Setting up at CHA…Behind the Scenes

January 9, 2016

Today is the first day of the trade show at CHA, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Lots of hard work, catching up and having fun has gone into setting up our booth over the past couple of days. The booth is up,  it’s looking great and the trade show doors are open, but let’s take a moment to have a peek at what we’ve all been up to over the past couple of days…

Suzanne is always smiling! Even when she's working hard to get the booth together.

Els and Karen

Karen Burniston and Els van de Burgt took a quick break to post a picture of themselves hanging out on our red carpet to Facebook.
