ISA Vegas 2019 Trip

Recommended Posts

As Usual, we don't spend that much time at the actual "show". 


We got in Wednesday about Noon'ish.  Dropped in the show to see a few people then ran out of there. 


Spending some quality time together was more needed than seen the "same ol"  It was also the start of the NFL Draft and it was hard to pull Kirstie away from Sports bar TV's showing who was going where.











We had dinner with some good friends and it's always a good mixed balance of family and work.





Thursday was our "business" day and we squeezed just about everything we could the first two days.







Then more playing of course










Friday was our "Alone Time", phone off with only Pool Time, more NFL Draft, and more playing










The ISA Show was very "Up Beat" and they did a very good job of keeping it "High Energy" up until the time you walk through the main show entry.  Nothing new to see if you're a sign veteran, the floor seemed a little smaller and traffic seemed smaller compared to years past but that's not the point for NOT coming to the show.


Everyone should make an effort and a point to come to the show, being in the electric sign industry you NEED to be there, PLUS.....it's a perfect venue to meet members of the Sign Syndicate that you have regular discussions with talk about the things you can't on the board.  We had the pleasure to meet up with some new faces, and of course old faces.


We haven't been to an ISA show in 2 years, and there was something I was reminded of.  It's been two years and within that gap I tend to get too comfortable in that span, get lazy in what I do here on The Sign Syndicate.  In my conversations it was good to hear about "Why" they visit, participate and find The SS is a important tool.  This show served as a reminder, it served as a kick in the ass as NOT to let my/our foot off the gas.  I think hearing that did Kirstie & I some good.  Hearing it all only motivated me, I think that year off didn't do me any favors, when I don't skip a year the wheels keep turning, but sadly last year or the wheels stopped and went.


One conversation was brought up about the National Sign Company Meet and Greet.  For those that attended then you'll know it wasn't a good venue to show up to expect a good conversation with more than one National.  There were a lot of lines and it was pretty much "Speed Dating".


My advice, save yourself a trip next year and just simply visit our National Sign & Service Review List and just jot down all the Names and submit them a vendor package.  That way you don't have to wait in line and you can reach everyone and more than are actually there and you WON'T have to waste your time meeting up with a "no-payer".  No National is going to remember you or what you said to them trying to sell yourself.


So I guess there is one more Orlando show left, then it's off to Georgia, ugh.....why can't Georgia just start next year?  :wallbash:
