Get and Send Messages

FEMA ConventionSince we’re all about communications I had to take a picture of this message center.

It’s out in the foyer area in front of the registration counter.

One of the things you get when you register is a number that identifies you. It’s used as a mechanism to send you a message.

That’s about all I know about it at the moment. I’ll look into it further and update this post if I have more to offer.

The Center of Communications

FEMA ConventionOne of the first things I ran into here at the FEMA convention was the communications center. It’s a big room with lots of tables so you can meet up and have a nice chat which a bunch of folks were doing.

In it you’ll find things like this Information Center which lists companies who’s services FEMA endorses.

There’s also an interesting set of boards listing members and who is here representing the company. It even has a place for their room number if they care to share it. I don’t think I’ve seen that before.

Getting Started at FEMA

FEMA ConventionWhat’s the first thing you do when you go to a convention? That’s right.

I got into Minneapolis yesterday evening. It was kind of drizzly and cool. Better than snow and ice. The weather should be nice here by this afternoon and it looks like we’re going to have a midwest warmup for a couple days.

Batting For Better Sales

Association of Equipment ManufacturersEquipment manufacturers are gearing up for their annual marketing seminar. This year it will take place June 4-6 at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MD. This is a pretty full scale marketing conference and since they’re going to Camden Yards for a baseball game the theme is “Take Me Out To The Marketplace.” That competitive challenge the Orioles face is much like the one any business faces as well.
