When I go to big trade shows I start out wanting to be kinda stylish and by the end I wish I had a wheel chair. Any suggestions?
Depends! Are you going to be on your feet all day, or will you have a chance to sit? I know I need a solid pair of shoes when standing all day… fancy shoes kill me.
I love these trade shows, hate the pain. I have no shame and will wear sneakers while wandering the trade show floor. I have some heels, but only wear those for the after parties, if at all.
One thing that can help if you’re working a booth is to have one of those squishy floor mats to help. That way you’re not standing on concrete covered only by the thinnest carpet that the hotel can find.
it take s a real man to admit that
yes, I had those in my kitchen… wore them out and never replaced. I think my role will be more of a roamer
I remember my first one years ago at Javitz… starting out like “sex in the city” ending up like “working girl” sneakers and skirt!
Ha ha–well, that says VEGAS!.. do they come in small chunky heel? ;0
After working many trade shows, and a couple of show rooms, I can say it is all about the squishy mats or lush floor padding!
Would love to meet up! My email is [email protected] There are some women in cannabis meet-ups!
Come visit Boveda at booth #3510, we have the extra padding and chairs
That would be great. I’m new to this land. My email is [email protected] btw… Going for my black faux velvet, Vans like shoes. My break out the Camper wedges if I’m feeling frosty.
writing that down
That reminds me, one of the best vendor sponsorships I’ve seen at a conference is free chair massages. Nothing like getting a massage after having to walk around a show floor all day.
I’ll be sure to stop by
Comfy ankle boots without a heel work well.
I am absolutely new here (first post)…but my history with trade shows means sneakers and change them every couple of hours - gel inserts help too. Glad to find the ladies on here - being in the steel business, I don’t run into many/enough!
