ARMO Members Invited to Showcase Products at Spring Carlisle

By Ashley Reyes

Due to the unprecedented and growing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the 2020 ARMO Hot Products Showcase has been CANCELLED. The decision to cancel the event was difficult to make, and is being guided by recommendations and best practices from health officials. We thank our association community for their support as we take the measures needed to ensure the health and welfare of our members.

The Hot Products Showcase at Spring Carlisle provides an opportunity for ARMO members to display one or more products at one of the largest gatherings of automotive restoration enthusiasts in the world.

Manufacturers of restoration products may be able to showcase them to thousands of car enthusiasts at the Spring Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet, April 23–25, at no cost. Available exclusively to ARMO members as a benefit of council membership, the Hot Products Showcase is a popular feature at the Spring Carlisle, and allows ARMO members to display one or more products at one of the largest automotive restoration gatherings in the world.

In addition to showcasing products and increasing visibility, products may qualify for a New Product Award in five different categories, and will be professionally photographed. The photos will be used on the ARMO website and in the ARMO booth at the SEMA Show, and can be used by manufacturers for future promotions and marketing purposes.

The annual event attracts thousands of consumers each year, making the ARMO Hot Products Showcase the best way to promote automotive restyling products in the industry.
