DAX Chicago – Day One

30th April 2010

DAX Chicago – Day One

9:45 a.m.  We’re in the booth, doing last minute straightening and organizing.  Always finding ways to display our products better.   Looking forward to a great day.

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.
