Trade Show Feature
Nomad lived up to their promise and produced an exciting event that drew folks into our exhibit. People had more fun than I would have believed as the Nomad crew ran a flawless three days of racing with top quality equipment and expert racing supervision. Jim created a custom track scaled to our space and did so under a tight timetable. We paid the estimated price and were elated with the level of service and commitment from the Nomad team. Thanks, Nomad, for helping us deliver a great experience to our visitors.

Conference Series Traffic-builder
For three seasons and over 24 events, Nomad Slot Racing has made the Kaspersky booth a real attraction in the Solutions Exchanges across the US Canada and internationally.. Jim has been 100% reliable and tirelessly engaged our clients with humor and unmatched professionalism. It’s amazing that one man and his racing game can draw traffic, scan attendees, entertain, inform, engage, distribute and manage promotional items. Awesome!

Small Company Party
Our racing party at Nomad was the perfect event for our company. An affordable option. EVERYONE was involved and we never had so much fun with our coworkers. Slot racing gave us a way to play together, and I think the bonding we did will help us work together better than ever! Thank you Nomad Slot Racing!

Nomad was the perfect complement to our booth. Our staff engaged our visitors as never before, and collected a record number of scans. Joe was fun, charming, entertaining and professional.

Onsite Birthday Party
I could not wait to share. After leaving your store and jumping into my Tahoe packed with six very happy kids, I landed in my seat to receive a loud resignation of happiness and contentment. In 8 years of party giving and going, I can honestly say that I have never heard so many satisfied kids say thank you without being prompted at the end of an event. In unison, all exclaimed "Thank You Mrs. Deletion, we had SO MUCH fun!" Wow. Thanks for a GREAT time and for treating each one of our group as if they were welcome and important. Even Claudine (the other parent) expressed how she enjoyed your party package and how great you were with the kids. You were so organized and managed to keep everything moving and fun. I am very glad that we found your slot car racing company and hope to visit as often as possible. Tomorrow I will hand out your company cards and I hope this will bring some long term new customers.

Birthday Party at Home with Delivery of Home Slot Car Track
Just wanted to thank you again for a great party – I’ve never seen kids more excited. Hopefully we’ve created some enthusiasts. I was hoping we’d get to your shop this week, but it looks like it will have to be next. I’m anxious to get back on Quadrophenia and open up the Scalextric Peugeot’s. They fly on our track, but they need room to run. Dante’s still wrapping his head around the idea that he gets to keep the track. By the way – he thinks it’s a birthday present from you. Hope to see you soon.
Everyone in the company from accounting, to sales, administration to techs, had a blast! I did not think I could play a game like this and I actually beat the techs (hurrah!) and my boss! (oops!) Thanks Nomad! Race on!

Subject: More RSA Coverage
WatchGuard was highlighted in CRN at the beginning of RSA as one of the things to see at the show; WatchGuard Application Control was the first thing on that list. Today, CRN published a recap of the show, "25 Scenes from RSA"... once again, the racetrack proved to be a crowd magnet (and in this case, a press magnet, too). Thought you'd enjoy seeing this feature on the event website.
Michael and his friends were thrilled with the race car track. The great surprise came when I discovered parents and grandparents also racing! Thank you for bringing such a quality entertainment. Jim was courteous, engaging, patient and professional. I’ll recommend him to all my friends!

Nothing like a little “speed” to get our sales reps charged up! This was a great entertainment for our networking party and a fun competition nearly everyone participated in. Racing for our door prizes was much more exciting than calling ticket numbers! Thank you Nomad, for adding added zip to our meeting!

We’ve tried many ways to raise funds at our school fair. Having seen them in action, I knew Nomad would be a great attraction both kids and parents would enjoy. (They were!) I was less certain that ticket sales would offset the costs. Jim suggested that I seek a business sponsor to cover Nomad’s fee. I reached out to a local business supporter. With the opportunity to have their name on the exciting racetrack at the center of our event, it was an easy ask. On the day of the fair, Jim was professional, and clearly the hit of the event, we sold more tickets than ever before and the business supporter was pleased with the exposure and good will gained from having his company mentioned so many times in the exciting play by play calling of the races and logos on the track and cars. The kids and business partner are looking forward to racing again next year!

Car Show Attraction
We wanted something to keep the kids busy. I forgot how many of us are big kids! Wow! Slot Car Racing is still fun!
South Coast Cruisers
Nomad was my Swiss Army tool for this show. Not only did they provide a novel attraction, they added an edge of excitement and competition. They increased our visibility by branding the cars and track with our logos. And they looked great! I ordered extra cars as VIP gifts. Jim’s play by play call of the races projected our message as each car was named after a different feature. The racing table even provided display space at the center of attention. Pricing, including all related expenses, was very reasonable. I’m sure we’ll use Nomad Slot Racing again!

Car Club Event
The Austin Healey Conclave was the site of exciting racing produced by Nomad Slot Racing. They even conducted a craft session for the kids to build miniature Healey’s to be raced all weekend! Super fun for all ages!

The Kaspersky Cup
The original of this blog can be read here
A tech conference, lots of caffeine and a slot track. Sound like a winning combination? Yeah! That’s what I thought too. Now I’ve been to quite a few tech conferences but I’ve never seen a slot track at one before. But Kaspersky Labhad one at their booth at the VMware Forum in Cincinnati, OH today. Jim Cunningham, from Nomad Slot Racing, was running the track and Kaspersky sponsored a contest to win a free Kindle Fire. The track was the buzz at the conference and the contest was dubbed The Kaspersky Cup.
The concept was simple. Race in groups of 6 and if you win, you get a sticker and move on to the next round. Racers were standing around the booth all day and collecting their stickers while the rest of the conference was going on around them. I managed to get my sticker before heading off to one of the break out sessions.
At the end of the day, when the conference started to wrap up, sticker winners started racing each other for the prize. My race was quick and it was over before I knew it. Others continued to race until their conference passes were covered with stickers and they got down to the final 6 and then to 1. The winner of the Kindle Fire and the Kaspersky Cup.
A big thank you to Jim Cunningham and especially Kaspersky Lab for making this happen. ~cw
There were many creative booths and stands at the Solutions Exchange. One of our favorites was Kaspersky Lab's. They were running slot car races throughout the conference.
