Whew! The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity around the ‘ville as we prepare to travel to Atlanta for the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2012 Annual Conference and Exposition. And the fun is only beginning! We’re bringing our 20x20 island booth to the expo hall, and you can visit the place for daily recognition in booth #2005. Next week Sunday-Tuesday will be full of conversations with attendees, networking, learning, and receptions. We're going to be very busy in Atlanta!
If you’ve been to a SHRM Annual Conference in the past few years, you’re well aware that we love to talk to attendees about our day-to-day recognition solutions. We know that regular expressions of appreciation can have a significant impact on employee engagement, motivation, and retention. Read our white paper on the topic for more information.
We encourage managers to give regular feedback to employees with our day-to-day tools, but we want to celebrate big accomplishments, too. This year our booth will also feature a collection from our vast trophy and award offering. Many of our trophies were exclusively designed by our artists, so you can’t get them anywhere else. Plus, we engrave and ship same day for fast service that accommodates even the tightest deadlines.
1. Delicious Cupcakes.
Once again, we’ll have beautiful and tasty cupcakes in our booth to celebrate the opening of the show on Sunday night. This year, the cupcakes are from Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes in Marietta, Georgia. Fun fact about Miss Mamie’s: she’s a Food Network Cupcake Wars Champion! The cupcakes are always a hit, so if you want to get a taste of Miss Mamie’s delicacies, stop by EARLY on Sunday!
2. Cool Totes.
Our tote bags are a hot commodity at the conference, and we typically run out by the end of the day Monday! This year, our bags are going to fly out of the booth even faster! We’ve created a mini-tote with a new sentiment, “May the Fabulous Be With You.” Watch out, they’ll be zooming around the exhibit hall!
3. Witty Shirts.
Every year we create new shirts for our staff to wear with fun sentiments that reflect the attitude and atmosphere of Baudville. We have some great ones this year! Meet each Baudvillian in booth 2005 to see them all!
4. Great Conversations.
We have a lot of fun in the Baudville booth, but we also have conversations with attendees about solutions for their businesses. Are you concerned about losing top performers in the talent war? Talk to one of our recognition specialists on how you can make them feel appreciated and make them stay.
5. Innovative Products.
Our products take center stage at the SHRM Annual Conference. It’s not unusual for attendees to suddenly stop in the middle of the aisle because they’ve spotted our Cheers Kits, Shout Outs, or one of our theme recognition displays. Visiting our booth is one of the few opportunities customers have to see our products in person before making a purchase. Don’t miss it!
We’re excited to meet you at the SHRM 2012 Annual Conference! See you there!
