Nice to meet you

Next week I will be attending the International Parking Institute (IPI) Conference and Expo in New Orleans. It’s a chance to meet with colleagues and customers face-to-face; shake hands, look them straight in the eye and have a conversation. What a concept, huh? I know I’ve talked about this before, but even though trade shows can be a grind, there’s something to be said about the up close and personal opportunity they provide.

Sharing stories by text or email doesn’t even compare to the experience of sharing them over a cup of coffee or dinner. Putting a name to a face makes a real connection. In this high tech, push a button, let it fly era, that’s a good thing. It’s too easy to make excuses not to take the time to meet with people. An event like this makes it happen. I’m looking forward to it.

So, for anyone attending the show next week, stop by Booth 1116 and say hello. Look forward to meeting you.
