Hey everyone! I was told by a Creative Memories consultant about our local hospitals having a nurse's week. Well, I called the contact yesterday and she just called back to let me know that I can set up a booth. Well, guess what, I'm in! I'm getting a booth from 2-7 on Monday and Wednesday and at both hospitals, there should be 100-200 contacts within that time period. I'm so excited but I'm not sure what I should bring. I know that I will be provided with a 6 foot table and the only stipulation is that I can't sell on the hospital premises.

Has anyone done anything like this, and if so, how did you handle it?;) Any tips and ideas will be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you so much in advance! This helps since I can't get in on the Babies R Us thing! :rolleyes:

When is nurse's week?
Is this at all hospital's around the country?
Who is the contact person? What is their title?
Are they having other booths/tables set up?

Thanks for sharing!

At my hospital it's this week! Only 1 day to really plan for it because I had a fair at our local church today! Ahh!! I'm not sure what angle to go for, investment cooking, spa ideas, 30 minute meals, entertaining with Simple Addi+ions?

Please, any ideas are greatly appreciated!!


Yes, they are having other booths set up like massage therapists, Creative Memories and I'm not sure of the others that are invited. I will be set up in the main lobby so not only will I have the nurses but the patients visitors as well. Please help me! :eek: :eek:

Make sure you have a Theme Show Binder/Board and a Book to Look Box or Board. I purchased a really great banner from the Merrill Corp for a good price, you might want to look into getting one of those or borrowing one from your director. Have flyers offering a free 'ice cream social' or 'office party' this summer. The way it works is they collect $150 in outside orders and you provide a free ice cream party for thier office. At the party you can do the potatoe demo (another good idea for nurse's day since you can do it anywhere), and collect more orders. If you're allowed to give away food, have a few of your favorite recipes displayed on the three tier stand. Free food is always a crowd pleaser!

Thanks Valerie! I kept putting off making a theme show binder until I read your post. I made it this morning and had a few people who looked through it today and commented so thank you for putting a fire under me!!:D Well, I am happy to say that I did pretty well today. I couldn't take orders on the hospital grounds but everyone seemed excited to know they could place an order until Friday and someone would win host benefits. We'll see how I do! Out of all the hospital staff, 65 filled out door prize slips and 13 checked off that they wanted to do a kitchen show! 13!!!! That's more than I've gotten from any fair!! I also got 5 catalog shows, 10 who want to place an order and the rest didn't check anything off! I can't wait to see how I do on Wednesday at the other hospital. I'm so excited to call everybody to see how I do! I'll keep you updated!! Thanks for all of the suggestions!!:D

Yes, nurses week is a yearly thing. I am an RN, the hospitals take recognition give us small gifts and feed us at our hosp. It's really nice.
