Exhibits – What It Takes

I was talking with Steven Strand from S&C about planning, designing, building, and staffing an exhibit. He told me S&C has a very large if not the biggest display in the show – Chicago is home and they are proud of it. They started working on the 2008 Chicago Expo the day after the 2006 Dallas Expo closed. S&C started manufacturing equipment the first week of January. Dozens of contractors and employees have been committed to the effort. It will take them 4 to 5 days to set it all up and will be staffed with close to 200 sales people from around the world. That is commitment. I'd welcome any and all comments. Tell me what you think.
