National Event Supply at the Golf Business Canada Show
Serenity Crystal

On November 15th and 16th, the National Event Supply Tradeshow Team was at the Deerhurst Resort in Hunstville, Ontario exhibiting at the 2012 Golf Business Canada Show. This is the fourth time that we've done this show, and this year's show was once again at a great location. Deerhurst Resort is where the leaders from the G8 countries met for their G8 Summit in June of 2010.

Once again we had a great booth location, located on the right hand aisle directly across from one of the world’s leading Golf Club suppliers, Club Car. Club Car was also a Gold Sponsor for the event this year.

We spent Thursday afternoon setting up our booth to show a wide selection of our dish lines including our best-selling Quadrato Square dinnerware, our Hotelier Round dinnerware, and our everyday value Pearl White line. This year's show was the first time we had the opportunity to show our new Serenity Crystal Stemware, and it was very well received. We also showed a range of our folding tables and chairs, including our very popular resin Chiavari chairs. Because we had so many products to show this year, it took us most of the afternoon to get set up.


National Golf Club Owners Association

The show started Friday at 10am with a flurry of activity as the attendees rushed in to see the new and exciting products they could buy for next year’s Golf Season. The National Event Supply booth was quite busy throughout the day, and we were pleased to able to see a number of our current customers including Ryan Seutter from Country Side Golf Course in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Brenda O’Reilly of Stone Tree Golf and Fitness Club in Owen Sound, Ontario and Vince Boada from the Cardinal Golf Club in Kettleby, Ontario. We also met with quite a few new Golf Club Owners we had never seen before. For the most part, Golf Clubs were interested in how we could help them drive new revenues (from Weddings or Special Events) or how we could help them save money in their Food & Beverage Operations. While most of the Golf Clubs were interested in the broad range of products we have to offer, the most popular items were our always popular White Wedding Style Resin Folding chairs, our Plastic folding tables, and our large Melamine serving platters and bowls.


During the show we had the pleasure of meeting with Don MacKay, the outgoing President of the NGCOA and owner of the Muskoka Highlands Golf Club. Don thanked us for our participation and support of the NGCOA’s annual Golf Business Canada Show. If you didn't make it to the show and would like to learn about products that can help drive events to your course, please don't hesitate to ask us any questions.

Introducing Serenity Crystal Stemware for Party Rental, Restaurants & Caterers

Wow, I can’t believe it’s June already! We have been crazy busy since the start of 2012. We started off the year with the beginning of our Trade Show season, first with the BC CRA Regional show in Langley, BC in mid-January 2012, and finishing up in late March at the 2012 Quebec Expo in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec. Over the course of the winter trade show season, our team collectively travelled more than 46,000 km (almost 27,000 miles)--enough to travel around the world! In total, we did 7 trade shows over a 12 week period and met with hundreds of our customers and many more potential new customers.

Then in April, Diana and I were off to China to see some new suppliers as well as work on sourcing a range of new products. Over the next year I think you will see many exciting new additions from us including additions to existing product lines as well as entirely new product lines.

Serenity CrystalAs a sample of things to come, in March we introduced our new Serenity line of lead-free Crystal. Prior to bringing in our first shipment, we wanted to test the quality of the Crystal so we brought some of the glasses home to see how they would perform. We have been using the glasses 3 to 4 times a week and washing them in our dishwasher. On a number of occasions we have also hand washed and hand dried them with a dish towel. More than 5 months into this routine, our Serenity Crystal Stemware has held up without any issues at all--no broken stems and no broken bowls.

Serenity Crystal Stemware is not only durable, but also has a classic look that will makes your customers smile. The 19 ounce and the 22 ounce glass are very similar in shape to two lines of Riedel glasses we have at home. And with our prices ranging from $2.65 to $2.95 they are a fraction of the price of several brand name Crystal wine glasses.

As a result of not just the quality but also the feedback we received early on from some of our customers on the attractive appearance of our Serenity crystal glassware, we decided to start stocking 6 different pieces to introduce the Serenity Crystal to our Customers. These 6 pieces are a 22oz, 19oz, 16oz, and 12oz wine glass as well as 7oz Martini Glass and 7oz Champagne Flute. The 22oz wine glass is great for use as a water glass or as a red wine glass. The 19oz wine glass on the other hand is great for use as a white wine glass. The Serenity Crystal is a great choice for anyone looking to offer the high end look that everyone is looking for while still keeping your costs reasonable and ultimately helping to improve your ROI.
