It’s that time of year and we are counting down the hours until the 2011 ABC Kids Expo begins. This is the biggest trade event we attend on an annual basis, with almost 1000 other exhibitors. It’s our time to meet with our amazing dealers, gather feedback and share with them all we have to offer for the upcoming year.
Of course, we are still in the midst of setup here at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, but I’ve already been over to the 5000 square foot booth to take a peek, and let me tell you, there are some exciting things coming for 2012. It kind of makes me want another little one…like right now, so I can build out a beautiful nursery with some of the fabulous new collections we have coming…but, I won’t let envy get the best of me and I’ll bide my time on that one.
So, you might wonder, what it takes to get prepared for an event like this. Well, speaking from experience, it’s a lot of logistics, details, moving parts and hard work that make it all come together. This year we assembled all of our collections in our warehouses and shipped them to the show all intact. It definitely gives us a jump on things by not having to do all the work on the show floor during the limited setup time. Of course, it took 3 full 52 ft. trucks to get it there, but all well worth it in the end to see all of the collections dressed out and ready to show.
If you’re in for the show, we’d love to see you, so stop by booth #5511. And if not, be on the lookout for some great things coming to a nearby dealer in 2012—you won’t be disappointed!
