OnStage Live Registration began and the atmosphere was building. We headed over to the Convention Centre to get checked in for OnStage Live 2018. Oh my goodness, were we kiddy with excitement!
OnStage Live Registration is the time when we receive our Convention Bag. It’s always a time of great excitement to see what the bag will be like and what goodies will be inside. We often receive our first FREE Stamp Set from the up coming Catalogue. It’s during this period, that we’re all given our achievement ribbons to wear too.
Wasn’t this packing just gorgeous for the 30th Anniversary?!
Although everyone loves the freebies that we receive, it’s the friendships and sisterhood that are one of the biggest draws for me. I love having the time to meet up with others … some for the first time. I was fortunate enough to have been able to meet up with pretty much everyone I had hoped to see there, which I’m amazed at considering the pure volume of people there. This large group is of most of the European Demonstrators who travelled out to Orlando. Some where missing, but there were in the region of about 60 of us. Check out the Union Jack Flags to the right and you might just spot me.
These are just a few catch ups that I managed whilst out there. Ive always been somewhat shy to put myself forward to meeting my idols, but I had promised myself to speak up and capture some memories for a change … we only live once.
Centrestage at Epcot
This year Stampin’ Up! rewarded Centrestage achievers with a day trip to Epcot to celebrate the 30th Anniversary there. The weather was perfect and I shared my time with one of my travel companions, Liz Yuille, who was celebrating her first ever CentreStage. It was lovely to have shared this time with her and introduce her to a good few faces that she’d not met.
CentreStage is for Silver Elite title and above who are deemed Leaders within the company. The company rewards it’s leaders at each Centrestage with gifts, a meal or experience and some training. Epcot was to be the venue for Centrestage this year and the meal switched for yummy deserts. With the Food Festival taking place around Epcot, we took the opportunity to sample little meals from various countries.
Centrestage in America was vastly larger than that of the UK, but then there are thousands more Demonstrators.
Top Demonstrators often have me left star struck and Patty Bennet was by no means any exception. With a promise to myself to step outside of my comfort zone and approach people, I finally said my hello. I’ve seen her on Incentive Trips, but have never had the courage to go and meet her.
The evening finished with Fireworks and us leaving with a gift and a copy of the up coming Spring/Summer Catalogue. Whoooo hoooo this was what I wanted to see and boy are there some beauties in there to share. All customers of mine receive a FREE Copy of every up coming catalogue, so be sure to reserve your copy.
I’ll share more of the main OnStage Live Event for another post.
