Vote Early and Often!

It's getting to be that time of year again when the campaigning begins. Your industry organizations and suppliers need your support. Please let me know what trade shows you are planning to attend in 2008. We will use this information to plan our trade show schedule for 2008. You can see from the list of 20 trade shows it would be impossible for us to attend each one because some Shows overlap each other.

I am also interested in your comments and experiences at some of the Shows listed because I have not been to all of them and I need some encouragement to make some changes to our routine schedule of all the big ASI and PPAI shows.

After looking at all these trade shows and dates, I have one burning question.... Who enjoys going to trade shows on weekends? Maybe I'm selfish, but I get the sense from a lot of people that they would rather be home with their families on weekends. It appears like more trade shows are starting to be hosted over weekends. Does that bother any distributors out there? If you see the advantage of weekend shows please explain. Do you see any disadvantages of the weekend shows?

In recognition for voicing your comments on this blog, we will give you a free artwork set-up charge ($60 value) on your next order. Write promotion code "Blog1010"

Looking forward to seeing you soon.


P.S. Our reversible Donkey Elephant Reversible Puppet is the perfect campaign promotion for all the news organizations (i.e. TV, Radio, Newspapers) that claim non-partisan views.

Being away during the work week interupts my flow so weekends are fine with me.

I think that having tradeshows on the weekends allows for smaller businesses, such as us, to attend while not missing out on the everyday workflow. If you're a small distributor, you may not have the manpower to cover the office with additional staff if you're traveling a significant portion of the work week. So in essence, I would actually prefer the weekened travel.
