EDPA Access 2009 — Palm Springs

What can I say, other than “What a Week!”

I was in Palm Springs for the Annual EDPA Access Meeting. And a great week it was indeed! Very informative and thought provoking.

The general idea and motivation for the annual meeting is to bring trade show industry leaders together, lay down any competitive swords, and work together to better the industry. This year was exactly that.

2009 has been a tough year for everyone, yet there is significant optimism for 2010. We discussed how to improve the industry on many levels both in the near term and the distant future.

For those of you who were there, thanks for coming. It was great to spend time together. For those of you who could not make it, please mark your calendars for next year. You will not want to miss it.

To my friends at EDPA Access, thanks once again for reminding me why I love this industry! It was great to see you again. Your friendship and partnership continue to make me appreciate the people I have the great fortune to work with everyday

Be Well!

Have a safe and restful weekend!
