We arrived Thursday, and pulled all Natures Way items out of the travel van, and placed in the assigned booth. Friday was setup day, so with everything already there, setting everything in place was a breeze. This provided a little time in the afternoon to casually stroll the exhibit as it was being set up.
The new venue Bill Valavanis found is in East Rochester, in the Total Sports Experience building. Quite a different venue from 2012, which was in a poorly lighted quonset hut!
The display area was about twice the previous size. The vendor area was about 4 times the previous, as was the demo area. The lighting was extremely good, so every detail was clearly visible. This made shopping a breeze! The flooring was covered by artificial turf, so was pleasant to walk on and see...
Sara Rayner was there with more pots than I had ever seen her bring to any show! By the end of the show, she sold about 75%!
Well Done Brian!!!!!
