RIDGID®, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, recently welcomed winners of the fourth annual RIDGID Experience Contest to the brand’s world headquarters. Winners of the all-expenses-paid, 3-day trip enjoyed a variety of VIP professional and networking experiences, including the opportunity to build their own iconic RIDGID customized pipe wrench, get a sneak peek at the latest RIDGID innovations that have yet to hit the market and to provide insight for future product development.

Almost immediately, attendees took to social media to share their trip highlights with others – including all the perks of the experience:

“There is no better way to celebrate the hard work these tradespeople give to their customers than treating them to a VIP experience,” said Becky Brotherton, director of engagement marketing, RIDGID for Emerson. “Adding to this year’s excitement was getting to interact with those just entering the field, learning how they got interested in the trades and where they plan to make their mark in the profession.”
