Sears Blue Tool Crew Event at the National Hardware Show

The Sears Blue Tool Crew hosted one of the most informative (and fun) events we’ve attended at a trade show in some time. Thanks very much, Sears! – Publicizing products and services for clients manufacturing / selling home wares and hardware for years has exposed our team to some of the best products and brands on the market. We have spoken at and attended many trade shows, conferences, and events. But, there was something very different and special about the Sears Blue Tool Crew party, which was our pleasure to attend. The Blue Tool Crew staff members did an amazing job of combining a traditional PR event with new forms of social media, such as Twitter, videos, visuals, sights, sounds, etc. The result was a very cool vibe, a nice break from a busy day on the show floor and educational seminars. With multi-media, they treated attendees to a physical and online display of the many tools and brands they represent.

Check out the video below, and catch a glimpse of Jeff and yours truly, as we headed into the event ready for a great time with the Sears Blue Tool Crew. Then, read more below…
