My business partner Rick Anderson and I recently exhibited at the Northwest Event Show in Seattle. I’ve attended as a visitor many years, but we decided to invest our time and money in a booth this year. Held at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center, the Event Show features many of the region’s top caterers, venues, attractions, decorators, event suppliers, entertainers, and more. I had more fun walking the tradeshow floor and visiting my friends and clients in the hospitality biz than holding down the booth. It was great having Rick there to help out.
Both Rick and I were invited to showcase and perform on stage for the attendees. The stage was hurt by poor placement, which was very surprising to me since PNTA set up the stage and they’re experts. (Their sound and lighting tech was excellent. They were likely told by the Convention Center and Event Show staff where to erect the stage, but those folks should also know better.) Anyway, Rick and I are pros and did our best to build a tip and put on an entertaining show.
This is a classy tradeshow with some outstanding booths. My favorites included the Games2U and Party Outfitters exhibits that both had full-scale toys
and games and play. The decorating companies definitely go all out to highlight what they do. Longhorn BBQ was excellent. I’m already
looking forward to next year!
