Many of us here at Mighty Ape spent the weekend at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland for the annual Armageddon Expo, and despite the aching feet and the huge backlog of work we've created for ourselves back at the warehouse, we had a LOT of fun and can't wait for next year's show.
It may come as a surprise to you that, despite being made up of a bunch of geeks and nerds, this was in fact our first appearance at the show. We've learned a lot, and reckon getting out there and meeting so many of our awesome customers (and some new ones, too!) was one of the best experiences we've had so far in 2010.
So a big “thanks!” to those who managed to swing by our stand…it was really cool to meet you, talk geek with you and put a face to your order number :P
A special thanks too to our new friends at VendHQ for their awesome web-based point-of-sale system…highly recommended for retail n00bs like us (well, some of us).
For those who couldn't make it…we'd love to see you next year. And if you live in Wellington, a little bird tells me we're investigating a road trip down to the capital for the next show…what do you think?!
