Representatives from 10 Countries Attended an Invitation Only Demonstration Held in Conjunction with the Las Vegas SHOT Show
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 24, 2019 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, reported that it hosted an invitation only demonstration of the Company's first product, the BolaWrap 100, to more than 25 representatives from distributors from 10 different countries on Wednesday. The areas represented included North and South America, Europe and Asia.
"The interest and response to the BolaWrap 100 non-lethal solution from the international community has been extraordinary," said David Norris, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "We decided to invite selected prospective agents and distributors, many attending the 2019 SHOT Show, to a live demonstration of the product. Each also had the opportunity to deploy the BolaWrap 100 in person and meet our executive, sales and training staff."
"After yesterday's successful demonstration, we will now begin a strict and strategic vetting process in order to determine the most effective distribution strategy in selected countries," said Mike Rothans, Chief Operating Officer of the Company. "Attendees were very impressed with the performance of the BolaWrap 100 and reiterated to us the international need for a new solution to engage with an increasingly non-compliant public."
Since the Company began demonstrating the BolaWrap 100 in early 2018, representatives from more than 30 countries have reached out directly to the Company requesting demonstrations of the product and the opportunity to distribute to their respective law enforcement agencies. The Company recently shipped its first international order to Asia. The Company currently intends to implement a strategic international rollout of the BolaWrap 100 throughout 2019.
