Aug 9, 2017

Episode 169- Nick Deviley returns to catch us up on the state of affairs in the world of trade shows as well as tons of value bombs for those who want to or are attending trade shows to sell your work.  

1-year later since we spoke and the trade show landscape continues to expand and becoming almost overwhelming.

With Champs, AGE, GlassRoots, Glass Vegas, and BIG, the  dates are overlapping and the tradeshow market is expanding to different parts of the country.  This includes Florida, Vegas, New Jersey, Philly, Colorado, Wisconsin, and New York.
