Skyline Trade Show Tips
 
Dear Event Marketers,
 
I hope 2018 was prosperous and peaceful for you. It has gone entirely too quickly for me. It seems that as we get busier days rush in and out and if we are not too careful we end up missing opportunities for learning and growth.
 
In this issue we share some lessons from the field on how to protect your trade show exhibit so you can use it for years to come and maximize your budget. Also included are articles with a list of top North American shows for Q2 of 2019 so you can start making your travel plans, great restaurant recommendations in Chicago and, if you plan to exhibit internationally, a summary of our latest white paper "International Event Exhibiting - Trends and Outlook for Exhibiting Internationally." We wrap it all up with a short post about our "Oscar Worthy" Trade Show blog posts for 2018.
 
We are already busy planning our own events and trade shows for next year. We hope to see you at EXHIBITORLIVE 2019 in February where we will teach you how we "Tame the Trade Show Jungle." #TradeShowJungle
