Lifesavers isn’t all business. Turns out, the law enforcement and traffic safety community does party quite a bit. Well, you probably guessed that, but you might be surprised that the CPS community does, too. In fact, a few carseat moms put back more Guinness than I did at our Car-Seat.Org reception last night (that ended up in Findley’s Irish Pub). I’m not naming any names, but you know who you are! Well over a dozen online advocates attended. Most of us were seated just one table over from the collection of manufacturers representatives. That was quite a fortunate coincidence, as it gave Heather and I an opportunity to beg for some carseat giveaways, after they’d let down their defenses from all the other beggars at the conference exhibits. Stay tuned, as I think at least a couple nice giveaways will be forthcoming over the next few weeks!
Sad you couldn’t make it? Don’t despair! Start making plans for Philadelphia, April 11-13, 2010 for Lifesavers next year. Even better, set aside August 11-13th, 2011, for what I hope will be the largest collection of online techs and advocates yet, the Kidz In Motion Conference in Orlando. We may also make appearances at KIM 2009 and 2010 along with the ABC Kids Expo each fall in Vegas, but put the two above in your calendars now.
More to come from the show!
