Shooting from the Hip (trade show tips)

Shooting from the Hip by Reid Sherwood

This week has been a technology roller coaster. All that really means is that our server is/was having problems. Email was not working obviously, which leaves a traveling sales guy with a smartphone that only works as a phone. It seems almost pointless doesn’t it?

August being upon us means that we should all start seeing more orders, and I think we will. I received a voice mail (since email was down) from Mike Sandler of Atlantic Exhibits-Baltimore earlier this week. Mike is not known for embellishing, so I take this as gospel truth. Here is the quote, “Reid – P10s and Magellans are literally flying out of the showroom right now.” I have never seen an exhibit fly, but if Mike says so then I believe him.

I hate to say this, but I believe the baseball season is all but over in Michigan. Just too many injuries to too many Detroit Tigers players. I am going to be a good sport about this and say that I hope the SOX win the division. I still think the Tigers are the only bright spot in Detroit.

Don’t forget to register for Mel’s webinar on Classic Exhibit Design Search (Tuesday and Wednesday). This will be a very productive hour. Trust me on this.

May the Sales God smile upon you until we talk again.

Until the next time,

–Reid Sherwood
