Seattle Boat Show

Just spent the weekend up in Seattle at the boat show with the wife, kids, and dog. Saying hi to a lot of friends/acquaintances, and passed about 100 cards for my USCG delivery and instruction business.

I always think that the best part of the show is on the side lines, were vendors show new products and technology.

Re: Seattle Boat Show

You might want to think about broadcasting the fact that you were promoting your business at the show without registering as a vendor. It goes on a lot, but the Boat Show people don't appreciate it.

Re: Seattle Boat Show

I am a contractor of sorts, and most everybody I talked to didn't mind talking with me. Just cause you are a vendor at a tradeshow does not mean you always have to have a booth. I used to work at HP and we would walk the floors of technology trade shows all the time and not have a booth present. What is the difference .....
