This weekend I was involved with my local ASID chapter to host a booth at the Northern California Home and Landscape Expo, the largest in our area for the year. 30,000 people pass through the many exhibits and most stopped by our beautiful booth.
Our objective was to expose the ASID brand and our designers to the public and we were quite successful. We offered 30 minute complimentary consultations which had our designers busy! Many clients brought photos, plans and questions to ask our expert designers regarding their projects and homes. A few only needed the 30 minutes for some direction and confirmation that they are proceeding on the right track with their project. Most were touching the tip of the iceberg for some potential projects.
We also had a sample sale selling pillows and remnant fabrics, a favorite with many DIYers.
We had a great time working together and talking with the public about our profession.
