The National Hardware Convention was an important event for Z Grills. It was a chance for us to represent our brand among our peers and learn more about how the grilling industry is evolving.
The president of Z Grills, along with the general operations manager, attended every day of the event to personally represent Z Grills and ensure our message was communicated. While there, they also made sure that all questions and concerns about our products were addressed.
On display was our premium 700 series grills, featuring 700 square inches of cooking space with a cooking heat range from 180°F to 475°, and offering ample cabinet space underneath the grill barrell.
We also had our 550B grills, featuring 528 square inches of cooking space and also having a cooking heat range from 180°F to 475°F. The 550B also has two back wheels for easy mobility from your garage to your backyard or wherever!
With that said, the show was awesome! It was fun, surprising, and a great space to meet new friends while reconnecting with old colleagues. It also offered an impressive diversity of vendors. We discovered many new trends in the grilling industry while being introduced to all kinds of cool products for outdoor recreation.
Some of the most random and priceless moments during the event were when costume characters marched around the convention, offering photos opportunities. Among the rogues gallery of characters were a barbarian escorted by two women in Roman togas. More amusing was a giant mosquito, probably sponsored by a pest control company, who was walking around looking to get swatted.
Outside the convention center were grill vendors who were sampling food. Barbecue grilling exhibits presented a tangy offering of barbecue rubs and sauces. Their were Cajon rubs and Spicy BBQ sauces along with grilled meats and seafood..
This event was definitely a boon for Z Grills. We were able to build new friendships and rediscovered old ones. We made contact with a variety of vendors that provide grilling accessories such as rubs and sauces. Keep your eye out with more about what's next for us and how these events shape the future of everything Z Grills.
