How was Atlantique City for you?

Eric Bradley had this good news about Atlantique City:

The show was indeed a success despite the economic climate and the
difficult operations needs. The sentiment was universal – even among
dealers who didn’t sell a thing. Dealers were overwhelmingly impressed
with the type of buyers that came through the gate as well as the way
the staff dressed the event, got them in and out and solved their
problems on the floor. I talked to three dealers who skipped the show
but were shopping who said they made a HUGE mistake not being there.
Another dealer called on Sunday and apologized for canceling.

Most of all – The conversation among customers turned from “Is this
your last show?” to “Where is the contract and when are you setting
more details?” Despite the shaky economy, last weekend’s show gave us
a solid starting block for our next show March 27-28, 2010.

So how was Atlantique City for you?
