The start of a new year means it’s the start of tradeshow season at East Coast Chair & Barstool. It’s always exciting to get out in the field and meet old customers and connect with new customers face to face.
We will be exhibiting at the New England Food Show in Boston and at the Nightclub & Bar Show in Las Vegas this March.

For us, tradeshows are a great time to showcase our newest furniture.
