    Since we were talking about home show setups in another post, I thought I would throw these on here. This is a small display I setup for a fall home and garden show back in 04.

    last pics. This display was setup so you could walk all the way around it and see different water feature styles. There are 2 vanishing stream bubbler fountain/falls on the back side and a pebble waterwall on the patio side. We had a good response.

    No responses? Looks great! How do you guys get the water out of there after the show?

    Must be frusterating to spend so much time setting something up just to tear it down the next day

    That is a good looking "booth". I like the pebble water wall.

    My questions are,

    How much did it cost you to set up?
    How many leads did you get?
    How many jobs did you get from those leads?
    Did you do it again the next year?

    I want to know if it is worth if to spend that kind of money in order to get clients.

    It might be a minute before he responds I think he is moving across the country from Idaho to Indy at the moment.
