Well, I'm back. We arrived back in Columbus about 1:30 am today, and to say I'm exhausted is an understatement. The show was from Sunday - Thursday, 9-6:00. I shook so many hands and explained how OnTray works more times than I ever thought I would have to. I'm not complaining one bit, however, because it exceeded my expectations! I met so many great people, both buyers and vendors alike, that I really think the show was a success for me and OnTray. I had some buyers telling me that they've had customers of theirs ask specifically for OnTray. Others were just in love with the idea, and of course some buyers flew right past my booth too. The last day we sold samples and mingled a little more with the vendors. It was such an amazing event. There were 2 floors and about 5000 vendors. I came home with some new orders, and will post those retailers to my site soon. I also passed out hundreds of flyer's and brochures so we'll see what the next couple of weeks still bring! Thanks to everyone for their support the past few months. I was completely wrapped up in preparing for my first ever trade show and was a little scattered brained in the process. Hopefully I'll be back to normal with this show under my belt!
BTW, some products and their sites I think you'd enjoy (I made some terrific friends):

Hi everyone! I'm writing this post from LasVegas! Chad & I are exhibiting OnTray at The ABC Show, and it was an amazing first day! I meet so many great people and even made some sales! Look for new OnTray retailers soon. I'm posting a picture of my booth I took earlier today. It has already changed, as I noticed some things that weren't working. I'll post a new picture in a couple of days. This has certainly been an incredible learning experience!
