Overall we were pleased with the outcome and the attention that we received at the Expo. The Chamber estimated a little over 1000 attendees were there. We were giving away an Apple TV as part of a raffle that we threw. We’ll have another post on the winner next week, when we complete the photo opp and actually give the winner the Apple TV. We would like to thank everyone who did participate in the Apple TV raffle as well.

For a software company, we were happy with the attention the booth attracted. A lot of expo goers stopped by to inquire about our services and products and how they can fit into their business. Most expos like this, people tend to shy away from the tech companies…… Maybe it was the Apple TV.

We would like to thank Mark Warner at Digital Marketing Source for the booth and graphics. We would also like to thank Bill Muller at Renaissance Management Inc. for the carpeting and the padding.
