SPRINKLED AROUND THE BACK OF THE MAIN FLOOR AND IN THE MILE

High Ballroom at the Snow Show, you'll find more than 160 sourcing exhibitors that represent the best in class for their respective categories. It's
taken a few years for supply chain companies to gain critical mass, but as
the Show became a sourcing sandbox for the military, real growth stepped
in line. The continued participation of the military has "supercharged the
supply chain" side of the Show, in the words of supply-chain expert Gene
Tyndall of Ernst & Young. Many brands understand the benefits of military
R&D, which often trickles down to civilian applications. Want to learn
more? Here are 20 sourcing brands to check out at Snow Show 2019.
