As I walked around the Agenda Trade Show last week, I saw a lot of people sitting across tables from each other in the booths obviously doing business. That is the definition of a successful trade show. The sample of company executives I talked too seemed to confirm that. People were surprised by the number of buyers.
I’m not that worried about the vibe. How busy or crowded a show is is hard to judge. It’s impacted by things like the size of the aisles. And I don’t care how much free beer there is.
