(Korien Sampson - AHEA's Convention Director shared the below on Facebook. I thought I would share it here as encouragement for newcomers to the Convention. The AHEA Convention is one of the biggest Conventions in Canada - if not the biggest! This year it looks like there will be a record number of attendees - perhaps over 2500! We will see.)
The AHEA Convention Exhibit Hall can be overwhelming especially to newbies.
For those who would like some help, I offer the following:
Exhibit Hall Prescription
1st Walk About: Walk the entire hall and collect catalogues and brochures. Sit down and check out the catalogues. Make notes. Plan your next trip through the hall.
2nd Walk About: Follow your plan and take notes. Ask questions. Sit down and look over your notes. Consider how you would use products. Eliminate what won't apply to you. Consider your budget. Make more notes and make a new plan.
3rd Walk About: Follow plan and budget. Start making purchases. Participate in the BUY IT HERE program with AHEA and enter your name in the draw for $100 cash prizes, plus many more.
