If you didn't make it out to the 2013 Snow Show & Sale in Milwaukee this past weekend, you missed out on a good time and a lot of really great deals! It was definitely the place to be. GearUp2Go hadn't participated in this particular show in the past but based on the turnout and the success we had, I'm pretty sure you'll find us there again next year.
The 2013 Snow Show & Sale took place in the 170,000 sq. ft. Wisconsin Exposition Center, located right inside the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in downtown Milwaukee. There were almost 200 exhibitors at the show and record attendance numbers. I don't have an official grand total, but based on a couple of the daily totals I heard, I estimate over 20,000 people attended the show!
We had some of Cortech's latest snow jackets and bibs which were both a big hit. Travis from Divas SnowGear was in our booth most of the weekend to help answer customer questions about their new 2014 line of snow gear. It was fun to get to know him and Wendy. Her expertise in the initial setup of our booth was awesome! Of course, when you have a couple of guys in charge of booth setup, having a woman's insight is always welcome.
Congratulations to Andy McGinnis who won our 2013 Snow Show drawing for a free Snow Dollie set by Pure Polaris. Several folks tried their luck at the drawing by entering their name and email/phone and tossing their slip into the helmet. The drawing was then held at 3pm on Sunday and Andy was the lucky winner.
Thanks to all who stopped by our 2013 Snow Show booth to say, "Hi" and to check things out. We had a blast and hope to see y'all again next year!
If you have any thoughts on other items you'd like to see in our booth next year, let us know.
