Regional Trade Show of January 13th
Ahead of the trade show of January 13th, it was decided to implement a new strategy for increasing both wages and sales: certain employees would be designated as buyers at trade shows, being paid special bonuses to make deals with other companies to purchase each other's products, so as to enhance trade show revenues. However, this strategy proved unsuccessful, as not all employees paid this bonus actually made purchases at the trade show, while other companies' products in a similar price range also tended to be slightly more expensive, not including tax in the listed price of their products as we do. Although we did make more than $20,000 on the day, we made a net loss of more than $7,000 when taking into account the full expenses of the sales strategy we implemented.
Our sales efforts were not aided by our arch rivals A.R. World, who repeatedly engaged with our sales representatives without any intention of making purchases in order to waste our time. In particular, A.R. World CEO Thomas Y. "Bubba" Chen has been banned from the Comm Communications sales booth at future trade shows, as he had previously engaged in this malevolently underhanded practice at prior trade shows on multiple occasions. Mr Chen has reportedly told confidants that he is proud to have been banned and expresses no remorse for his unscrupulously deceitful actions.
The next trade show will be the second National Trade Show on February 13th (a Saturday), followed by the third NY Metro & Northeast Regional Trade Show on March 17th and finally the International Trade Show on April 20-21st.
