10:03 a.m. Have to put in a plug for the staff and management at DAX. They’ve been nothing but awesome. Problems are handled quickly, check in was easy, and they put on a nice breakfast spread. If you’re an exhibitor, this is a great show.
10:22 a.m. Doors have opened. Already starting to see people. So fun to watch Tom Paquette in action. He’s a great representative for EnMart, and so knowledgeable about our products.
10:45 a.m. It’s so fun to see people getting excited over our colors. I’ve actually seen people walking by the booth be stopped and transfixed by the thread display.
11:40 a.m. I love seeing people getting so excited by the products we offer. It’s so great to be able to fill a need that someone has at a price that is less than what they expected to pay.
12:00 p.m. Just had someone stop by the booth who was just starting out. We gave her a thread sample and I thought she was going to burst into tears. She smiled one of the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen.
12:54 p.m. Lady just stopped by the booth and asked me a bunch of questions that I answered. When she left she said “It was worth coming to the show just to be able to stop by this booth. ” How awesome is that?
1:48 p.m. So much fun introducing people to EnMart. More and more people know who we are, but you do run into someone every once in a while who isn’t familiar with the company. They’re so happy to find out we’re in the Midwest.
3:20 p.m. Top two questions: “Does your thread run without a lot of thread breaks?” and “Do you have a metallic thread that runs easily? I hate metallic thread!” So glad to be able to answer yes to both.
4:08 p.m. You know you’re company is doing something right when customers hug you and tell you they came to the show specifically to see you. I love it.
4:54 p.m. Day one is winding down. We had a good first day. Saw lots of interested people and shared a lot of good information. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
