The first full day of convention dawned bright and early with demonstrators lined up outside Main Stage, excited to enter for Convention 2012's opening session. When the doors opened, demonstrators were greeted by hundreds of cheering Stampin' Up! employees, eager to show their appreciation for all our demonstrators do!
General session began with a lively, fun video, shot at the home office with dozens of employees celebrating our "I am" convention theme. Shelli warmly greeted the full house of demonstrators, welcoming them to Salt Lake City and inviting each demonstrator to think about who they are.
One of the highlights for me each year is to see how Stampin' Up! decorates the stage and the definetely did not dissapoint…what a lovely set:
The session ended with keynote speaker, Jason Dorsey, speaking specifically about how to reach out and connect with Gen Y women, pointing out ways that this generation is unique, as well as highlighting things that we all share in common. He was both informative & HILARIOUS!!!
After the opening session, demonstrators attended breakout classes and Make & Take sessions. Demonstrators also spent lots of fun time visiting and swapping in the Gathering Place.
The afternoon general session opened with Sara greeting demonstrators and introducing the first march of Convention 2012–the Milestone Anniversary March–where demonstrators who have been with Stampin' Up! for 5, 10, 15, and 20 years are honored.
Following the march, demonstrators heard about MDS 2's exciting new features; Sara told the enthusiastic crowd that MDS 2 will be available on August 1. I cannot wait till it comes out!!!
