We are extremely grateful to our sponsors and presenters who sustain us and make this important independent gathering of our industry possible,” said Elvis Hoffpauir, MACS president and chief operating officer, who also celebrated his 35th year with the association.

The MACS Training Event was sponsored by 40 companies, and the trade show had 80 exhibitors and 92 booths. There were 25 speakers and presentations and many prize winners at the trade show, including Diane Larson of Larson’s Service in Peabody, Mass., who took home a brand-new Robinair 34788NI recovery machine.
