SDE National Conference


Last week we exhibited at the SDE (Staff Development for Educators) National Conference, in Las Vegas. The lure of coffee and danish brought teachers in to the vast ballroom. All our products were on display. We demonstrated some of our innovative products, the StikkiClLIPS, Ceiling Hanglers and Art Gripper. WOWs and AHs were heard many times over, even for the Magnetic Marker Rings and Sloppy Stopper Activity Mat.

What we found most interesting was the response to our StikkiCLIPS. The clips have been around for 50 years. Some teachers remembered them from when they were kids; others were seeing them for the first time. It's the latter group, who more often than not, stated how "clever" the product is. Even today. Others were pleased to see the many fun shapes and colors that are available.

The Ceiling Hanglers brought the most WOW's. We heard the same story repeated over and know the one, use of the paper clip and string, then balance on a chair or desk, or perhaps the chair on the desk, to display art work, or whatever, from the grid ceiling. We had a "grid ceiling" so we could accurately demonstrate the ease and safety of the Ceiling Hangler line.

We were happy to be there to hand out samples and meet so many educators.
