FMI Connect affords attendees an opportunity to meet experienced vendors with the knowledge to implement solutions designed to increase
sales and profits. Retailers that stop by Corrigan’s booth will be able to
see its equipment up close and interact with several “dry fog” displays.
Emily Stavrou, marketing director for Gurnee, Ill.-based Corrigan, says
the company will be offering tours of local Chicago area supermarkets
that are currently using Corrigan equipment. Stavrou says Corrigan’s
goal at the show is to familiarize buyers with the quality and value of their
equipment. “More than 6o percent of all store shrink can be attributed
to perishable departments and that’s where Corrigan makes the biggest
difference. Our company’s 37-year experience allows us to couple innovation and treatment options to maximize results for retailers,” she says.
This year marks the first time Dana Industries is exhibiting at FMI
Connect. Roopjot Derose, marketing manager, says the Toronto-based
company decided to exhibit at FMI Connect to expose its brand to the
many retailers and others attending the show. “We are looking forward
to talking to retailers about the value they can gain by implementing a
Dana Shelf Signage program and welcome the opportunity to talk to
them about some of our new in-store technologies that can help them
complete,” says Derose.
Every year Brasco International commits to unveiling a design that is
unpredictable and memorable at the show, says Jennifer Evans, director
of sales and marketing for the Madison Heights, Mich.-based com-
pany. “It is always our goal to get retailers excited about what we can
provide them with so they want to make sure we follow-up with them
after the show,” she says.

to producing high-quality, delicious food and who are looking to make
their operations more efficient. “Our ultimate goal is to learn about

Lunetta, Cynch and Essenza, as well as new
