people attended the show and networking events, which featured 114 exhibitors and Colorado OEDIT Executive Director, Betsy Markey.
“Every year this event gets stronger,” said 2018 and 2019 Exhibitor, Jake Precup, Regional Sales Manager for Klinger IGI, Inc. “My company gets a lot of business from NOCOM and the business relationships it has built has been invaluable to me. This event puts business needs together for Colorado manufacturers like no other event. The venue is easy to navigate and companies get a good traffic pattern.”
“NoCo continues to demonstrate support of manufacturing across a range of industries,” said Heidi Hostetter, NOCOM 2020 trade show chair. “Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in the nation; Northern Colorado, specifically Larimer and Weld counties, is growing twice as fast as the state. Based on industry-feedback, we are expanding to include the construction industry as part of the 2020 show.”
