Here at my job, we have around four to five trade shows every year. Only one of those is our own, meaning, my company sponsors it, and then we invite all our distributors, manufacturers and merchants to participate. We have one scheduled trade show next month but the girl who is in charge of doing trade shows is pregnant. Somebody has to do her job for the meantime. She has a very delicate pregnancy so as early as her first trimester the doctor asked her to take a leave from work. The big question is who’s going to take her place?
It is not that difficult to set up a trade show. I already knew how to set up the kiosk, velvet rope and stanchions. The barricades are just on the side just in case there is a need to do a crowd control. Sometimes the organizers provide the barricades already. If I am still single, I would love to volunteer. Hey, being on a trade show is an opportunity to be away from work where hotel accommodation is provided and free food but I cannot do that these days anymore. Nobody is still volunteering but if the boss requests you, would you say yes?
