trade show sergeant, at your service

I have an exciting giveaway to offer readers that are thinking about taking the leap into wholesale trade show exhibition! Tradeshow Bootcamp is a series of teleconference workshops that were developed by my friend Katie of Kelp Designs. The workshops were offered this spring and were well received and now fall session is in full swing.

This giveaway is for one of the six workshops that are offered, the Networking session. On Thursday, October 20th - Chandra Greer, of GREER, and I will give participants an inside look at what retailers and reps are looking for when roaming the trade show floor and will be answering your specific questions.

To enter the giveaway ---

Leave a comment with a question that you have for us regarding trade show networking. That's all! Good luck, winner will be announced on Monday, October 10th. As of today, there's still time to sign up for the remaining four workshops, highly recommended for first time exhibitors.

I've really been crushing on Laura George's work lately. I discovered her designs at Zim Zim and have been essentially stalking her Etsy shop since. The sentiments and mood are perfectly perfect. It would be kind of criminal if I didn't bring this amazing card to your attention too.

And, one more thing ---
I'm a day or two late in announcing it (oops), but Heather of Joy of all Crafts is the winner of our Tori Higa book giveaway. Congratulations, Heather!
