SIA Denver

Thursday, January 27th, 2011 | Current | No Comments

If I’m learning anything at these trade shows, it’s that trade shows are a Big Deal. The amount of work that goes into putting together a trade show (or any convention, I imagine) is huge. Two days before the trade show starts all the crates get moved in, overhead signs set up and the booth building begins.

It’s a tangled mess of crates, boxes, packing material, real-sized erector sets, forklifts & people. Everyone has there own chaos to deal with and many of the booths are truly built and disassembled each trade show. An impressive change happens over those two days and, assuming I don’t get kicked out for trying to take pictures, I may have some to share of the final results since today is the first day of the SIA convention.

Skadi Nordic will be playing a supporting role in the Swix booth. And if you’ve seen any of our new products yet you know I really do mean supporting.

skadi nordic ski tie squishedThe new Skadi Nordic ski tie is so amazing. I can’t even get over it. I’m so in love with it! It stays on better than any ski tie I’ve ever used. I know I’m biased but I think it truly is the perfect ski tie!

Devil’s Thumb Ranch

Hooray… we get to go to the SIA On-Snow Demo at Devil’s Thumb Ranch. I have to be in the Skadi Nordic booth during the demo hours 9am-4pm… that still gives me lots of time to go skiing right? right?!?!

So I guess what I’m saying is that anyone who wants to come do a midday stint as a Skadi Nordic rep at the On-Snow demo is more than welcome to come take my place for an hour or two…
