As I wrap up 2022, I have been looking forward and what that means for the new year. It dawned on me that I’m going to be entering my 20th year of organizing vendor events. I’m completely blown away by how quickly time has passed and that while I’ve been doing this for 20 years, I’m still just 29 (wink).
I’ve had some successes and failures, as one does, but my biggest win is the relationships that I’ve built over the years. I’ve seen people bring their kids to events and let them chill out with a DVD player to watch movies and now those same kids are getting married. I have vendors that have been with me since the beginning and while the companies they represent may change, they are always there, smiling and ready to rock the next event. We’ve even lost some vendors who have passed, but their memories, photos and stories remain in the event pages and comments.
It’s been a wonderful 20 years. I can’t wait to hit the next milestone.
