It's coming around again--the Exhibitor's Show in Las Vegas.
It's hard to believe it's been a year, but the package (actually, the latest one) came in the mail yesterday. It was like Christmas for exhibit people--lots of options for training and interaction. The crowd who attend are really a who's who of the trade show and exhibit industry, both from the supplier and the customer side.
Before you dismiss this as a shameless plug, remember this: every time management and self-help guru out there says we all need time to regroup and "sharpen the saw" or something similar. Don't neglect your training and certainly don't neglect your network.
Lesson Learned: always be open to learning something new and meeting new people--your career depends upon it.
