A busy time in Atlanta
The first evening of SAWC was very busy with lots of visitors to our booth, and the trend continued on days 2 and 3. We met lots of our old friends, many people introduced themselves as users of Saljet, and we made new friends. It is always heart warming to meet Saljet users as Howard and I have introduced Saljet to the USA one trade show at time over the last sixteen years.
Atlanta has been a joy to visit, the people are all so friendly and fun that it makes our hectic schedule easier to cope with. We were last in Atlanta 4 years ago and it is a city on the move with lots of construction bringing people back to the city center to live.
Our next exhibition appearance
The sheer size of America still stuns me especially when we are travelling to and from trade shows. We left home in Boca at 10am and arrived at our hotel in Atlanta at 5.30pm and that without any time change! Mind you we are the sort of people who like to leave lots of time for contingencies. We went for a meal at a TexMex restaurant in Atlanta which was one of the best we have been to for a long time, nice and spicy.
SAWC starts tonight at 5.30pm, lots of sample packs to make up first! Tonight we get to meet some old friends and make new ones.
A trip to Atlanta and SAWC
Yellow seems to be the color of spring whichever side of the pond we are. We have gone from the yellow of daffodils in Cheltenham to the yellow of the Mimosa tree in Boca Raton. So we have been home in Boca for just a few days after our time in Orlando and now we are off to Atlanta for the SAWC to tell the delegates about the benefits of Saljet. We will be in Atlanta until Sunday when it is back to Orlando for the next sales meeting
Back in the USA and it's time for business
Now we have the pleasure of being in Orlando to attend a distributor sales meeting which was held outside, a bit dodgy given the Florida weather can sometimes turn to heavy rain in an instant. All went well, the weather behaved apart from being windy, and we had great fun talking to the sales people about the benefits of Saljet.
Orlando is the first place we visited in the States back in 1989 and we have visited many times since which means that it always feels like coming home when we arrive! Strange when we have never lived in Orlando!
The great thing is we have the best of both worlds
The great thing is we have the best of both worlds. We have a condo in a town called Cheltenham, famous for the Gold Cup horse event, just outside the Cotswolds. We spend time in England to see our family and friends so get to see the lovely countryside and wonderfulgardens that the Brits love to cherish.
We spent Easter in England to see the grandkids Easter egg hunt and to enjoy the wonderful daffodils which are planted in both town and country.
