NATE Unite 2016

For the past four years, we’ve been attending the NATE Unite Convention and we have to say, picking our favorite convention memory is similar to picking out our favorite fall protection gear supplier. Just kidding, that’s us. This year, the NATE Unite convention was so rad. Between the location, food, people, and the greatest after party there ever was, we’d unanimously agree that the next NATE Unite is going to have some big shoes to fill.

So Nola Huh?

So when NATE began talk of NATE Unite 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana, our mouths began to water with the images of beignets and crawfish bouncing around. We were very lucky to get to enjoy a glorious array of food, including the Best Fried Chicken in America at the famous Willie Maes and some beignets… oh beignets. Later, NATE graciously gave us the opportunity to walk off those beignets on our way to the convention center, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t enjoy that too.

We were thrilled with the turnout of NATE Unite this year. It was incredible. We also enjoyed all the vendors and speakers we got to hangout with. If you’re not a fan of name-dropping, skip down to the next paragraph because we’d be crazy if we didn’t show love to Bridgette Hestter of the Hubble Foundation, Robert from New England Ropes, along with everyone else we got to hangout with/ party down with! It was great to get to hang out with you all and talk shop.
But let’s be real, The NATE After Party was so wonderful and great and freaking rad, we’d be full of it if we said it wasn’t out favorite part of the conference. We’d genuinely like to thank everyone who came, what a turn out, man oh man! We’d like to inform everyone that no booze went to waste, so rest assured. Thank goodness the next day at NATE Unite didn’t start until two pm, our heads were pounding even then. Thank you also to our awesome co-sponsors who helped us bring down the house! SafetyOne, Buckingham, and Alliance, we had a great time!

Overall, it was just wonderful. Thanks to everyone who came to our booth and/or partied with us. If you’d like to chat some more, give us a ring! Geeze, New Orleans is a really special place and NATE, hell yeah for choosing that spot. We aren’t really sure how people from New Orleans exist, what with all the late nights and beignets, but we are sure glad they do.
