Since WPPI is going on right now, it seems appropriate to enjoy a throwback from one of the WPPI shows in the past - WPPI 2009. If there was ever a show when we pulled out all the stops, this one was it. That's part of the RF/WPPI team on the right side: George, me, Shauna, and Abby. Holding the red cup is John Popper of Blues Traveler.
This was the biggest show in WPPI history with over 15,000 in attendance; Rangefinder Magazine was over 350 pages; the Show Guide was close to the same; 300+ exhibitors, and thanks to Nikon's support, Blues Traveler in MGM's Garden Arena.
I know it's hard to imagine any big event like this these days, but if we're patient, those days will eventually come back. In the meantime, whatever size any conference is that you attend, the key is to stay focused on networking, expanding your skillset, and recharging your battery!
Take the time today to find your own Throwback Thursday moment and then savor it. There's nothing wrong with a fun look in your rearview mirror as long as you continue looking to the future!
Happy Throwback Thursday!
