I used Scofields Paublo brown integral color and a black powder release. The stamps are from walttools.com.

Hello Christian-long time no talk. Now that you've had a couple months since the show, how's it going? Has the response turned into some workable leads and jobs? I am wanting to share some ideas with a few members regarding getting the best out of a show. From my experience, one needs the whole dog & pony show. We need to make it seem like people are going from booth to booth, and then when they see us, it's like they've wandered into an oasis. It's a process to make people think they are in a place, instead of just looking at items in a cold cubicle. Lots of simple and inexpensive tricks to accomplish the goal.

I think it's good to put some fresh things into the booth from time to time, but some of the ole favorites are good to bring back. One thing I really liked about your display was the variety. You have many different looks in vertical there, and they all transitioned well with each other. If you really sit and look at your booth, there was great balance. Many I've seen (and I've been at hundreds of shows) are real choppy and with no real sense of purpose.

 

If I had any advice for you, it would be to keep what you've got and build on it. People that saw you in February will recognize you next round. Just add some new surprises for them. If there's a piece you're not crazy about, upgrade that. Spend some time on the foo-foo part of your booth. Hide the rollers with trim, cloth or plants. Create an environment or theme, and it will draw people in without their knowing why. Let them wander around trying to figure out just  what you do. I'm going to get a conversation going here to help all of us reap more from our show efforts. I hope you join in. One thing about live demo's-I don't like them unless you're selling a D.I.Y. product. I say maintain the mystery. That's just my take, though. Talk to you more later. Take care and keep working hard.

Christian-I just saws something about you ditching your booth display. Hope you didn't just junk it. Try placing old display pieces in other businesses, or anywhere you can get some attention. Also, ahead of the next round of shows, talk to other manufacturers and dealers of things like fireplaces and grills, show them your work, and see if they would give/loan you cool items to be in your displays in exchange for promoting them. After your show, they may want the display kept at their location, giving you free storage and ongoing exposure. They may even co-op costs of show booth rentals.

A little over 1000 square feet of stone work, sandblasting and recolor of stone.

I'm happy to hear you're finally getting plugged into the right spots up there. Tear 'em up!

Thanks David, slowly but surely I'm figuring out who I need to talk to and try to sell to. We're starting to get a little recognition but as a whole 99% of people are not aware of this industry as being an option when they are constructing or renovating. I'm going to be concentrating on some niche markets like the wine cellars as a start and will hopefully get some people talking and then incorporate some interior designers and architects. As far as the rocks go I've been poking at some developers  and am going to try to get the City to use our services somewhere. I'll keep everyone posted as we make progress and be sure to share what works and doesn't.
