Eagles Cheerleaders Sign On for Philly Expo

Tue February 24, 2004 - Northeast Edition

Negotiations almost broke down at the last minute. Just as our prospective guests were about to sign the contract to appear at the Philadelphia Construction Expo V, their attorneys requested lavish personal dressing rooms at the Fort Washington Expo Center.

We, at Construction Equipment Guide, responded by saying that we would only agree to this demand if the Philadelphia Eagles promised to either draft or sign some talent at the wide receiver position. Neither side could assure the other that this would happen, so we just went ahead and signed the contract.

So, without further ado, we’re proud to announce that our specials guests for the Philly Expo on March 9 and 10 will be three Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders — Kelly Tomasic, Amanda Wynn and Amanda Morris (we couldn’t decide which Amanda we wanted so we figured let’s hire both.)

On both days of the show, our guests will be on hand at the Expo Center to cheer you on as you make your way down the aisles visiting the more than 100 exhibitors already signed up to showcase their wares.

By the way, only a handful of exhibitor space remains, so if you’re considering exhibiting, call Sheila Kirby, CEG’s trade show manager, at 800/523-2200 for details.

Again, the show will feature more than 70,000 sq. ft. of indoor exhibit area, plus an expanded static outdoor area.
