As a growing business, Sorrentino Mariani is always aiming to break into new markets. We have been fortunate enough to make a successful break into the Healthcare Design industry. In light of our recent success, we are unveiling our brand new Senior Living logo, designed for us by the great Larry Peak of Norfolk, Virginia.
Although it may be small, our Senior Living collection certainly stands out from the crowd. Completely customizable and extremely stylish, this furniture is deserving of recognition. So my boss and I are taking a collection on the road to attend the Healthcare Design Trade Show in Nashville, Tennessee this November to show it off.
Personally, I have never been away from home without my parents. Never a vacation out of town, never a weekend away. With the exception of an evening trip up to Washington DC for a concert (where I spent the night with a family friend) I’ve never been farther than Richmond by myself or with friends. With that knowledge, I’m sure you’ll understand how excited I am to get away for a week, all expenses paid AND I’m getting paid to go. It may only be a state away, but I know that this is only a start for me. My boss is training me to step into her trade show shoes and take over that area of the business. There may even be a trade show in Vegas in my near future.
This conference is held by Healthcare Design Magazine and will take place at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. If you don’t know anything about Gaylord Hotels, let me just say, they are all gorgeous. They’re practically castles! They all have individually designed glass atriums with restaurants and gardens, looking like tiny little villages inside these grand hotels. I’m not sure it can really get fancier than that this side of the Atlantic. I am going to get to stay there. Me! I never imagined it to be true, but it’s really happening! Two months from now I will be clearing out of a swanky hotel, fresh from exhibiting in a conference recognized nationwide, rubbing elbows with accomplished designers. If it is possible to get more excited, I am afraid of what that looks like.
The exhibitors list is massive. On top of that, there are a ton of educational sessions, facility tours and students studying to be a part of the healthcare industry can even earn credit for going to it! The networking possibilities are endless. After the reverse trade show I went to last week, I feel prepared and ready to take it all on for a full four days instead of a mere 5 hours.
Now that I’ve rambled on and gushed over the Healthcare Design 2011 Trade Show, behold, our brand new Senior Living logo:
