So much to see at the 2018 International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) convention and expo! This year’s theme was “All In.” Even with three days to visit the expo, I still didn’t get to see everything. But the new exhibitors I interviewed have some interesting offerings you’ll see in my YouTube videos in the coming days and weeks. What happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas.
Meanwhile, here are some fun photos from the expo floor. You can always count on fabulous hair at the Trigard booth, with Linda Darby, Scott Darby and Scott Dowers showing great styles!
Across the hall, Dan Katz and Rolf Gutknecht with LAads Marketing invited visitors to relax in their first time booth. They are known for roaming the expo hall in red sneakers, prompting their moniker, “The Red Shoe Guys.” Love the photo of the headstone that reads, “JUDITH – Why is my husband over there and I’m here?”
Ring Ring Marketing had this giant coloring book display, with an artist at work filling in the drawing with big Sharpie markers.
In the back of the hall, I loved the big machinery on display. Check out the JCB 3CX Compact Backhoe Loader – it can dig a grave and fill it back up in no time!
And no funeral convention would be complete without the Living Statue Guy that Astral Industries brings in to every ICCFA and NFDA convention. On this day he was an Elvis impersonator. On the last day of the expo he was a white robed Grecian statue. Fun times with good people!
