CHICAGO — Grainger recently welcomed nearly 15,000 attendees to its annual show in Orlando, Fla.

Held at the Orange County Convention Center, the event, in its ninth year, included an expanded trade show with more than 600 supplier booths, a bigger Grainger Town, a display of Grainger’s services and solutions, and two days of educational seminars, discussion groups, and training sessions.

“During the last several years, our customers have been forced to cut budgets and reduce overhead, while increasing productivity,” said Deb Oler, vice president and general manager, Grainger. “They have done a heroic job, but the pressures continue. The Grainger Show is an opportunity for our customers to discuss, share, and learn. It’s a privilege to host this dialogue through our biggest and best show ever, bringing together the resources that will enable them to succeed in an ever-changing environment.”
