This is the first time in four years that I will not be able to personally attend this fantastic convention in Springfield Missouri.
This was the second convention focused on comics and gaming that I’d ever been to. I’d read a lot (channeling my inner Hermione Granger, perhaps?) about conventions, and thought they seemed interesting and fun. But I never saved up enough money for the vacation aspect required to go to most conventions. That was, until I found out about the one in our city that was hosted every year.
I decided that I wanted to try and promote Qiwi Trails, my small business ran with two friends focused on small business consulting and web hosting. We were relatively new to the convention scene at that time, and so we just walked around, talking to various people, and having a good time. It was memorable, we enjoyed it, and came up with a lot of good contacts to talk with about hosting in the future.
It was a good event, and we decided that we wanted to return every year. Qiwi Trails is a sponsor for Springfield G.A.M.E. this year, but I won’t be the one representing the company. I’m considering getting my guys T-Shirts with our name stitched onto it so that they’ll be recognizable when they are walking the floor. Or maybe just baseball caps or something.
What do you think I should do to help ensure that we are remembered?
