I just came back from doing some Las Vegas trade show magic for one of my repeat clients. CNC Factory hired me again because of the good work I did last time. We played hard due to the fact we worked hard! It was nice to be flown out to Las Vegas and stay in a mansion that the CEO of CNC Factory rented for himself, his employees as well as me. We had an absolute ball! The trade show I worked was called the AWFS or the Association of Woodworking and Furnishing Suppliers. The fair was located at the Las Vegas Convention Center: Las Vegas Convention Center.
We worked hard from July 19 thru July 22 so we rewarded! Our team went to eat at the Rio Hotel where Penn and Teller performs! We ordered the seafood buffet as well as all the other buffets so all of us ate well:
The client was happy and so would like to hire me for a third time. I performed a “Nut and Bolt” magic trick using a nut and a bolt that “magically” unscrews itself from the bolt to capture the audience’s attention. The audience really enjoyed the magic tricks and hence did a good job of bringing people to the booth! CNC Factory got a lot of people in their booth because of my magic! The magic works very well in capturing attention and consequently getting people to stop.
I have other potential clients now interested in hiring me for trade show magic because of the job I did in Vegas. I checked with CNC Factory first to be sure they didn’t mind me working for some of the other interested clients. Trade show magic will be a great addition for these new clients when they exhibit at their future events!
