Hi, If you want to get noticed in the mobs you are going to
have to do something rather dramatic to get the attention. A pin/
badge sticker is great when you are up close and personal but the
rest of the time even wearing a neon sign over your head is going to
have trouble pointing you out. The best bet is to plan a meeting
time way ahead so all who are interested can attend.
You’re absolutely right. I’ve changed my mind. Nobody is going to
notice a pin/sticker on a badge, at least not at the crowded shows I
attend. I think we have 3 things going on heRe: recognize fellow
orchidians, advertise the URL, and mingle. A pin is not going to cut
it so I am going to wear a lavendar T-shirt that says “Orchid List
www.ganoksin.com”. That will accomplish goals 1 & 2 and I confess that
I am one of those who wear comfortable T-shirts at the show anyway.
I believe goal #3 can only be accomplished with a pre-arranged meeting
place as during the show hours I shop 'til I drop and don’t want to
miss one minute!
