TechnoRV Launches at the Good Sam Rally

Both Tracey and I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and helped make the company launch so successful.

It was a real pleasure to meet so many of you and get such great feedback about our products and what we're doing. We look forward to meeting you again at our upcoming shows and hearing from you and your suggestions by email.

Neither of us can believe that it's over - TechnoRV is officially launched. I can’t think how much preparation went into it, it seems like all we’ve done for the last month!

The good news is that everything came together as we’d hoped. Despite a non-ideal location (we registered late), our stand looked one of the most professional at the show, and was the envy of many other exhibitors, especially our scrolling banner (one chap said that he was going to order six of them from us!) and the flooring. In fact, a number of people came on our booth just to stand on the floor - it was so comfortable! Tracey had found it on the internet; it looked like a wooden floor but was actually made from interlocking tiles of cushioning plastic. Wonderful to stand on, especially as Tracey and I were on our feet pretty much from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. without even a lunch break!

As those of you how attended know, the show was very well attended, despite the New Mexico weather (it actually snowed on Saturday!). According to the organizers there were over 3,000 RV’s and 8,000 attendees a day at the show! Their favorite products were Locket, a flash drive with software to help you enter information you might need in an emergency, our LED Caps, and our range of flashlights.

Now it's all over and we're off to the 2009 Escapees Escapade in Sedalia, Missouri!
