Trade shows - Let's be real here

I love this little gold trumpet guy. For some reason he just makes me want to take action.

He's yelling at me, "Come on everyone, let's go!"

We should listen to him, don't you think? I mean, yeah, let's go! Let's make the end of 2009 better than it's beginning.

You know just as well as I do that the big talk of 2009 has been... "How's business?" We get asked this so many times I've lost count.

The trade show industry is slow and that's a fact - I found stats anywhere from 8%-22% down. Trade shows cost money - alot of money. And right now, everyone is watching their money and how it's spent.

That's not a bad thing. It's a good thing. We all should tighten our buckle once and awhile.

While others are holding back, we find this a great time to re-invent things. We're a trade show company! We can invent and take on any new product we want to. And that's what we've decided to do.

So, we're changing gears from status quo to full speed ahead.
