Case Study : Tom Tom Founders Festival

A few weeks ago at the TTFF I had to set up my booth for the Murray B. Company, solo. Though I’ve had plenty of experience in production and event setup, this was my first time setting up a booth in a public space.  You are given a load-in time, at which point you are supposed to park illegally, completely unload your vehicle, then find parking.  While running back and forth from car to booth and back again, there are flashes of fear that something important might be misplaces, dropped, or stolen.

For this particular occasion, I was able to keep my most important items (phone, vendor cash, credit card swiper, and keys) in my Murray Belt while I was unloading. Since the Murray Belt is low-profile, it did not impede my ability to lift boxes, carry inventory, or stage furniture.  The icing on the cake for this event was that multiple other vendors purchased a Murray Belt for use at Artisanal Tom Tom and beyond. I can only hope it proves to be a useful tool for them as well.
