Today is the last full day and boy was it full! In the morning we had a presentation from Apple, again can’t say anything from that, then we had John Warrillow talk about how to create a business that can thrive without you. For lunch we had a sit down lunch with vendors and after we did speed dating with them. We had about 25 vendors present to us in a short 3 minutes each about product and why we should stop at their table later that night. The afternoon was filled with how to improve your marketing and the do’s and don’t’s for social media information. The person who presented works for an Apple Specialist just like us and she always has amazing things for us to bring back and put to use for our own store!
At night, we had an even bigger vendor fair then the night before! This fair was sponsored by Ingram Micro and Douglas Stewart, two of our distributors. What is neat about Douglas Stewart is that they carry unique products, nice brands and they are located in Madison, Wisconsin! So here it is, my top 3 products from the night!
3. Seagate Slim External Hard Drive – Seagate came out with a new hard drive that is not like any other. It is about as thick as a pencil, has USB 3, PC or MAC compatible, and is still a 500GB drive! Another awesome feature is that it can back up your social media pictures with just a click of a button!
2. Ogio Women’s Bag Collection – Ogio is a bag company that has been around for awhile. Most people are use to seeing their brand through athletic bags. Ogio has recently come out with a women’s line that appeals to women of all ages! They have cute styles that make the bags look like a women’s dress coat and colors that stand out! The inside lining is now a silky polka dot and no longer a plain color.
1. Pure Screen Protector by BodyGuardz – The Pure screen protector is not just your ordinary screen protector. It is a glass screen protector that fits right over your normal glass screen! It is easy to install and neat to watch it slowly move out as it’s sticking to the phone! This protector doesn’t feel cheap and doesn’t even feel like you have a protector on it because of it being made out of glass. What is nice about these screens is that if you do drop it and break the protector (yes you can break it because it is still made of glass) they don’t make you purchase a new one at full price! Come to Computer World next week and check out Larry’s phone if you want to see what it looks like!

Well that is it for the conference, Friday was all business talk and now we are just hanging out at the Austin Airport waiting for our plane and wishing we could stay down here in this warm weather for one more day to do golfing! Maybe next time.
Thanks for reading this week and I hope you liked the new product info!
