Well, I attended my second Prima Art Venture this year! This time I took my new little mascot with me…Zeb the Zebra.
It started off with a bit of a problem…I went to pre-register on the Friday night (the night before the Art Venture). I was told that they didn’t have the goody bags yet, and they are starting the continental breakfast at 11:30 am with classes starting at 1 pm instead of classes starting at 8:30 am. The reason was that all the boxes were stuck at customs! What???!!! Whoah!
Ok…so I arrived the next morning for the continental breakfast, and we started at 1 pm.
Then half way through the class we had to stop because they only had enough supplies to start the class. The boxes hadn’t arrived still. So we were told to come back at 4 pm. We came back, and had to leave til 6:30 pm. Came back then and had to come back again at 7:30 pm. The boxes finally arrived!
By then, many people were angry. I just thought to myself…oh well, shit happens, right? One lady left after the first class, and got a refund for the rest. Oh well, to each his own. So we finished the first class, and went on to the next class. During that class, Denny (the event coordinator) came in and gave each of us a choice…either we can get $300 in Prima product shipped to us at no charge, or we can go to Prima Art Venture in Anaheim in January for free. Wow! That was sooooo unbelievably generous! I never expected that! I was saying to someone earlier that if they just give us a Kit-of-the-month box I would be happy. So this deal was amazing!
I just have to say that Prima Marketing is the best company ever! They went above and beyond for us attendees! Denny said that they (him and Prima) just wanted us to be happy. Was I ever happy! I had the best time!
