Hospitality Design Expo - Tradeshow Madness
So you know the feeling when you are clearly 'under dressed'? Or perhaps I should say fully naked in front of a group of strangers? Well that's what it feels like rolling your SUV pulling a U-Haul trailer into the MASSIVE production that is the HD Expo trade show at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. We were literally dodging cranes that were hanging $10,000 signage for the BIG boys, while we were busy toting our cordless drill and assembling our IKEA cabinets. But honestly, there is no time to freak out, you've been freaking out for weeks already! So... ROLL ON and get over it! LOL! You got a booth of cordless lamps to show the world, so it's go time;)
On a shoe string budget (that is the entrepreneur way!) we pulled it off A-OK. Our booth was ready for the show and we had fun showing off our unique product to designers, architecture firms, restaurant developers and high end hotels chains. Our cordless lighting solutions received warm receptions and outside of some cutting edge tech stuff getting stolen from some low-lifes, we had a blast and made some very good contacts.
Hope to see ya again next year Vegas!
