The beginning of October was filled with lots of recognition for Image3D at two trade shows and I had the privilege of attending both!

The first trade show took us to the famous Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Here we rocked the Motivation Show, displaying our products to people in the market of finding awesome promotional items, sales incentives, employee recognition items, and customer loyalty giveaways.

My favorite part of being at the Motivation show was watching people walk by with a straight face, catch an eye of our booth, and instantly get a smile on their face. It must be that extra extra large viewer we have displayed because it instantly brought back memories. I can't tell you how many times people would see our booth and very excitedly go, "I HAD ONE OF THOSE AS A KID!!!"

Not to mention, we were taking personalized 3D photographs! Talk about cool! People were so blown away by how cool it was to see themselves in 3D that many people brought their friends back to take more!

On our off time we visited the Navy Pier and ate WAY too much food! But of course we couldn't help ourselves as everything was so tasty!

Just as soon as I arrived back in Oregon I was on the road again headed toward Newport, a nice coastal town about 2 hours away. Here, we blew people away by showcasing our gift sets, which was perfect since this was a show geared toward state park gift shops. I went to this show with Ramona, who is an outdoorsy adventurer just like myself, so it was perfect to try and get our products in the places that we enjoy going!

I even made a bunch of demo sets with pictures from some of the parks that would be there. It was great seeing how enthusiastic they got about seeing their park on a reel!

When Ramona and I had breaks we could go to the windows that overlooked the ocean and actually see whales playing around. We both have lived here our entire lives and never seen anything quite like that! It was pretty much a non-stop spout off!

All in all, both shows were a great success! And we had a lot of fun attending them--can't wait for the next one! See more pictures on our Facebook Page!
