This time of year is very hectic. Like all of you, we are preparing for the holidays. We are also preparing for boat show season which starts in early January and runs through March. The timing is such that it gets us thinking of warmer days in the dead of winter and visualizing those laid back hours on the water despite the fact that many of our lakes are frozen.
The logistics of securing exhibit space, arranging for services, booking hotels, making travel arrangements and organizing what the exhibit will look like can be overwhelming. It seems even more chaotic this year because we have to choose which of the nine models to display in our 10′ x 10′ booth. That said, it is definitely worth the effort. Besides giving potential customers a chance to “touch and feel” our products, we get to hear firsthand what their needs are. It is through this feedback that we have grown from one to nine models of WAG Boarding Steps™.
The first boat show WaterDog Adventure Gear™ will be at is the Nashville Boat & Sportshow on January 8-11, 2015. This will be our inaugural appearance at this show. We try to hit a different part of the country each year and Nashville seemed like a great location. We look forward to meeting new people and visiting with existing customers. We are also looking forward to seeing what Nashville has to offer after the show closes.
We are still finalizing what other shows we may be doing this winter. If you have suggestions, send them our way.
