Elyria, Ohio-based RIDGID's Reputation Roadshow kicked off its third season in March and runs through the end of September with stops in 34 cities throughout the United States and Canada. This year's events feature new RIDGID tools and technologies including RIDGIDConnect, an online business tool that allows trade professionals to securely share, store, and simplify information for a project via a laptop computer or smart phone.

The latest in the RIDGID SeeSnake Upgrade line of products will be on display as well, giving tradesmen at each stop the chance to experience the new RIDGID technologies. Attendees will be given sneak peeks at upcoming product launches.

Lunch is served at every show and a model from the well-known RIDGID calendar is present to sign autographs.

"We have some exciting new tools to show off at this year's Reputation Roadshow, " says Wyatt Kilmartin, director, RIDGID branding. "The Roadshow is an opportunity for trade professionals to come out and have some fun and also learn about new products that can drive efficiencies and, ultimately, increase their bottom lines. The 2010 Reputation Roadshow promises to be the best yet! "
