Wow! These past 4 days have been quite a whirlwind for the team here at Saffire. We just returned from the TFEA Conference and Trade Show in San Antonio and it's safe to say we had a blast!
The weekend kicked off with a wonderful party at the Lambermont, a historic castle in the heart of San Antonio. The evening was filled with mariachi music, food trucks, entertainment from the legendary Vince Vance and even a laser show!
We were honored when Jennifer Allison asked Saffire to design the logo and website for this conference. The theme came together perfectly and Jennifer and the Board of Directors put on a wonderful event.
Saffire friends, please join us in congratulating our very own Jerry Huffman from the Texas State Forest Festival for being named the new Chairman of TFEA. We know he will do a great job leading this organization!
We were surprised and thrilled when Saffire received the award for "Best Trade Show Booth" at lunch on Saturday.
It's safe to say we got at least one vote from Mary with the Pasadena Strawberry Festival, who also happened to be the winner of our TV Giveaway! The team from their event was a lot of fun and we had a blast sitting with Mary and her friends at the Marketing Awards Dinner.
Ladies, remember to send us info so we can get some blinging shirts like yours! They were just so cute!
Of course we couldn't be with so many of our friends at TFEA without having a little get together of our own. The yummy queso and pink lemonade margaritas we served helped us make some new friends.
Our team wants to give a big thanks to several supporters of Saffire for making the special effort to come to our happy hour. It means a lot!
On Friday night, we took a break from the conference and enjoyed a nice dinner at Paloma Blanca with our friends from Palomino Fest and Heart 'O Texas Fair & Rodeo who were also in San Antonio. The food and company were both a treat for all of us!
Overall, we had a great time at our first TFEA Conference. The people we met were so kind and welcoming, and we couldn't have asked for more. We're already looking forward to catching up with many of our new friends at the joint conference in January!
We'll leave you with this last photo which best describes our weekend: fun!
