On Feb. 23, students from the Virtual Enterprise Regional Occupational Program class held at Golden Valley High School participated in an all-day trade fair that took place in Long Beach, Calif.

Sixty-five companies were part of this amazing experience and took advantage of this opportunity to work at hands-on the "trade market."

The companies were very impressive and the products looked very creative and well-presented.

There was a lot of preparation during the weeks prior to the event. Once at the show, we had two hours to set up our booth and worked very hard on making it look the best.

After the booth was finished, we attended an introduction meeting with the companies participating in the event and allowed for judging their booths.

Toward the end of the show awards were announced, and our booth was awarded fourth place for "booth design" and "advanced Web site."

Even though we didn't get first place, we were all very proud of our accomplishments, because the most important thing was that we worked hard as a team - and were able to be part of such an amazing event.

It was a great experience to see how the virtual world works. It's not just buying - you also have to make sure the customers leave with a big smile on their face.

Of course, the company we worked with, Acoustic Cakes and Apparel, made sure that they all did.

The trade fair experience was really great for me since this was the first semester I have ever been in Virtual Enterprise.

I advise any student considering a major in business to take this ROP Virtual Enterprise class.
