MOHI at the Penticton home show

Last weekend (March 9 - 11) my new business, My Online Home Inventory, exhibited at its first home. The show was in Penticton, a sleepy little retirement town about 50km south of Kelowna, on the southern shore of Lake Okanagan.

It's the first time I've exhibited at a show, so I was glad it was a small one. The show was quite successful: we spoke to many people about MOHI, including a handful of insurance agents who were very interested. We even made a sale or two! :-) The next step is to attend a larger show, either here in Kelowna, or perhaps Kamloops. More people, with better demographics (hopefully) means more sales!

The only downside was the live entertainment (Elvis impersonators and the like). Great for the punters, I'm sure, but not so great for us exhibitors who had forked out a lot of cash to be there...

Bruce (my business partner) and I stayed in the Penticton Lakeside Resort and Casino, in a room facing the lake (their web site is pretty lame; it doesn't even work with Firefox on ...). When we arrived on Friday afternoon, the sky was a beautiful blue, so I took a few photos to show off the view to Jenny. Good job too, 'cause not long after, the clouds rolled in and it was overcast the rest of the weekend.

Check out MOHI's web site and sign up today because the only thing worse than losing everything you own is not knowing what you've lost...
