An event that everyone who is part of the world of hunting tourism should attend. There is a lot to see in those few days, and a lot can be learned with a little luck and of course with a person who is willing to help. “Welcome to the city of sin,” a familiar, unpretentious person greeted us: “Let’s go to dinner, so I’ll tell you what I’ve prepared for you.” Sales, sales, sales – everything is for sale, everything has its price and everything is a show. Booth is a show, every conversation is a show, meetings are a show, presentations are a show, auctions are a show – everything is a show.
“Ah, you arrived, you Drazen, stay with me a bit, did you bring the catalogs, the pictures, the offers – why did you came to the show for. Go around and review the Red stag prices. ” Of course, I did not take that role so responsibly, but although the principal was dissatisfied with the performance, he did not take it so bad and my further residence did not suffer. You have to be very concentrated in order to achieve your goals – because there are so many things that distract you and all are attractive and interesting. Panoramas with animals, presentations, catalogs, hunting equipment, weapons, hunting tourism – terrible. And all that based in Las Vegas – it’s really hard to maintain concentration and focus on the goals you’re there for – but this is “SHOW.” The first day of the SCI show is over, let’s now take a look at the city. But it’s not walking – in Las Vegas, it’s a car ride across the street. A familiar face comes from our backs: “What’s up, guys, do you spend US Dollars like Croatian currency Kuna / come on, I’ll take you out to dinner.” Again nothing of sightseeing, but the evening passed for me with an endless source of information that meant a lot to me in the field of hunting tourism.
The second day I spent some time alone at our host`s Booth. He let me talk about selling with a few clients, but this time he did not hide his dissatisfaction:”so you really don’t know anything, so why didn’t you bring a measuring tape with you”, alluded to the way of selling at a trophy value that I tried to explain to clients who were used to a different form of sales. “Customize your products to the market you serve and the customers you serve, why do you think that they care about your points.”
The last day we went to visit the Grand Canyon – that brought us back to the cowboy movies and helped to clear our minds before returning home.
Everything else that happened – stay`s at Vegas!
