It was quite the event, well produced and seemed to be very well attended. I got to the show at 2:30 and arrived to a packed parking lot and a lot of busy exhibitors. In the following paragraphs and upcoming few posts I will outline some of my personal highlights of the show:
After one trip up the aisle I saw some familiar faces and some new ones as well. William Quigley, owner of the Washington House and Sellersville Theater, and active participant in many area Chambers was displaying for both the restaurant and theater and really talked up the new renovations currently being undertaken to the theater. The marquee was retired and the lobby is being expanded along with a new deck. The design is crisp and maintains the look and feel of the 1800's horse stable.
Another booth I took great interest in was the North Penn Art booth. They had on display a variety of framing techniques and options showing off both pictures and jersey frames they can do. The woman I spoke to was very helpful and seemed quite interested in her job.
More to come tomorrow, but the overall reports are very good. As I get to know the people in the Upper Montgomery County area more I am starting to see more and more I like. I am going to join another chamber this year and I think I have it narrowed down to two choices!
