“Free virtual trade shows, I hope, are going to continue to grow in importance. Combine the trade show with some related technical presentations, and you'll have lots of online participants.”

“There is another benefit, for older attendees. People like myself, with medical problems such as COPD, are able to attend! I went into a coma at a trade show in Las Vegas four years ago, due to physical stress at the show.”
