Getting a Pulse of the Home Building Market
Hey everyone this is Anthony Mclean here. On the insistence and slight hot poker prodding of my boss Eric Spurt, I sheepishly trotted down to the Calgary Home and Interior Design Show which runs from September 17-20 at the BMO Centre at Stampede Park, Calgary, Alberta.
At first I was slightly reluctant because he wanted me to go down there and interview the booth presenters so we could get the pulse of the bathroom retail market. I’m not a timid guy but I must admit the thought of interviewing all those people did overwhelm me.
The funny thing is as soon as I started walking around and saw some of the great stuff that was on display down there, it was a natural thing to ask questions about them. So as it tuned out, in the five and a half hours that I was down there I managed to acquire about twenty-one different interviews with a number of the vendors.
Some of the interviews were brief while others were a little more in-depth. Some are specifically bathroom orientated while others could be incorporated into your bathroom decor. All in all, I totally enjoyed myself.
An Enlightening Experience
I actually had a blast interviewing these individuals from all different parts of the bathroom industry and I can’t wait till the next Calgary Home and Garden Show is scheduled to exhibit.
You can bet I’ll be down there, this time I’ll bring my camcorder as well so that you can actually get a feel of the atmosphere and get a glimpse of the products and services offered by these vendors from the bathroom industry. So mark your calendar and expect to be wowed by the great stuff that’s going to be there. I am soooo looking forward to it!
Anyway, there is a lot of material to go through, so in the next couple weeks we will bring you some of the interviews I secured down at the Calgary Interior Home Design Show. Don’t expect any slick presentations because I don’t plan on editing it too much.
These are real people just having a conversation about some interesting products and services. I had a good time and learned some new things hopefully you will too.
