Hear about the "State of the Industry" from two people who have their fingers on the pulse of what's happening - Vinnie Polito, chair of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events, and Sean Guerre, chair of the Society of Independent Show Organizers. The session will be moderated by Tarsus Advon President Stephen Nold and will take a look at not only the external industry pressures like the impact of the economy downturn on shows, but also the internal pressures of innovation or new show business drivers. For example, are show organizers finding new ways to adopt online communities into the trade show experience. These topics and more will be discussed in what promises to be an informative panel.
