"Many of us from the Barry County Road Commission attend the CRA Highway Conference and Road Show every year.  The sheer size and scope of the Road Show doesn't allow us to miss the opportunity to network in one location with that many people within our industry.  Meeting new people and maintaining relationships with companies we already do business with makes for a great event.  Annually we look forward to learning about new companies, and the newest industry trends to take back to our community to utilize." Jake Welch, Director of Operations, Barry County Road Commission.

"The Road Show is a fantastic way to meet new commissioners, county road agency staff, and old friends in a relaxed atmosphere.  It provides an “avenue” where we can show off equipment to the commissioners that are usually not available to see what we offer.  We really appreciate the networking and business opportunities the Road Show offers." Jeff Ely, Governmental Sales Manager, AIS Construction Equipment.
