The annual Tri-Cities Women's Expo was this weekend at Meadowview Marriott Convention Center, between Kingsport and Johnson City. Medowview is frequently the scene of good programs and the Meadowview Sunday brunch is a great place for friends to get together after worship. The Friday night seafood buffet is a favorite also.
There were over a hundred displays and booths to introduce attendees to everything from facials and makeup to health and wellness to financial planning to travel. There were cooking exhibits, yoga demonstrations, fashion shows, free health screenings, lots of prizes.
I met a lot of people and gave out a lot of cards. I find that people keep the cards with the calendar on the back and I was able to leave a stack of them at the booths of several folks I enjoyed visiting with. Only one exhibitor actually said she would be buying soon, but who knows what will come from the others who agreed to give to someone later whatever cards they didn't give away at the show. (I usually put the calendar side up in display racks and have tested - more disappear that way than when I'm one face among a lot of others who also sell real estate.)
Jan Scibor had a mouthwatering and beautiful display of her chocolate products. I had more than my share of samples. I wholeheartedly recommend the chocolates - great gifts if you can make yourself give them away. See www.chocolate-elegance.com . I met Jan at Newcomers and got acquainted at Garden Club. My garden has some of her acuba and she has some of my stuff. Looking at the decorated and lighted luminaria at the cancer walk last year, I discovered that she also was a survivor. And in the background of her booth was a big pink ribbon balloon. I'm always glad to see another survivor thriving.
Jennifer Chisum and her husband were publicizing her Mountain Yoga with information and a chance for a free month. She did a great demonstration of exercises one can do at a desk to relax and limber up from the effects of too much hunching over computer. Her sense of humor and relaxed presentation impressed the crowd, and certainly her tall, slender and limber body was inspiring.
Sherry Carden was demonstrating the Essential Oils they tell people about in monthly programs. In addition to the good information, it's impressive to hear people in the audience tell their personal experiences. I didn't speak up, but a quick rub relieved my jaw pain a while back and it hasn't recurred and I hope to attend the class on Essential Oils of the Bible next week.
I left some cards at the Bath Fitter booth and reminded the attendant that the company had joined our Chamber of Commerce at my invitation. The Chamber is of course a great way to meet people, and the membership committee may be the best part of that.
One never knows what happens to a lot of marketing efforts, but any day that lets me meet new friends and put a few more cards in circulation is a good one.
