Imaging USA 2010 was held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center. Did you know it is the largest non-gaming, in-hotel convention center in the world? It’s true, and I know because I walked it. It’s truly a unique facility. Where else do you have an interior balcony that overlooks a waterfall? Check out these iPhone pictures taken by our CEO Kevin Casey.

In addition to the facilities, there were three things that I loved most about Imaging USA 2010:

Showing Off Products I have worked at Collages.net for five years. I love our products. I am proud of each of our products and love to see the reaction that they receive. The Collages.net Brilliant Album and matching High Gloss Book was a traffic stopper. We very smartly put the album close to the aisle. People couldn’t help but stop and take a closer look. If you haven’t already purchased a sample for your bridal shows this year, you should get one. It has a fast turnaround time – five business days plus shipping.

Below is Amy Raab of Amy Raab Photography with a sample of our matte finish book where we used her images. If you remember, we did a studio interview with Amy a few months ago.

Meeting Current Customers Meeting our photographers is by far one of my favorite things. Over the years, I have spoken with hundreds of studios and watched them grow. Each studio I speak with has a different style and personality that makes their studio unique. Below are just a few of the several friends who stopped by.

Meeting New Customers Of course, one of the reasons that Collages.net attends tradeshows is to meet new customers. This made my top three favorites because I love to see the look that appears on the faces of studio owners when they realize that Collages.net will save them time and money. There is this joyful look of disbelief and hope on their face because they knew that there must be an easier solution than working with five or more different vendors. They know they have finally found that solution with Collages.net. I just love it! If you were an attendee, what did you like about Imaging USA?
