Don’t KILL The Tradeshow

I just wrote a blog post for System Contractor News, a leading industry magazine. Here’s a sample:

InfoComm is only days away now. Gosh, manufacturers are filling up my inbox with marketing materials, some good… some laughable. Everyone is getting ready for the show and looking forward to all the tech goodies strewn across the Las Vegas Convention Center show floor.
