Last year we introduced WamBam Fence to the world at the annual National Hardware Show in Vegas. This year we were back with a vengeance.
I ended up working the show solo, because things are just too crazy at the office to have had anyone else leave. It was a bit of a challenge to set up myself, but thankfully I was able to pilfer some help along the way thanks to our sister companies- Mayne Outdoor Products and New England Arbors. There was only one casualty when the showcase piece fell on top of me during tear down. I have an impressive gash and bruise on my back. I guess I should just be thankful that it didn’t land on my head!
The show was a success with some solid leads, even though it was a bit heartbreaking to inform several people that we’re pretty much all out of product. However, a lot of people broke out into a grin and said that it was a great problem to have. I’m not sure I share the sentiment as we are unfortunately turning sales away every day.
After a week in Vegas, the old saying “the best part about going away is coming home” rings very true.
