    Ok, I been asked to do a expo Friday and Saturday cost is $225.00.
    I am going to join in with 2 other consultants but we are all new at booths.
    Besides what was said under this thread. I need details.
    Do I purchase items to sell? Try to get bookings of course but how do I promote it? Details please.:confused:

    Debbie I personally would set it up like any other booth that I have. Is the expo for people looking for jobs or is it like a variety of business booth's that you would see at a fair?

    I set up at a job fair last this weekend. We took all the items that are in the new consultant kit and set it up just like the picture in the back of the catalog. We gave out a lot of the flyers that the company has about recruiting.
    I'm starting to make calls in about 30 minutes. (after I fix supper)
    A lot of people said they wanted to sell Pampered Chef, but actually shelling out $155 and signing is another thing! I guess I'll find out!

    Okay - love the flyer, but it won't let me correct the spelling error.

    Do you think you could change Benefist to Benefits, and then repost it?


    I just love to make you extra work, don't I?:eek:

    I love this flyer - thanks for posting! I'm doing a mini booth this weekend at and H&R Block event. I plan to use the "Now Hiring" board I found here and the flyer you posted! Now's the time to do booths when people are looking for jobs - IMO.

    My question is Why can't I work with documents you post?:confused:

    I do it with other ones all the time - and yours shouldn't be any different. It's just strange!

    I have done two business expos and have run it as any regular fair I do. However, I have been fortunate that the business expos I have done were in my own town and free to local businesses. The town paid for everything from advertising to canopies. They even had some old time NE Patriots and Red Sox players come for autographs and talks. As well as the NFL Pass, Punt and Kick competion. (Last years theme was Team Spirit) They have live music and an "Idol" contest. Oh and an antique car show. They have a great turnout and so much fun. But best part is it was free. We have not heard this year but my guess is because of the cutbacks it won't be free this year LOL

    I had a lot of leads... I haven't had any sign up yet. I got a catalog show out of it so far. I had three that seemed real serious about it. So far they haven't actually put up the money for the kit. I think that's what's holding them back.
    I had one in particular that I gave all the information to. She called me back and asked a lot of questions. The last thing she said was that she was going to talk to her husband and now I can't get a hold of her!!! I think her husband must have talked her out of it!!! :cry:
