Home and Garden Show

This past weekend Lifetime's official outlet store, Backyards Inc, was at the Spring Home and Garden Show in the South Towne Expo Center of Utah. Traditionally, this is one of it's biggest shows of the year, and this year was no exception. The Backyards booth was packed as usual. The final tally of guests at the show was estimated at 35,000-50,000 people! 
 
Backyards debuted several new Lifetime products at this show, that they have never got to show off here before. The Jumping Jack Tent Trailer, Double Shot, and the new 7x7 Shed were all very popular. Many customers commented on  the 7x7 shed, saying it was a lot of shed for the money. And their actions proved it--- It was the best selling shed at the show! 

As usual for Backyards Inc, they spent a majority of the time talking tp people about playsets. Since they have recently taken over retail sales for playset manufacturer Backyard Adventures, Backyards Inc. now sells wood playsets alongside Lifetime metal playsets. Since they put both on display, several people voiced concerns that the metal playsets would get too hot for their children to play on. Lifetime has heard this concern a few times, and those at the show were excited to explain that Lifetime playsets are made with 100% powdercoated metal, and the powdercoating makes them retain much less heat in the sun. Also, the slides and roof-tops are all plastic, which retains very little heat as well.

Other products on display (and for sale) at this show included:

Lifetime playsets
Lifetime sheds
Lifetime Tetherball
The Lifetime Airplane
Lifetime Double shot
Jumping Jack Tent Trailer by Lifetime
Lifetime Deck box
Lifetime Glider bench
And plenty of Lifetime Kids picnic tables!

If you're in Utah this time next year, hope to see you at the Spring Home Show!

An all new www.Lifetime.com
Over here at Lifetime Products Mission Control, we try to keep our flagship website up-to-date not only with the latest content, but also with the latest in techology and design. When we visit websites we tend to like the ones that frequently update their content; have a clean, easy to use navigation scheme; and are fun to interact with. We think these kinds of sites encourage people to come back (that's called "repeat viewership" in web lingo) and to explore the site (that's called "multiple page views"). So, we added some flash, we added some interesting articles, and much more before wrapping it all up in a fancy new design that we hope you'll love! Why don't you head on over to www.Lifetime.com, surf around a little bit, then come back here and let us know what you think!
Syracuse City uses Lifetime Products
In Syracuse, Utah, Were lucky to have a community center that houses workout equipment, a running track, double-gymnasium, and has various classrooms and meeting rooms. Recently my fellow web developers attended the Davis County .Net Users Group which was held in one of the Community Centers classrooms. These user group meetings are generally held lecture-style, with the speaker presenting at the front of the room with their laptop computer hooked up to a projector displaying the material on the far wall. In this setup both the speaker and the attendees had plenty of sitting room and table space available. In the room were half-a-dozen Lifetime folding tables, Lifetime folding chairs, and a Lifetime chair cart loaded with even more folding chairs. It was nice to see that my city had taken the time to research the best prod...
My backstage experience..
As Katie mentioned in the last post, our semi-annual company meeting was a success! By the way, I want to put this disclaimer out there: I was asked to write a blog post on my experience at the Semi-Annual meeting, so I did not volunteer to write this post. So here it goes: Im sitting backstage feeling a little anxious for the big event. Its Profit Sharing! It happens twice a year and Katie and I have worked hard getting presentations, videos, and everything else organized for the meeting. As I watch Katie finalize a few things on the final presentation, my adrenaline starts going. The backstage men in black, as I call them, give us the queue. Time to begin! The opening video rolls, then Richard (our President) runs out and begins his presentation. He then announces the founders wife, Kathy, will present the Humanitarian of...
