IBEX: Guidi’s first trade show in the United States was a success

October is the celebration month of the discovery of America (October 12th, 1492, the so-called Columbus Day) but now we can say it is also the month in which America discovered Guidi.

Well yes because from October 3rd-5th, 2023 in Tampa, Florida, IBEX was held, a professional nautical accessories trade show, where the newly established Guidi America exhibited for its first time (booth 2-213).

Actually, Guidi products were known and sold in the United States even before this event, of course, but the direct contact with the IBEX audience was a key moment in the development of that market.

Yes, because the three-day exhibition was quite a success and encouraging about the future on the market, which has great potential but also specific needs.

At IBEX Guidi met shipyards, outfitters, and dealers who showed strong interest in its high-quality products on display.

Beyond the value of the items, we noticed that American customers also, look for service, which we are able to grant. This was appreciated and makes us realize that we are on the right path commented Daniele Guidi, Quality & Sustainability manager, who in Florida captained the company’s delegation and worked closely with Joseph Schneider, sales manager of Guidi America.

The U.S. subsidiary has already signed the first contracts and made some relevant deliveries, while products continue to arrive from Italy on a regular basis.

In short, Guidi’s start in the United States was positive and its trade participation very useful, so that its presence at IBEX has been confirmed for 2024 as well, although in a less international and more American location within the exhibition layout.
