Our Learning Expo on Thursday and Friday had a fabulous turnout with over 20 hands-on training sessions, educational seminars, and step-by-step troubleshooting courses. Customers not only learned the ins and outs of master keying, school security, and electrical system wiring, but also walked away with some great giveaways!
The Learning Expo culminated with a radical flash back to the 1980s at our Miami Vice dinner party! Customers, manufacturers, and the Southern Lock crew broke out their best ‘80s wear and came together Friday night to enjoy live music, cocktails, and photo booth fun in anticipation of the trade show on Saturday. We love to see familiar faces in attendance and get a chance to celebrate the Southern Lock family.
On Saturday, over 30 manufacturers were represented at our Trade Show at the historic Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg. Hundreds of customers enjoyed meeting with manufacturer reps and the Southern Lock team, not to mention winning some awesome giveaways! By visiting every booth, customers got to spin the prize wheel and receive an entry into the grand prize raffle.
Allegion’s Ultimate Locksmith Challenge saw local locksmiths race against the clock to install Schlage® NDE Series locks and LCN® closers in a competition for the top prize. Over at the BEST Access booth, the Precision Torque Test challenged customers of all ages to put their strength to the test and see just what it takes to bust vandal-resistant lever locks.
