As a new member of the ORA (Oregon Remodelers Association) I got to attend the recent Home Improvement & Remodeling Show, as one of 3 judges for the vendor booths. It was great to see all the different booths – all 300 and something – and get a glimpse of the various products and services.
I definitely earned my keep that evening. 300 vendors over 4 hours of judging meant 48 seconds per booth! whew, no wonder my feet hurt. But well worth it.
If I have any advice for vendors for next time, it would be to make sure your company name is clearly displayed in your booth. As judges, there were some booths where we couldn’t tell who the business was, or they had product name signs that were more front and center.
If you weren’t able to make it this year, be sure to go next……
