Testimonials for the Made In NH Try It and Buy It Expo
Why should your New Hampshire business be at the Made IN NH Try It and Buy It Expo? Just read what last year's exhibitors have to say:
"Our goals were to attract 2 - 3 wholesale accounts and create an awareness that we are only 20 minutes from Manchester. We accomplished both, and have already seen Expo attendees in our store."
- Tom & JR Jacobs, Freetown Yankee Food Market
"It was our first time out in a mixed market - we wanted exposure and the results were awesome!"
- Rebecca Funk, B Funky Bears
"The degree of personal attention and concern for each exhibitor is one of the reasons we love doing the Expo. We make friends with other exhibitors and look forward to seeing them each year, too. We've been doing it since the very first Made in NH Expo, and feel almost like family now!"
- Barbara Rogers, It Happened in NH
"The Expo was wonderful! We have secured even more wholesale customers than last year. The online sales are rapidly flowing in as a result of contacts and sales made at the Expo. As we grow, the Made in NH Expo continues to provide us with the perfect stage to introduce new additions to our line. The people are great, the support is outstanding and the entire weekend is one that we look forward to each spring."
- Amy Gendreau, StoLat Organics
"The contacts were worth every penny! Four retail stores approached me, and I was also contacted about doing Girls Night Out in Portsmouth. Yeah!"
- Judy Callen, Designs on the Rocks
"Expo was my first show two years ago and I'm committed to attend each year. My goal (this year) was to test the market for upscale, organic bath soaps. The product was very well received. I met more business associates than I ever imagined!"
- Elayne Belkas, Elayne’s Garden Bath and Body, LLC
"Great experience. We sold product and had good networking. I also learned what to do to better display my product. The Expo staff and volunteers were great."
- Brad Englehardt, Knot-Again
"Securing one wholesale account covered the total cost of the show."
- Emeran Langmaid, A&E Roastery
"(We) felt that the pre-show contact was very personal and tailored to our needs. We did not feel like just a booth number as with most shows!
- Randy Knowles, Fine Art by Shaunna Duffy Smith and Randy Knowles
"(There was) a lot of foot traffic to meet our newest anchors and reporters."
- Alex Jasiukowicz, WMUR-TV, Channel 9
"We will definitely exhibit next year as we have for the past three to four years. (Expo) has been a good event for us."
- Crystal Nadeau, Goodbrain Academy
"Great attendance helped us reach as many people as possible and distribute VIP coupons. Overall, it was a great event for us. EventsNH had a great and helpful staff to work with."
- Erin Nakunas, Canobie Lake Park
"The Expo staff was professional, accommodating and an absolute pleasure in helping me as a first time exhibitor. The Pre-show marketing was excellent exposure. The orders are coming in for the Industry and it’s less than two weeks after the show."
- Bill Covatis, New Hampshire Correctional Industries
"Our goal was to remind residents that the New Hampshire Union Leader is their newspaper. We were fortunate to have many people stop and talk to us. Your staff is so friendly and helpful. I would not change a thing."
- Katie McQuaid, New Hampshire Union Leader
