I would like to know everyone's opinion on issues or concerns for the ITA show!!Although this was my first time attending I felt that the show was very organized. I met alot of people behind the scenes of companies we do business with and salon owners and I can honestly say that the tanning industry has a great deal of friendly, helpful people!!The only concern I had was the coupon book....Maybe it's just me, but it had no sense of order. Not numeric or alphabetic.....Did I miss something?????Otherwise, I enjoyed the total experience. ------------------Tracie WilliamsSandollar Corporation

I agree with you, the show was a wonderful experience, but the coupon book was hard to follow. I would think alphabetical order would be easier to use and less confusing.

This was my first ITA trade show also. I really enjoyed it.However, I did'nt understand why they did the coupon books. I have been to other typesof Trade Shows that did'nt use this system.There were really long lines at the ITA show,and everyone who purchased a ticket didn'tneccisarily get a coupon book.In any event, it was a great experience for me. I appreciate the fact that I work for acompany that cares enough to send their employees to these functions.

This was my first show & it was very nice! But, please put the coupon book in alphabetical order. That took up so much time...time that we could've been visiting a booth. Also, it would be nice if you didn't have to be present to win the $20,000 or they could've had the drawing earlier. Don't they know we have to go home sometime? Does anyone know who won?In the workshops, many people would ask questions & you didn't have a clue what they asked because you couldn't hear them. It would be nice if the presenter would repeat the question so we could all learn.The Beach Boys were great! And I only got lost at the Opryland Hotel maybe a dozen times! Got my exercise!

Get a life. Can't you handle a little coupon book thats out of order? Get a grip! The stuff is FREE! Long lines were from 7000+ people at the show. The coupons gave the manufactures control of their product give-away, and the abuility to provide us with excellent and valuable stuff, not just little samples. Besides, usually without the coupons the people who are first to the show get all the good stuff, than send their employees back 10 times and clean it out. More than once I've seen salon owners carrying enough lotion stock out of a show that they wouldn't neet to order lotion for two months. Have a nice day.

Thank you Ginger!! I do have a life and my "GRIP" is this....I don't have a issue with the reason behind the coupon book.....Read Carefully!! It should have been in some sort of order. I understand that the products were free and the coupon book offered some control by prohibiting multiple employees at one resort receiving products and others missing out. But as Ginger so plainly put it..It wasted too much time that could have been spent on visiting booths and getting educated on new products and tanning units. Had the coupon book been in order then we could have started on one row and continued until we were finished. I missed alot of booths and walked blisters on my foot trying to walk one end of the show floor to the other. We finally tore the coupons out and arranged them in numeric order and that left us with dropping and losing half of them.The show was great.. But not everyone or everything is perfect... I wouldn't think they would mind feedback to help with future shows.It's okay there was a small flaw, don't be so sensitive..... ------------------Tracie WilliamsSandollar Corporation

Supre (and others) were totally out of samples at 11:30 Friday morning! Where is the control in that? It was crappy.[This message has been edited by chunn (edited October 31, 2000).]
