The International Surface Event is the biggest flooring convention in the country. As the 5th largest convention facility in the US, the Mandalay Bay Convention Center is the annual location of choice for this event.
In this 3-day event I had the opportunity to work next to other Business Reps from DC5 and DC36, great guys, so experienced, friendly and passionate about this job.
I listened to a couple of the talks that other exhibiters provided, Adam Singer, spoke about the importance of a great and frictionless delivery, I was able to translate that to my position and gain a lot of tips regarding the importance of having a system that would systemize a lot of your tasks so you can go out and be with the members, listening to them, helping them.
Another talk was about “how to learn from past failures”, it was great to know new strategies of how to learn faster every time and reduce that learning curve that we all struggle with at some point.
It definitely was a great experience, one of our journeymen won the competition on LVP, the other one on carpet got second place, all of the finalists worked really hard to finish and honestly, all of them were winners in the eyes of everyone, so proud of them bringing the Union together in an event this big, over 6,000 booths! Dozens of people watching them every second, and being able to deliver the way they did, it was amazing.
