ACA Conference Recap

We’re still trying to get over the whirlwind of yesterday that was the American Camp Association’s 2023 National Conference.
It felt like a swarm of bees for 2 hours in the conference booth, which made it go by so fast as we handed out program after program and tons of free swag. The expo hall was open from 9:30-4:00pm, making todays pacing much easier as we had about 8 hours of time in the booth. We value this so much because those are the best opportunities to have engaging, long conversations where you don’t feel rushed to get something tossed into a buyer’s hands. We met a ton of great people through the event and had lots of excited “contest winners” that dropped their business card into our treasure chest box. (Over 250+ cards were collected in such a short time!) We gave away a bunch of ROKU TV Streaming Sticks and JLab headphones, which coincidently two friends who separately won headed off to the gym together to test them out! ACA came to a close at 4:00pm, and just like Groundhog Day, we broke down the big display booth, packed up the materials, and packed the vehicle for the next conference, CMAA.
After a week of being in a conference booth each day (for some of our staff, not all), Friday is an off day in Orlando for a group of us to work and get caught up on calls, as the rest of the company works from their respective city. Now its time to begin follow up with all of the amazing people we have met so far to further discuss their events and start executing contracts!
Looking forward to working from the hotel tomorrow.
Write again soon.
