Amcon exhibits at Vision Expo West 2013

Amcon's booth at Vision Expo West

Amcon’s booth at Vision Expo West

It’s Monday morning and fortunately all of our Amcon sales reps made it back from Las Vegas safely. After chatting with them briefly, it seems that by all accounts, it was a great show.

As I mentioned in last week’s post, it’s been a few years since we exhibited at Vision Expo West, so we were not sure what to expect.  While the location of our booth was far from ideal, we did get the opportunity to see a lot of old and new customers, and traffic was fairly steady.  In fact, the Amcon team was wishing that our booth space was larger to better accommodate all our visitors, and that was noted for next year.

One of the big draws to our booth was the Amcon roulette wheel. Customers placing orders of $150 or more got to spin the wheel and take their chances on one of many exciting prizes – including free shipping and varying dollar amounts off of the order total.   According to the Amcon sales reps, the wheel whoooped up quite a bit of enthusiasm – getting shouts of “BIG MONEY, BIG MONEY – NO WHAMMIES!” from the sales reps, customers and even our neighboring exhibitors.

First time exhibitor, Amcon sales rep Susan Meyers reported:

As a first timer, I was overly amazed by the show in general. It was nice to put faces to customers that I have spoken to as their previous rep-even more surprising is I remembered some of them and they remembered me, too. The “Wheel of Amcon” was quite popular to say the least. Everyone wanted to come by and spin it. We definitely have to bring that back to Vegas.

As far as stories….what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. LOL

Thanks, Susan!  And thank you to all of the Amcon customers who came by our booth!  See you at the next show.
