Arrow Distributing dealers and suppliers filled the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas as the distributor’s Exhibitor’s Showcase commenced on Jan. 16-17.
Arrow Vice President Andy Mullin said the show had positive attendance and orders compared with last year.
Mullin said, “It is an optimistic look for the season coming up.”
Mullin also announced dates for Arrow’s 2025 show. The Arrow Exhibitor Showcase will be held Jan. 7-8, 2025, in New Orleans.
Last week’s show floor in Las Vegas bustled with interactive supplier games and contests among dealers and Arrow incentives such as the Poker Run. As dealers put in orders at different booths, qualifying orders yielded poker cards dealers could collect. Each hour, participating dealers with the best hand of cards received discounts. The Poker Run winner of the whole show received a cash prize. Arrow additionally held cash and raffle drawings.
A Happy Hour cart appeared Wednesday before the show’s cocktail hour. Mullin said the cocktail hour was well-received.
Mullin said the distributor received positive dealer feedback on the show.
“We have a stress-free,” Mullin said, “low-pressure show.”
