The two-day exhibition format with no opposing meetings or seminars introduced at the 2003 Las Vegas Convention worked very welland this years show will feature the same format. Both exhibitors and attendees can concentrate on quality exhibition time without distraction; that means more booth visitors on both Thursday and Friday.
Attendees also will be able to take advantage of show-only specials and sales and explanations of new and existing products.
Demonstrations are a key element in trade show strategy and this year nine are scheduled across the two days. These demonstrations are a great way to find out about a product.
Preregistration turned up more than 207 companies that will be featuring their latest technologies and products designed for the dealer. More than 1,700 registrations already have been calculated with many more expected for onsite registration.
This week promises lots of business activity for both vendors and attendees that make the trek to "Charm City."
