OMAHA, NB (04.10.2014) – The Mid-State Distributing 2014 show circuit is set for Omaha, April 12th and 13th. The Fargo event follows on April 24th and 25th. Both events will be held in the Mid-State facility in the respective city.

Tom Kolar, Mid-State national sales manager, offered to 12voltnews.com, “Vendor support for both locations is very strong and dealer registration is running way ahead of last year. We have noticed a significant number of new dealers signed up to come this year. A number of dealers are coming from the Colorado area served by our Denver location.”

The Mid-State Omaha facility lays out nicely for a dealer show. A portion of the warehouse sets up well for exhibitor tables around the perimeter. The showroom area is a great area vendor sessions as well as for lunch and refreshments.
