Thoughts on the World Tea Expo

We had a great time at the World Tea Expo 2010. This was the second time we've exhibited and the first time the conference was held in the Las Vegas Convention Center. At first I was a little concerned that the venue was not as appealing as the Mandalay Bay, but perhaps the only difference was that we had further to travel to go to a nice place for drinks or meals.

Our overall traffic was a little off from last year - this was expected. We continue to see strong interest in our organic teas, contract blends, and private label tea bags.

We did have a chance to go out on the Las Vegas strip more than last year. We visited the new Aria at City Center TWICE! It's such a nice hotel - we hope to stay there next time we're up in Vegas. There's a great british pub, Todd English at City Center. Give it a try. I liked the Arbor beer from England, and I wouldn't even consider myself a beer drinker.

Let me know if you have questions about our experiences at the WTE. Overall, it's a time to meet our clients and talk tea. We've already signed up for next year - exhibiting at the same booth space slightly later in June 2011.
