Think back to the last trade show you attended either as a visitor or an exhibitor. What was your favorite part of the trade show? If you’re anything like me, you enthusiastically answered “swag!”. As you applied the free lip balm you scored from your last show, did you wonder where it came from? Additionally, have you ever thought about what trade shows would be like without the free marketing materials? I personally don’t think they would be nearly as enjoyable.
Thankfully, companies like Raining Rose exist. Raining Rose, Inc., has been part of the MAPCON family since 2014. At their Cedar Rapids, Iowa plant, they specialize in manufacturing all-natural, organic body care products, such as lip balm, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, and lotion. These products are marketed to other companies to use as promotional items to be given away at trade shows and other events. Not only do they make the products on-site, but they also print the custom packaging as well. And MAPCON is there, helping out, throughout the entire process. According to Director of Engineering Ian Flynn, MAPCON is used for both preventive and reactive maintenance, as well as reporting and data management.

Think back to your days in college. The hours spent in class, the days spent researching and writing a paper for class, the good times spent with friends at on-campus events. Now imagine how different those memories would be if there was no electricity. Could class still even occur? How would your research get done? Which events would have been canceled?
It’s fairly likely that most, if not all, of these things would be made a lot more difficult or even impossible without the use of electricity. And it’s even more likely that college students don’t really even consider that. Without power, the University of Notre Dame, along with others, would be quite different.
