Recently at EDPA Access 2017 I was approached by a good friend of mine from the industry, Mike Morrison from WH Display who also is the host of the Don & Mike Show which is a Podcast for the Event and Experiential Marketing world. Mike is joined on the weekly podcast by Don Svehla who is the publisher of Exhibit City News, another friend that I have known for many years. They expressed an interest to discuss current issues in transportation that affect the trade show industry. I appreciated the opportunity to discuss with Mike some of the issues that companies who ship in and out of trade show’s may experience.
You never know when you might be able to help someone. You also never know when you might be able to put your trade show experience to use while away from the office or as the guys I helped incorrectly assumed, "on vacation". I know that most of you who also work in trade shows often are envied by family and friends of all the great resort and vacation cities we are traveling to, envisioning someone of means and class, jet setting around the globe. If you’re like me, in your head you're thinking out loud, "uh, not so much".
