Today we're taking a break from our series on why it's always a good idea to keep a reusable water bottle on hand. Instead, we're looking back at the Adventure+Gear Fest in Sandy, Utah on April 8th and 9th.
As this was BottlePro's first event as exhibitors, and we had no idea what to expect (so new that we forgot to take a picture of our booth!). But we went ahead and ordered a banner 2 weeks before the event, scrounged up a few other items we'd need, and headed to the show!
Glad we did because the response was great! A ton of gearheads showed up looking for the latest outdoor recreation gear, and BottlePro's connection with large water bottles like Hydro Flasks, Klean Kanteens, and Nalgenes helped us fit right in. Our BottlePro car cup holder adapter and HYDROStrap add-on bottle handles both sold well and gained a lot of interest (it helped that we were right next to the professional slackliners...those guys were unbelievable, doing backflips on essentially a 2" wide bungee cord!).
We also ran a raffle that anyone could enter for their chance to win a FREE BottlePro! We drew the 5 random winners this past weekend. Congratulations to Christopher Krause, Austin Beede, Harmony, Courtney Clayburn, and Jesse Gariepy!
Thanks to everyone else who entered. Maybe we'll see you again at a future show!
