On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to go to the IT & Chamber Services Fair with Debbie Yedlin. I was really excited to be in a new setting and see how vendors and potential clients interacted with each other.
The fair was set up like a cruise. Each Chamber employee was given a passport and the vendors were the ports of call. As the employees walked around to the different ports of call, the vendors would stamp their company’s page in the passport after being spoken to about the services they provided. This was meant to be an interactive type of fun activity for the employees. I thought the theme worked really well for the fair and made it more enjoyable.
Summit’s display looked really great and the employees loved it! Debbie and I spoke to employees from many different Chamber departments. A lot of them recognized Summit Group from either seeing our products at the Chamber or from personally using them. They could not believe that there were so many different products that could be branded! Our table included everything from portable phone chargers to notepads to crystal awards. Debbie and I also brought a lot of Summit giveaways for the employees who stopped to talk to us. They were all very appreciative.
Overall, I really enjoyed representing Summit Group at the fair. It was a lot more exciting speaking to potential clients face to face rather than over the phone or through e-mail. This experience definitely taught me the importance of good communication and approachability in the marketing and sales industry.
Think we might be worthy of a conversation? We'd love to hear what you have in mind.
