In my industry, there is a show that pops up once every four years. It probably takes that much time to organize the damned thing properly– it is that big and that important. For us, it is an absolutely huge event since we provide a service that pretty much every exhibitor to the show could conceivably use. Our investment in time and energy for the thing is immense.

For me, that means a lot of extra work since a good chunk of the preparation falls on my shoulders. I am involved in the planning and execution at almost every level.

Point being: the show starts next week and is the reason for my current near-silence. I will post some pics from the event next week, but no serious commentary will be returning for at least a few more weeks. Just in time for me to be heading off on my vacation, in fact…
