ARMO Continues to Seek New Products
In order to help promote the automotive restoration industry and members new products ARMO hosts a New Products Showcase yearly. Does your company have a creative or innovative new original restoration product or Resto-Mod product you would like the industry and consumers to know about?

ARMO member companies are invited to participate in the 11th annual New Products Showcase being held in conjunction with Spring Carlisle, April 23–27. More than 100,000 people visited the Carlisle Fairgrounds in 2007, and the majority who passed through ARMO’s New Product Showcase were thrilled to be one of the first to view the new items our member companies had to offer.

ARMO-member companies are encouraged to take advantage of this fantastic free opportunity to introduce products to the industry and enthusiasts.  ARMO also has judges in place to review each new product for the best in each category. The winning products and companies will be honored at the ARMO Industry Awards Reception during the 2008 SEMA Show. For an entry form, click here. All entry forms must be received by SEMA no later than Wednesday, April 16, 2008.
