Chamber Of Commerce Trade Show

We had some real fun last week!

At the invitation of the Charlotte Chamber Of Commerce, we set up a booth (see photo) at Business Showcase 2008. This was held April 2 at Liberty Hall in the Charlotte Merchandise Mart and attracted some 1,500 busimess leaders from the greater Charlotte area.

This was a great opportunity for us to meet representatives from some of the top companies in the area. Without exception, everyone that stopped by our boot was astounded to learn that when they place an order (usually online) with a Phony Florist that some 40% to 50% of THEIR MONEY gets eaten up in fees and commissions!

I had HOPED to be able to take a picture of the booth "live" during the show, but we were so busy with customers that I didn't get the chance! But this modest little booth was filled from start to finish.
