i met a lot of people in the industry from distributors to sales reps, managers and some technicians. i even got to tour a metal facility where doors and frames are fabricated and prepared for customers. almost a scene out of some terminator movie or something with the robotics involved in the process. i probably looked like a fucking idiot with the huge smile on my face during the whole tour, but really it was a lot to take in and understand everything. at the conference, while i was really enjoying everything i was doing and seeing, there were toomanypeopleicouldeverpossiblyhandle, but i was really trying to be social. each person ended up scanning my badge for future contact im assuming. i chatted up with a lot of people about their products and what not. but holy fuck next time i should suit up or something. i had asked about dress code before but i was advised to just be myself and wear whatever i feel comfy in. i brought my avalanches hoodie and wore that proudly, but i did feel a little out of place considering everyone was looking slick af.
super thankful for this opportunity that was presented to me. i really do have the best boss anyone could ever want. same with my crew. i hear the vegas trips are 100x more savage than the toronto conference. maybe ill get my passport should the opportunity be presented again...this was fucking awesome.
