CES is the first big show that touches on imaging. While it's going on right now, most of you aren't headed that way. However, this weekend kicks off the convention season with IUSA in Nashville, followed by WPPI next month in Vegas and then ShutterFest in St. Louis. Those are the three BIG conventions on most of your calendars along with dozens of state conferences and winter workshops.
Every year I share a post like this with a long list of things to prepare in advance. Time is your most valuable commodity, so why not make the most of it? So many of you just register for a convention and then go - never thinking about why, what you want to see, who you want to meet or how the trip can help build your business!
Let's go through the annual list of things you need to do before any convention and then what you should be doing while you're there.
"A comfort zone is the most dangerous area anyone can stay in.
It's a place of no growth and no challenges."
P.S. If you're headed to IUSA this weekend, Most of the time Sheila and I will be in Panasonic's LUMIX Lounge. Stop by and say hello.
