CSAE Tête-à-Tête Convention 2018 | A Resounding Success!

Anyone who’s ever experienced life in a small business knows that you don’t have to look far to see who does what. The smaller the business the more you know that it’s likely you who’s responsible to get things done – a blessing and a curse.  Most of the time I consider it a blessing.

While I can’t do everything, everything is an opportunity.  For example, Brougham participated as an exhibitor this year in the CSAE Tête-à-Tête Convention. I've not done many trade shows in the past but decided to commit fully to this conference ~ and I'm very glad I did.

 We were so pleased so many people stopped to chat and learn about our industry.

Absolutely everything about this exhilarating day was a positive and valuable experience for Brougham Promotional Products. The keynote speakers shared their knowledge and offered tools that could help any business grow from the inspiration they imparted. The Debaters truly entertained a sold-out crowd over the lunch hour, and we returned to our booths with big smiles from laughing so much.

 Debating which is better: real people face to face or online Facetime? Face to face won!

With the help of my communications company hennemannstanley.com, the help of the Promotional Products Professionals of Canada https://www.promocan.com, and Debco and Stormtech two of the biggest suppliers in the Promotional Products industry in Canada http://www.debcosolutions.com , https://www.stormtech.ca (with honourable mention to St Regis Group- https://ca.stregisgrp.com), I think the people of the association and NFP world found what we offer very interesting and valuable.

I’ve done this show before, but the location was new this time and was held at the EY Centre. Brougham also had a bigger booth and had its new visual branding in place. I was excited and hoped everything would run as well as we had hoped. My hopes were indeed realized and surpassed! Congratulations to all those at CSAE who made this 2018 convention such a great success!   http://www.csaeteteatete.ca

 Many, many booths filled the gigantic hall, but this one struck me with its inspirational igloo representing the Northwest Territories. Super representatives as well!
