I still can’t stop smiling about the week I just had in Cologne, Germany with OhYeah! Nutrition for the 2013 FIBO Show! This was my second year attending this show and thought I’d be prepared for the busy 4 day expo ahead. I was shocked with how much busier this year was in a new city! On Saturday, the entire event reached about 1 MILLION visitors. If you have ever attended the Arnold Classic, you know how busy that show is. The Arnold consists of 1 or 2 Halls of booths and companies. The FIBO consists of 9 Halls! Can you even imagine? Check out this video to give you a better understanding of how BUSY it actually was!
When we arrived on Tuesday we were able to explore Cologne and visit one of the worlds biggest Cathedrals and the famous “Lock of Love” Bridge! Walking around the city was so much fun and a moment I will never forget.
The days of the expo were non-stop! Selling boxes of bars, answering questions on the products and taking pictures with OhYeah! fans was a blast! I have to be honest, Germany has the best OhYeah! fans around. They truly love the taste of the bars and couldn’t get enough! The fans got to sample our new bar flavor, Peanut Butter Crunch, our new Trail Mix Bars and our new Total Protein System powder flavors all 4 days! Let’s just say…they were a HUGE hit!
Not only was it awesome to work with a company each day that people truly love, I was also thankful to share the experience with my sister, Aimee Adams. This was her first international trip ever!
“Words cannot express how extremely thankful and blessed I am to have been asked to work the FIBO with not only the best nutrition company, but to be able to work an event in GERMANY! FIBO was 9x busier than the Arnold and I loved every minute of it. Not only did I get to experience my first international trip, I also go to celebrate my 24th birthday there! I was overwhelmed with how happy everyone was when they found out it was my special day. It’s known over there to greet someone with the warmest hug, 2 or 3 kisses on your cheek and well wishes for anyone’s birthday! We definitely don’t do that over here in the states. I think we should though! Ha! Overall, the experience with OhYeah! was more than I could have ever imagined!” –Aimee Adams
I also got the pleasure of working with new OhYeah! girl, IFBB Pro Tanja Canc from Slovenia. Tanja is one of the hardest working girls I have ever met. Not only did she have the best attitude each day, she taught all of us so much about the culture over there and was able to communicate better with the customers that didn’t speak English. Hey, I’m learning
Overall, the entire week couldn’t of been more of a success! We were able to tour the city, meet some amazing OhYeah! fans, celebrate my sisters birthday in an amazing city, learn more of the culture, try new foods and most importantly…completely SOLD OUT of all OhYeah! products!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the OhYeah! booth this year. We all appreciate your love and support for OhYeah! Until next time!
