One thought on “Come Visit and See What’s New

  1. Well everyone is back in New England again. I personally am missing the 80 degree weather of Orlando but I’m also glad to be home.

    Both shows we attended were good. Attendance was a little down but that was to be expected. Everyone is being cautious these days with their budgets and priorities have to be adjusted.

    Iliana LeBeau, our Catalog List Manager and Chelsea Dolloff, our Special Accounts Manager were in Atlantic City at the Tri-State Camp Conference. It was a positive experience to be able to socialize after the show with camps we currently have as customers and the camps we are looking to serve.

    We met some great educators in Florida as well and even ran into a few neighbors from Rhode Island that came to visit our booth.

    It was our first time to the ASCD Conference so we decided to have a raffle offering $100 worth of awards. This was a hit and definitely helped us to introduce ourselves to the attendees. Kita Asbill from Great Expectations in OK was the lucky winner.

    Did you attend one of these shows? Let us know what you thought.
